What did the lameness test show? I noticed when your horse began trotting and was moving away from the camera, she seems to move her tail to the right a few inches each time the left rear leg strikes the ground. Kind of an "ouchy" movement.

I thought I noticed the tail hitch, too! He's a real bull in a china shop... Doesn't actually show a reaction to much of anything...

Trying to recall my one-day physio course... A tail twisted to the right would indicate a counter balance to the left side...? Just scrolled up. That's what you noticed too. That could easily develop from years of working with an imbanced rider, yes? My right hip is often much lower than my left... I often have to correct myself by consciencesly shifting and sitting HARD through my left seat bone. It's the only way I can get his righ lead, in fact (which did not happen in this video). I'm working with an Osteopath to correct all of my imbalances. I will give him time and patience, work specifically on righting myself for him.

I have not had a soundness test done, as I just wasn't sure there was anything there, yet. There is often shenanigans between him and the other young boys in the herd. It's not unusual for someone to come up muscle-sore from a kick, now & then. Herd life of recreational horses... Very well-rounded intellect and well maintained physical fitness over all, even if it means the odd less desireable encounter. ;p

Lift your hands/wrists and bring them a bit closer together. It looks like you're kind of 'bracing' in some shots.

That horse sure is purdy~
