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?
