    Please judge both my horse and I (flat work)

    Hey there! This is Pete (15.3 hand 4 y/o paint/QH) and me from earlier today. Can you please judge both his movement and my seat?

    Okay so I do realize there are things I need to work on (like keeping my heels down, sitting back, arching up and no slumping my shoulders) however I mainly did this so I could see what everyone thinks of his movement. I'm very curious to get other people's opinions. Thank you in advance! :)
    Also yes I do realize the canter departure was bad but trust me, it's way better than it used to be. He's very green and he's still learning how to do some things. He's only been under saddle for about 8 months, so I believe he's doing extremely well.

    He's a very nice horse. I like his headset in the trot. But in the canter he seems a little weird in the hind. Maybe a little stiff looking? He is a little fast as well in the canter. That's just what my opinion is.

    I think you are doing fairly well. Your self assessment is pretty accurate. Although "arching up" is never desireable. Your horse looks reasonably comfortable and easy going. Nice work.
