Critique my hunt seat gelding

Could I get some critiques? (mainly on my horse.) Be honest but please don't be rude :)

Couple notes...he was sore on his right front in this video. Also the space was a tad small, so I didn't get him as extended at the canter as usual because of that.

Nice little guy. He has cute extension and decent movement. Would make a nice local show/ 4h horse. One thing I can point out is his transitions into the lope. Work on getting him to move up into the bit instead of spitting it when he transitions. Also, I would work on a little more hip at the lope.

Why were you riding him if he was off on the front?

He'd be awesome in Western Pleasure.

I agree, he looks like he'd make a good western horse. His gates and transitions look very smooth. (Please wear your helmet!)

Why ride him if he's lame in front?
Does more damage than good.

He looks like a wp horse that you stuck an english saddle on to me (not a bad thing, just an observation)

Your walk-canter transition needs some work, as Delete mentioned try to get him to push forward into it rather than lose the connection right before. Also, at the walk before his neck is over inside bent, but the rest of the body does not follow and he falls out the outside shoulder. Working on stronger more correct transitions will help keep him balanced through the whole thing of it.

Wouldn't be riding him at all if you know he is off though. Could be harmful.

I can't offer much critique. AQHA hunt seat is totally different than regular hunt seat, so I don't really know the fine points. I am more geared towards regular hunt seat and the gaits and movement they do there. Sorry.

I think he would make a cute local open show and 4 H horse. HOWEVER, he looks like a horse who hock injections are wearing off. He isnt driving and appears to be dropping the right hip. With his age, I would expect this. Whats your vet say about him.
