Wow! I see this video so differently even watching it again now, after everyone's comments have had time to sink in further!...amazing what a small amount of education and instruction can do for one's "vision".
Watching it, I do see a green horse, learning a lot at one time time, and focusing hard on such (what I previously, erroneously saw as a possible "lackluster" way of going...)
And I do see what NBEventer just was saying...the rider almost working really hard to HELP this boy go easier...he's taking the jumps oddly, "green-ly" as I can now see; and it literally does look like the rider is almost helping him to get over the jumps with more freedom, or more clarity of movement...that's a terrible description on my part, I know...but in my brain it makes perfect sense!
I really, really like this horse...and he's simply adorable aside from his obviously very likely wonderful temperament! :0)
