His jog is good. Could afford to be a bit more slow and patient..But jog overall is good. Lope, a little bit fast. I understand completely though, youngsters are at that learning stage, keep doing what your doing, with the half halts and that good stuff:)

It looks to me like at the canter he is cross cantering, cantering up front and troting in the back. Could be wrong of course.....

he is trotting in the back only in that one direction... Do I just need to get him moving up underneath himself?

yes even though his head and neck are collected his legs are not. Try some longing with side rein work...this worked for me.

OK, Farmpony, I'm sitting here reading through these critiques and the only thing that comes to me is ...HE'S ONLY TWO!!!!!!!!! He is doing FAR more than any two year old I have seen! You have done an excellent job with him. Some of the things people are seeing is because of maturity ( of your horse that is!). This is by far the best looking two year old I have seen!

As for you, if anyone has never ridden a baby before (that's what I call my young, greenbroke horses) they wol dnot understand the exaggerated movement you are doing. This HAS to be done for the horse to understand what's going on on his back...otherwise they tend to flip out! :)

my sister, jan cannizzaro, won the apha world show on jets rookie cowboy in western pleasure, in the 2 year old class! Two year old can perform this just fine. Farmpony you are well on your way to success with him! It will not take much in getting him where he needs to be a very successful western pleasure horse. If you have been the only one training him then you have done a terriffic job thus far! Keep up the good work!!!

Thanks Ahearn and Tbenitz! You guys just made my day! But I can't take full credit.. I do have a trainer, we haul out for lessons once a week...

I'm trying to slow down for the winter and try to give him a little break because I'm afraid I'll sour him if I do too much too soon... But I don't want to screw up by giving him a break either... OH THE STRESS OF IT ALL!

I'll post another video in a month or so.......

He looks great. A little behind the vertical and carries his head a bit too low (in my opinion). I prefer a really level topline where you could set a board down his back and have it set level from poll to withers to hip. His problem with the canter to the left may work itself out in time. He is still young and may not be entirely comfortable under saddle yet. He also may not have the muscling needed to maintain a smooth canter. With work, time, and experience you will have a fantastic horse. He's sooo beautiful.

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/

SMROBS, well said. She's got a really great horse on her hands...Do you know how much I'd pay for that horse? :)

Are you riding in a curb and draw reins?
