That's right, and the important part is to look at what the rider is doing. His hands are heavy, gripping, and low. His seat is flopping and he is hulked over the front of the horse. The horse, a reflection of the rider, tucks his neck and leans onto his front end. They are both heavy on the front. Then, in the correct, the weight changes. The rider is more in his seat and the horse transfers some of the weight back onto his hind, the rider's hands soften and thus the horse softens its neck and reaches for the contact.

Lucky! Is it on his dam's or sire's side? Excuse my terminology if that's incorrect, can't remember if line only applies to the sire or to both Do you see any striking similarities between your guy and Ahlerich?

Ahlerich is by a TB stallion and a "D" line Hanoverian. This is the same "D" line that Cindy Ishoy's horse Dynasty rode to bronze Olympic medal in 88. My boy carries this line through his sire.

My guy doesn't really look like either of them but is typical of this line, trainable, not big on extensions but super on collection. This line also has a larger percentage of bay (usually dark) and grey with a scattering of chestnuts and carries the sabino gene.
