Clearly tossing in this instance, unrelated to gait. I'm assuming her dental is up to date and the bit is one she likes. She's certainly light in the mouth.
History on this mare..?
I get the sense she's used to clear, concisive work, rather than the aimless distracted nonsense in this vid. I think she's looking for the plan and actually likes to work. I see strong dressage values to her way of going around.

Sorry, English isn't my first language, and both words seem to describe the same thing.
Only known history: original owner passed away, she was passed on to a woman who sent her to the current caretaker for 30 days of training, with the request that she be "fixed" in that time (she was becoming dangerously pushy with the person who inherited her). The trainer said it would take more time, and the first person relinquished ownership to the trainer. Trainer (person in the videos) wants to find her a good home, and says she has made huge progress since she first met her, and is in fact a very sweet mare who enjoys attention and work.
