trained to mirror?

Yesterday I noticed that Wiski was mirroring me... We were in the arena facing each other, and when I'd shuffle my feet one step to the left, he'd mirror me! Same with the right. So I went back and forth kind of swaying (like slow dancing LOL) and he did the exact same thing stepping how I stepped with his front feet. So I walked right, he mirrored. I went left, he did the same... it was strange. Do you think he was trained to do this or is it something he probably just thought was fun?

I think he might have been trained for fun. Dogs are often trained to do it for Freestyle.

Is he bred to be a cutting or working cow horse?

He was a wild caught nevada range mustang... so I doubt it

Mine does that I've never trained him to do it or anything, he just mimics me.
