I noticed something, but might be my eyes. It looks like you are collapsing through the left hand side of your body. At least, your shoulder looks lower a lot of the time to me.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Will agree with the others on all points. Your horse definately needs to go forward more, there is no over tracking in the walk. You have lovely hands and will get the contact in time - you'll know when you do as your horse will drop into an outline. In your rising trot try to keep your feet back a little more and to rise from your knees, try not to push off your feet, any weight needs to be down the back of your leg.
Thank you so much Tnavas! :) I will definitely work on it. It's hard to get him any higher than a 'grandpa walk' which is strange because you'd think with how he was on the ground I'd be having to slow him down the entire time. It'd help to ride with a whip, but I am ever so clumsy with one.. whack myself in the face, or whatnot. For now I'll just work with what I've got and in time, he'll become more forward as we take more lessons and I get more comfortable!

Again, thanks for looking it over!
