My 4 y/o's first show

So here's a video of one of Costa's tests. I don't like this one as much, because his gaits are flatter than they are normally, as this was his 4th ride of the day...but it also doesn't show him bucking during his canter transitions, and I figure this one would be a better one to show to prospective buyers
(although still unsteady with the contact, but I suppose I can cut him some slack, because he handled the show venue and all the crazy flowers much better than I had anticipated)
This was Training Level Test 2, and his score was 63%. (with 7s and 8s on his walk, 5s on a couple of his trots because of his head tilting that he had going on and 6s on his canter (which were all 7s at the start of the day LOL)) He was a good boy though :) Feel free to critique if you want! He is for sale (so I won't be heartbroken if you tear him apart), and has been undersaddle for about 6 months now.

I like that free walk. Can't get much more relaxed than that.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

Before I tried to market him I would shore up those canter transitions but other than that he looks like a pretty solid little greenie. He's cute and I too love his walk.

Wow, thats good fro being undersaddle for only six months! It took my friend mary 1 and a half years to get those results with her little girl.

In the end, we're not certain if God entrusts us to our horses
or our horses to us.Does it matter?
We're grateful God loaned us the horse in the first place. <3
