    I agree. Problems with the horse under saddle stem from the riders fault. If you don't want us to critique the rider as well, then it will very difficult for you to get a good critique on the horse.. especially since he may be 10x better with a different rider.

    The rider really needs to anticipate when he is going to break down into a trot and keep him going.

    Okay, i'm going to try to answer everyone lol.

    First off, regarding the rider, I said please don't critique her because she is pretty in-experienced. She does great on her horse, but he is a easier going that my speed deamon. I wanted yall to try to look at doc as a horse. Sorry if you couldn't help. I will have better videos soon.

    Myboydoc- that's pretty funny. Doc's show name is We Control The Chaos. :)

    Sonny- the reason he jumped late/early a few times is because abbey (the rider) cued him wrong. He listens very well to leg cues approaching the jump. It's a lot different with me on his back. He tosses his head because he his bored. Lol.

    Farmpony- thank you veryyyy much. :) he is a horse, barely 15'3. I plan to do hunters with him when the season starts back up. I did a lot of jumpers locally and he really proved himself in the ring. (i wish I had pics but my camera broke :( ) It was fun to see other kids on their big jumpers being out jumped by my little guy :)

    We understand that you want the horse not the rider critiqued, but when a horse is being ridden it's difficult to tell how much of the horse's movement and way of going is himself and how much is the rider's direction (or lack of).

    The only thing that jumps out at me is it looks like he is bracing against the bit. His bracing and head slinging may be a teeth problem and if not, you might want to try some excercises to get him more supple. Bending and teaching flexion at the poll will help his appearance under saddle alot.

    SUPPOSEDLY...if you know what you are looking for in a horse, then how it's ridden doesnt matter when criticing movement and conformation.... That being said... I probably don't know what I'm doing because I have a hard time too... But I still think that horse is sweet and honost and probably very cute in a larger ring where balance isn't a concern, as he travels on his front end....
