she's looking really improved! She is definitely 4 beating...in and out here and there, but she is popping off the front end because her rear is engaged, and you can see that she is learning that it is no negotiation with you in the saddle, she must 4 beat, nice progress!
Her canter is looking pretty good -a little fast, but I assume that is not a bad thing for you as your are a CT rider correct? In show they like it as slow as possible, but its definitely got potential to be really nice...to get more of that rocking chair canter that TWH is famous for, do some circle cantering and also stop her while cantering and back her up. My trainer has been having us do that with our horses and we've had good results.
