Exclamation Standardbred Canter Critique *VIDEO*

Please critique my standardbred. I'm teaching him to canter. This was int he beginning, I was trying to get a canter from walk transition. This was his first attempt but he took a few trot steps.
Anyway, this was the day I didn't have my riser pad, which alters his saddle fit, so that is why my leg is far foward in a lot of areas and moments. But don't worry, I can bring my leg back with the riser pad when the saddle fit is proper

Anyways, please critique Dusty

16.3hh standardbred ex trotter


Please critique his movement. He only can canter on this lead so far, but within the next month he should be consistent on the other lead as well. I want to put him in the jumpers, but I want to know about maybe hunters. I know he's a bit fast, however please critique his

Movement
Muscle Build
Any conformation


Thanks

Ok, I am going to be of no help. I checked it out because I love SBs. Also, now that I've seen, you must get the second canter shot cropped and framed. Its an awesome shot!

The first thing that I notice is that when he jumps, he is hanging one leg. IDK if that is the correct term but he seems to have one knee a lot lower over the jumps and doesn't seem to know to pick them up together yet. He is definitely not afraid to reach under himself with his back legs, is he? LOL. Most of what I have experience with is the stock type horses (non-gaited) so I won't critique his movement except to say that his lope just looks odd. Now before you start thinking I mean that in a bad way, I am used to seeing QH, TB, Mustangs, etc. He just that he moves different than horses I am used to seeing. He seems to lope really smooth and will certainly cover the ground. :) I would like to see him more collected and supple to bit pressure but that will come with time. Get the impulsion down and you can collect it later. He looks really good. Congrats. He is a beautiful boy.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks a lot
I don't take offense at all. He is an ex trotter, and many standardbreds brought off the track never actually learn to canter, it takes training. As for his jumping, He does have a tendency to do that with his leg, but he usually gets a nice bascule and tucks his back legs just fine. One reason his leg may be hanging is because these jumps were taken from the trot and not the canter

Ah, that explains it. You have done very well and should be proud. He is a beauty and seems really sweet.

Thankyou VERY much. I had to do it all on my own, never had a trainer, I plan to go into horse training myself, so thanks for the compliment

My friend has an ex-trotter, and hers has that super-pony jump too! Haha! Keep up the good work :)

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.
