So in the first video I see a loose rein and a pony that is counter bending from time to time. I would get a feel on the pony's mouth and get him to bend around your leg. The first outside line he breaks to a trot which tells me that you need to keep your leg on, and keep a feel on him so that he doesn't feel like he's been dropped. I can appreciate that he has a nice even canter, but I personally would ride him up a little to get a more appropriate distance... As I noticed that you tend to chip in quite a bit. All in all I see a nice, polite horse and an equally lovely little rider. The pony in your first video looks like a great confidence builder too, which I love!
Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.
