Elana, with this horse and the last one I was looking at, I listened to your advice and criticism even though sometimes I had to grit my teeth and think to myself "put your pride and your "but I want it!" attitude in your pocket, she's right." But right now I could hug you!

PS you should know that I am riding Jax in a side-pull like you suggested, and he has been going beautifully in it! Thank you!

Same here, absolutely nothing wrong!
For his arthritis....movement. Living out 24/7 does wonders for an arthritic horse. My arthritic TB would come out of his stall stiff as a rock and creaking everywhere. Changing his living arrangement to outside 24/7, he was running, bucking, kicking and rearing up to when he died of heart failure at 26

LOL. Out of everything I've tried, he clearly loves the sidepull best. Our riding has been less over the past few days due to the issues in this post, but when we do ride, he is actually more responsive to me, especially in the leg. He also thinks more, which I find interesting! He'll think about the gait/movement patterns I'm asking for and catch on so fast that I have to switch them up.

Again, because of vet things I haven't started lessons with him to work on helping him collect, but I will say that his canter is a lot smoother and feels more collected & relaxed. The woman we will be working with is actually a dressage trainer who does all-around lessons, so I'm hopeful!

The only downside is that he looks awful funny with a western saddle and a pretty little dark brown english-y sidepull!

This is the side pull I have used. Western "device" actually.. and I put my oiled split reins on it even though I was not neck reining.

True dropped fetlocks are accompanied by loss of hock angulation, which your horse clearly does not have. Your horse is fine.

I sure hope that horse in picture was put down looks to be miserable. How sad to see a horse in that state.

Oh my gosh. I have never ever seen this before. This made my stomach turn.

But back on topic ... so glad Elana found this post. Those latest videos of him are nice!
