    Horse in canter?


    I was wondering if you guys could take a look at my horses stride here. I'll take more pictures during the week, but he has a very odd 'feel' to him when i'm cantering him. I caught this particular pic and is it just me or does it look like he's drooping his shoulders further forward to avoid the saddle? (or is it just a normal stride, I might be going crazy!!)

    Thank you!!!

    If you could... video would be much better to discern an 'odd gait' - for me, it's hard to tell too much from that photo - sorry :(

    Yes, same. A video would be very helpful.

    But if he feels off, he probably is.
