He's lovely, I think he has a ton of potential. Yes, I think he's on the forehand, but you can work with that: lots of transitions, serpentines, leg-yielding, to help get him more "up." I love his easy-going manner! But in his case, I wouldn't make things easy! No more two-circles the same size in a row; mix it up a lot and get him thinking, don't let him know what's coming, get him really listening to you.

To get more impulsion, rythmically squeez your legs when he is cantering and then add some bit to make him keep the speed but up the energy. Also raise your hands a little bit to help with lightening of the forehand.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Nice conformation and nice body. I think he will do well but if you are going to want to show him with the western saddle I really think that you should work him in it as well. I have done all sorts of english and western riding and showing and know that if you don't work them in what you are going to show them in then you confuse the horse.

When I see a horse, it's like seeing my spirit freed.

I actually want to show him hunt seat, maybe do a little western.

Okay, so I'm thinking about taking him to his first AQHA show next winter. It'll be a lot of hard work until then but I really think he can do it! What do you guys think? Should I go for it?
Another question...this is my last year as a youth and my membership expires in September. What do I do if I want to show in December?

Maybe next week I can get another video of me riding him, and I'll post it here.

Your age as of January 1 determines your age for the year. If you are a youth on January 1, you will be a youth all year and will need to renew your card as such.

I know you don't want to hear it, but you really should put some stock into finding a trainer to help you. You said that the person you bought him from is a trainer, so why not start there? At least they could give you some names of people who could work with you. You are in KY, there are trainers, I promise you that.
