Well, first of all I think in general he looks pretty happy! Which is a good thing... Plus you don't look all stressed when he's being a "brat".
But he isn't working under himself. You can even tell just by looking at the hooves. The backhoves should atleast step into the tracks of the front hooves (it would be better if there about half a hoove over the tracks) in a normal working trot.
You have to work more, to get him to track up. Take your legs back a bit and use them ALL THE TIME. You should be giving constant pressur with your legs to make him round up his back, which will make him track up. I don't mean kicking him every few minutes. And I don't mean he has to go faster, you just have to use your legs constantly. It's a bit harder without a saddle, because you don't have the same stability for your legs, but It works fine all the same.
Hmm... hope that kind of made sence...
Good luck!
Oh and if you just want to trail ride and so on, it's not thaat important in my opinion that the horse always tracks up. Since your not fighting and he isn't going against the bit, tensing up his back, everything is just fine!

thanks! He kept trying to buck before that. It kinda makes sense. (ot but after I rode him my dad rode and told me a was a good rider to control him!) so what I need to do is push him with my leg? Is it the same thing as working in a frame?

Yes.. It's all conected. If a horse is "working in a frame" he'll be working under himself and so on and so on it all leads to collection at the very end (boy would I like to say I can truly collect a horse.. will take alot more work till than .) ...
You have to work on inpulsion if you want the horse to work under himself.. so yeah, push with your legs and of course your back (not meaning leaning way back causing the horse to become unbalanced...)
