Is my pony lame?


Need some advice. Some say, that my pony is lame, and some say, he isnt. What do you think?

I videod my horse on a quite slippery surface, because I hadnt any other choice, so sorry about that.

4 videos, trot and canter.

I'm not great at spotting lameness but looks fine in trot and maybe disunited at one point in canter.

What breed is this pony? I think I see a head bob at the trot. I can't tell in the canter as my computer isn't letting the video stream very well.

I don't see any lameness at the trot or canter. I watched the videos a couple of time couldnt see anything wrong with your pony. Pony is a real cutie.

He looked like he might have been limping a very little bit but that could just be because of the mud

Looks like he stumbled a bit because of the muddy, uneven ground, but he doesn't look lame.

I don't see any lameness. He look to be trying to combat the footing, which is why he's not steady.

He is not lame. He did take one bad step in the trotting video, but one bad step is not a lame horse.

Nice looking. Reminds me of a rescue I had years back.

He doesn't look LAME lame, but sore is possible. Also it's hard to tell on uneven ground.
