Sheesh!! You could be a runway model!

Do you have any vids of you two schooling on the flat?

No, I don't think I do. His extended trot is to die for, though. We do most of our schooling out in a huge 500-acre grass field behind our property (park-owned, they mow it and we're the only ones who ever use it....lol), and my mom's down with foot surgery, so I'm usually riding on my own with no one to video.

In that huge open area, he comes willingly onto the bit and is usually easier to push into a frame because of all the forward energy he has.

My horse is a lot like that as well. He goes pretty well on the flat... reaching nicely for the bit. However, when we jump around he will occasionally get heavy on the forehand and/or laying on my hands. From time to time I realize he's doing it and I just give him a little lift and squeeze him back up. Jumping takes a lot of thought and awareness... so I think it's easier than most would think, to end up dropping your horse while on course.

This is me schooling him last summer, you can see he's reaching nicely for the bit and stretching out:

What I think would help you is to get ^^ that trot and then collect it and go do the exercise your trainer wanted you to do so you get a horse that is using itself properly. In the video it looked like you went from walk to tiny hollow trot, if that makes sense.
