Horse in canter?

Hello

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.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
