I did not intend to post anything for critique, though I have been critiquing others and thought I would post just for the fun of it. The horse is not mine, is 3 yrs old (off the track but not raced). I starting training him in May of this year; he is a super smart little guy and a very quick learner.
Recently, we have been working on accepting the bridle and moving forward. We also need work on our transitions... in terms of keeping in frame and not falling apart (especially in downward transitions). Also, I know we need to work on keeping impulsion in our turns/corners. I pretty much know what we still need to work on, but am interested to hear other's feedback regardless. Please critique both horse and rider, but please keep in mind his age in doing so.
These videos are a few weeks old, meaning that the gap in time has left room for him to have improved. These videos do not show his best, but portray a good idea of where he is in his training. We are also working on being able to go from a canter to a nice trot instead of getting excited and anticipating another canter cue again!
Canter #1 (in this video he shows as better on the left than the right; he has improved on that since)-
