I don't have a video camera :(. But, I'll ask one of my friends to take theirs the last weekend of this month when we go on our next group ride. We worked with him and some other horses including 2 that he would really act up with if they went to pass him, or going faster than him. Then 1 that we've ridden with before that had the habit of fast gaiting up behind him. All he would lose his mind with and start dancing sideways. He kept a cool collected head with all.
As far as riding without the spurs, I also found out that the lady who raised him, and had him until he was 8, wore spurs with him every time she rode him. The lady I bought him from said that she wore them one time in the riding ring, and just didn't feel right using them. BUT, she only rode him with either one or two horses at a time. Never in a big group. It's amazing the turn around he made with just letting him know that the spurs were there!!!
