Please critique away…Like the horse but was told he might be off a tad in his right shoulder, maybe saddle issue or a glitch allowed by rider, don't know. Would definitely be vetted but a glitch probably wouldn't be found.

At the 1:08 mark is the only time they show him turning and I could see him toss is head a couple times in that turn. Could be nothing, could be a sign he's got an issue.

The horse is intermittently NQR (Not Quite Right). I don't see anything clearly but I'm not lameness expert, either. The best way to get a clear picture would be a proper lameness evaluation by a qualified vet.

He walks like one who has come off pads and has a sore tendon. Give it a week to 10 days and if he still has that hesitance on the right then there is likely an issue. IMO

I can see the "hitch" in his right shoulder when he's in his intermediate gait.

I'm not sure the head toss is anything more than the rider having too tight a rein when he asked for the turn.

I would want to know the PPE vet says about the right shoulder or it could even be saddle fit that has caused soreness and maybe he needs a chiropractor.

Orrrr maybe the soreness is down in the hoof but there's a hitch in the right front coming from somewhere. Just because he sounds to be hittin' a lick solid on all fours, doesn't mean the hoof can't have something going on. Horses being prey animals are very stoic about hiding their hurts

Your right he is not moving correctly. First think I'd check is saddle. That looks like(hard to tell for sure) a rigid tree saddle without adequate clearance for the withers and no flex in the front panels for his shoulders.

Can a horse have a glitch in their stride due to being out of shape?
