how good does my boy move?

I got some awesome motion photos of Sonny when I was lunging him and when my best friend was riding him. Also got some good videos.
I can do critiquing if the horse is standing still and whatnot, but know absolutely NOTHING when it comes to how a horse moves haha. Was hoping someone might be able to let me know how Sonny does when he's actually moving haha.

I won't give a critique BUT I think I think you really need to push your horse forward when trotting (thats the only video I had time to watch). Your horse will track up and will make it easier for everyone to post their opinion

I agree. He has very little impulsion in the trot so its hard to say much about it.

I did notice though that he seemed to be stepping short on his inside front leg. Don't know if it was anything or not but I did notice it.

He seems to move ok but it would be way easier to tell if he had some impulsion and head set

"I whisper but my horse doesnt listen...So I yell!!...He still doesnt listen"

that was my friend riding him....I will try to get videos of myself riding him when he has a good heat set.

Jazzy, what do you mean by stepping short?

also if this makes any difference, the arena is padded with dirt like material...and not all of it is on one level...there are some parts that are higher and lower than the rest

In almost all your pictures he is moving downhill. He looks like he has a very rough stride to him. Tho I can't view videos. I can only see pictures. He is built downhill tho.

his strides aren't that rough really. Would it be better if I put the videos on youtube? Could you view them then?
He does look downhill in the pictures...and definitely in the first, but when I watch him while lunging or someone else riding him he doesn't appear to be. It might just be that I'm not catching it though
