I like your observations here; I will have a look at the video as well. It is worth noting that we were traveling down a small slope; I am not sure why else the saddle would be downhill? Interesting thought.
I had not noticed the hips, and appreciate this as well. First horse I had worked on side passing with, so I was still learning. She was a quick learner!
ETA: Aw shucks, tiny! Thanks :)
