From what you have shown, which is almost only solid trotting, I can say "not bad!"
You are pretty solid and post nicely. You would be best to roll your pelvis a bit more under you (tipping the pubic bone more forward, less downward onto the saddle) . You have too much roll in yoiur lower back. Your left leg is really solid , but the right is a wee bit more forward and rolled out overly much. Minor things.
I think you have a lot of potential and the horse seems a pretty good match. At the brief canter shot, it looked like you got caught be surprise and kind of shut him down all of a sudden, but not totally sure on that because it was such a brief shot.
Thank you sooooo much, you are the first person to give critiques but be nice at the same time. I will definitely take your advice into consideration. Haha and for the canter shot, he went into a canter when I didn't ask him to so I brought him back down. But I can definitely tell you honestly that his canter is amazing! And I put the special effects in because it was supposed to be a fun YouTube video lol and thank you soo much for telling me Finn is a good match, most people think he is too much for me....sooo thanx and the reason for the lack of transitions and gaits is mainly because it was a test ride and I just wanted to take it slow and get used to him. :)
Thank you again!!!
