Exclamation Me and Frankie Trotting

Hi! Me and Frankie have been working on a long and low headset. He is a national show horse and naturally has a very high headset. Here's the website to watch the video:

You can compare my other video if you click on my youtube url. You can critique me if you'd like but mostly him :) THANKS!!

i think you two look great. the one thing i would say is take it easy on your posting it looks like your forcing yourself out of the saddle! good conformation though!

ugh I would kill for Duchess to be able to have such a smooth and collected trot. You two look really nice and relaxed.

I think you two look good! He seems very relaxed and at ease. Keep up the good work!

Love your horse, what a cutie. You guys aren't moving forward whatsoever but he has so much movement in his gait, he still manages to track up

You 2 are cute!

He's behind your leg big time, but his head is just right. The poll should be the highest point. You want to get it lower? If you just mean you want to drive him more into the bit, get his legs moving. He'll round up nicely into the bit and chew those reins right out of your hands. Pretty horse. Looks like a very nice mover.
