He's feeling he's mr. smarty pants and that's often when the tail flies like a flag.

Holy suspension in that stallion! O_o

Kenzie tries holding her tail up like an Arabian when she's goofing off in the pasture, but all she succeeds in doing is farting a bit and looking like a camel with a broom stick up its butt. LOL

I wouldn't put too much stock in the "imitating" theory. My Peruvians will flag their tails and do a nice suspended trot when they get excited and they've never been around any other breed.

He is flagging because he feels good and is showing out.

All horses will do it if they are of a mind to.

And it does not mess up the gait in the slightest.

Horses make me a better person.

I have seen ponies, oldenburgs, field accidents, Latvian horses, all kinds of german warmbloods - all will flag their tails, to a bouncy happy trot or canter around the place, show fantastic extended trot etc... but you never see that under the saddle. they look funny like that, but also show the potential of the movement. it is useful to see what the youngsters can do and what they might be able to do under saddle later.
