Actually it looks like he's walking (fast) in the first pic.

I meant pacing as in both legs on the same side move in the same direction at the same time.

He knows when you're happy.
He knows when you're confident.
And he always knows when you have carrots.

Walk:

2 legs on the same side move sequentially, but they do not strike at the same time.
A pace is completely different:



See how both legs are striking off at the same time?

Sorry for the thread hijac... your horse is very cute :)

Sorry JDI, I didn't notice them not striking the ground at the same time. I also just wanted to mention (considering I think I came off as being a bit snarky in my last post), that I was just giving a quick explanation as to what pacing was because guesy didn't know.. I didn't mean that he definitely was pacing

Or were those pictures for the same reason? Either way, I was not by any means disagreeing that it was a fast walk or whatever, I just thought I saw differently, posted what I saw, then was corrected. I'm actually very glad you posted those pictures though, I never knew they actually struck the ground at the same time. I love this forum, I learn something new everyday

He knows when you're happy.
He knows when you're confident.
And he always knows when you have carrots.

xxChico, I hope I didn't come off as snarky either :) Just trying to explain my thinking.

Actually I found what you posted very helpful

He knows when you're happy.
He knows when you're confident.
And he always knows when you have carrots.

Ok, I'll crit what I can see. He jumps real nicely, square knees, but he could round better over fences. Try and collect him nicely before the jump to make him round over the jump. His trot looks nice. I can't really crit the others. I know you want him critiqued, but I just wanna say one thing about your position which is that your thumb should be on top of your hands.

You guys look good.

He may be walking in the picture, im not sure. But I just assumed but how akwardly I was sitting, that he was trotting, and I was down in post. So there is a possibility that he is walking lol
