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.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

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.
