To me he was galloping faster not slower than the example horse and I too agree that that one looks like more of a canter. Yours looks like a lovely hand gallop though. If your looking for something new to work on with it though, might try working on a little bit of collection. Jerry seems to like pointing his nose out, tail up, and enjoy a good run but collection could also help you keep his control and attention when he feels like getting overly excited and bucking.

What's the difference between canter and hand gallop, and between hand gallop and gallop?

A hand gallop is basically a faster canter. It still holds the three beats of the canter, but the horse is more extended and quick. A gallop is a four beat gait that the racehorses use. It is much faster than a canter, and horses can get up to 40-50 miles per hour when galloping.

Boy I wish I could get video of what me and my horse have been doing in the fields. Looking at these videos, guess we've been all out galloping. We've been smoking horses left and right!

OP, you look very secure. I'm thinking the horizon never changes up or down when you're hand galloping which is good. It's fun, isn't it?
