Please keep us posted...
He is presumably seven, his previous owners had a very limited history when they bought him and had to use his teeth as an indicator. They past on everything they knew.

I got a new instructor today and she had a look.
He actually rode almost well today! (only tripped maybe four times which is a giant improvement) We are keeping him really engaged like some of the posters on here said to do, also we are working with lots of trotting poles, I think he also needed some time to adjust from having his over grown feet trimmed, and to adjust to the footing in the arena and to adjust to the amount of exercise being asked for.
He only really tripped when he spooked. ALSO he went for a good gallop in his pasture after we put him back, this is the first time he has felt comfortable enough on his feet to really move! I think we are really getting somewhere!
Thanks for everyone's suggestions I considered all of them and used most of them. You guys really helped.

He may just being lazy and not picking his feet up, if he hasnt been ridden in so long, it may just take time to work out his balance and get use of a saddle and rider on him

stumble, stumbling, trip, tripping
