What type of class was this? I notice he is probably a Jr. Horse since you are riding in a snaffle and two handed and the other riders were riding with a shanked bit..just curious :)
He's a 5 yr old so I felt like I could cheat a bit using the snaffle. This class was open to all age horses, the riders needed to be in the "Sr." age group. All my training at this point is now done in a spoon bit so we can transition to showing one-handed next year.
I do like his movement & the way he carries himself better than the other horses in the video. The big black mare won the class (rider with white shirt). I think my major downfall in this class was the consistency. The black mare is so spot on anytime you look at her, she's hard to beat because of it even though she is not a superior mover. So I hope that I have a consistent & superior mover when I'm finished with my horse!
