As a sales video I find the outside sounds of wind,airplane noise etc very distracting{had to turn my sound off}.Also it is jumpy & unsteady all things unflattering to horse. Didn't mind the horse under saddle has a good start & movement didn't seem bad despite the unsteadiness of the footage. Horse needs alot of work at showmanship yet thoughHe wasn't responding very well to cues & pulling his head away from handler...

Is this a horse you are looking at buying or one you are wanting to sell? Or just some random horse??

I , too, want to know if you are selling or buying this horse. He is a lovely horse and for WP moves quite nicely, IMO. I like him alot. I agree that the showmanship portion is not as good, and I might leave it off if I were posting him for sale.

From a 4-h perspective: the showmanship part actually doesn't bother me, as it shows a horse who is willing, and with frequent (daily) practice would do quite well. I think the riding portion shows a horse who would do well in riding for 4-h, though not place at the top. He tosses his head in the canter transition, and I believe you only showed trot to canter, not walk to canter, which is very important. Also, if you were asked in a class to pivot under saddle, you would be marked down for having to open your hands so wide to get the pivot. All in all, a nice horse with a lot of potential in the 4-h arena.

I don't know allot about showing horses and don't pretend to. However there were times this horse seems to be moving smoothly and then at other times he seems to be tripping over himself. Pretty horse. Good luck and God bless, Peg
