    I can't be too sure either but bit straight at the hocks, however no horse is perfect and I can sit and critique plenty wrong with my pony as well.

    It's just too grainy to see that well and I gave up after about a minute sorry.

    I don't see anything off in the fore, but I do notice that she drops her right hip and something seems off in the right hind. She looks like she really needs some chiro work.

    Zzzzzzzz. SUre looks like the safe type! Unlikely to bolt! I thought there was something "off" with the gait, but it is SO hard to see on this video, plus the actual gait is SOOOOOO slow.

    Typical for a western pleasure horse, this horse doesn't have much impulsion and goes around heavy on the forehand and in a false frame.As far as soundness goes I don't see much wrong with the horse. I think it's hard for a horse to move that slow and keep a good cadence if it's not collected pretty well.

    I would say that the OP is quite brave to post a video of (presumably) herself and her horse on a anonymous forum and ask anonymous people to give opinions of the horse.

    Rope walking on front, almost interfering in back. Maybe fixable with shoeing

    Left hind is short-stepping, maybe fixable with chiropractor

    Very nice horse, not my style but good-looking and broke

    The horse is walking laterally like a twh yet breaks into a seemingly nice jog. At times his back is swinging nicely.

    Ummm....
    I'm from England, so have never seen a 'trail' horse..?
    To me it looks lame in its left hind, not massively but it's off. It also can't canter, from what I could see it looked like it was cantering with it's front legs bt trotting with its back.
    Horse needs physio and possibly a switch to an english saddle so you can get off it's back when it's trotting to make it more comfortable? Although I haven't got a clue what i'm talking about when it comes to western riding/saddles.

    Def something of with the back end.
    Also not the best headset, keeps its head low for the most part but kneck looked arced a bit from time to time. Has the makings of a nice horse but def would have that back end looked at, it almost looks like the horse it not keeping itself picked up...like its not collected in the hind ends.
    Put I am no pro when it comes to WP, just has the honor to show some nice ones that's all :)
