    Critique My Gelding, Please!

    He's an eleven year old Friesian x STB. We're currently working on dressage and walking/trotting barrels. I know he could probably lose some weight, but I has lost quite a bit this summer, and we're going into winter.

    I see a lot of standie influence here, all the way to making funny faces
    Without going into more detail, I.e. Pick him apart, I like him and would LOVE to see him trot

    Funny faces, yes. His trot is hilarious. It's somewhere between a Friensian and a Standy, and it's really hard to sit it. But on the plus side, posting is teaching him rhythm!

    I bet it looks spectacular, but I can imagine the sitting part...both breeds are not really sitting-trot types

    I forgot I had a video of him trotting in the winter time last year. You get somewhat of an idea of what his trot is like, but it's slow because I was avoiding any slipping and falling.

    That video was been taken in Slow Motion.....

    Just sayin'!

    Horse is nice enough. A little camped under behind and his head is klunky. He is a little butt high too.
