Alrighty, now that I'm not responding on my phone, haha!
Anebel - that's good to know about the pirouette, I've watched horses do it and I could swear they were four-beating. That's what it feels as if my horse is doing, too. I can bump him up to a normal lope, but he doesn't stay quite as well into the same spot. I'd really have to see it on video of myself.
It makes me wish we had a mirror to watch while riding.
