    It may just be my imagination, but he looks like he's swinging his back legs round instead of through and under him. Its kinda like what my dad does when he walks and he has arthritis in his hip so perhaps its arthritis/pain in his hip or stifle.

    Also you say he can gallop, but not canter. If your lameness guy says he isn't lame (although gut feeling says he is :/ ) have you tried taking him somewhere where he can gallop in a straight line, and you gradually slow the pace until its a (fast) canter? Whats his history? If he was used in a cart, canter would have resulted in being told off, and being gaited means a double whammy against canter. Like others said, he may lack the ability to canter, or it has been 'trained' out of him

When they are driving to the outside the leg is taking a shorter step and they will look lame. He needs to bend and use both hind legs the same length of stride.

    I think he needs some training and getting him collected and balanced. Any classical training would help but since he is gaited I like Larry Whitesells videos. Start with the ground ones.

    It was a women that looked at him.
    She kept changing her mind on what is wrong. If I do that, he will switch his legs in the back even more :(

    He sat in the pasture for about 10 years of his life, and only did trail riding.
