Movement Critique (English)

He's just turning 3 in March, and he hasn't had a lot of training as a 2YO, was turned out for more of it. His brain just wants ready to be ridden, so why push him. Turning out was the best thing we did for him, since December he's been very easy to ride (knock on wood). He has his days, but he's much more willing and accepting of everything.

He's going to be an AQHA all around horse.

But I was doing mostly english in the video aha. (even though I'm in a western saddle)

Anyways let me know what you think :) You can critique me if you like too

I think he's lovely for a horse who's barely had any training. Sure doesn't seem that way.
As for english movement? if he picked up that easily on breaking, he won't have issues with english training I'm sure. This video is hard to judge because the gaits you showed us what he will be like with some english riding but you'll want a much more forward set of gaits and more compact and put together, engaged from hind end. If you want to show him, how you ride him will change but as a western pleasure type horse, he looks like he would be a blast to ride.

To me, he looks to stiff and flat in the canter/lope for the English horse. From what I've seen from youtube videos of western pleasure, he will be perfect for that.
