Am I the only one that is a bit concerned that none of the videos of Mavis had her cantering? Have you seen her canter? She is very cute though and I like her trot.

I really really like Mavis. Good luck!

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

Lyric doesn't look too into it. He's gorgeous, but it looks like you're trying harder than him.

Mavis, however, looks much more excited to be training. (:

The difference between the two, may be that Lyric has been training longer, and he's just more relaxed, but I doubt it, because Mavis looks relaxed as well.

Lyric has very long and beautiful strides. I'm impressed.

And Mavis's trot is wonderful!

Mavis, Mavis, Mavis!

Lyric is just... blahh to me. Maybe it's the way she's being ridden, but I'm not impressed at all.

Mavis on the other hand looks like she has lots of potential. She looks like she's naturally using lots of her back when she's trotting, so if you were to actually ASK her to lift her back I'm sure she'd be gorgeous. Love that canter too.
