My concern looking at that video clip is she has already lots of wholes in her training. She is resisting the bit showing she doesn't know how to give to bit pressure,lacks suppleness ,also is unsure with moving away from leg pressure.That stuff should have been taught during her ground work before ever getting on her back & yet they are already pushing the canter when she hasn't learned the basics. Asking too much to soon with these youngsters sometimes. Problem is later down the road they start having issues either with soundness{physical or mental breakdown} or with general performance & you end up having to back & try fix those wholes in the training.
Sounds like you will be good for this girl Hope you can get her beginnings on better track & she works out well for you

Using a martingale does not help with collection.....collection comes from the hind quarters being engaged.

Might be but some trainers have used it to help with engaging gears.

Is it just me or did she seem to be stepping short with her right hind?

OP, I wish you luck with her, judging from the video, there are going to be some very serious training issues that will have to be corrected. I hope he didn't do too much damage to her young body, asking her to trot and lope around all strung out and hollow and counterbent like that.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Just have to see what I can do. I've had to retrain a five year old with worse effects but the horse was an a-hole.
