*VIDEOS* AQHA mare and gelding. Tell me what you think!!!

For anyone who doesn't already know: this is my AQHA 15 year old gelding (KC) out of Zip Like This. Ive had him only about 10 months. When i got him he hadn't been messed with for about 10 months.... well he doesn't get many vacations living with me... he proly thinks im a slave-driver :roll: haha. well.. he was Horrible at showmanship when i got him but ive been consistent with him so tell me what you think about him on his:

How he works on Showmanship (hes still "perfecting" his pivot, hes been working on in about 3 months or so)

Scooter is the other horse on there: shes a 19 year old AQHA mare (and in heat in the vid ) you can comment about her too!

I think the showmanship looks very promising!
Only suggestion would be to make sure you can get him to lead off a little better with the jog. I know it's western showmanship, but a lot of judges prefer to see your horse with a little more life, especially in hand. If both of you move forward more, it would be excellent.

He's very even with his movements, and I like the way he backs, but again, many classes are lost because the horse backs too hesitantly. Its great to show the judge how willing your horse is to back up.

Like I said though, I think everything flows together very well indeed. It's not jerky or forceful at all. You've done a great job!

Thanks so much for the suggestion. ill try to put some more life into him... which wont be hard since he was originally a contest horse. He can extend nice sometimes so we'll work toward that.
Thanks again.
