Are you sure that horse isn't off? The hind end looked funny, kind of hopping at first, which looked like a horse with maybe a sore hip or ?

She's not off she does somethings go bouncy in canter definitely sound as a pound she is naturally high stepping through her hind in trot..

I agree with tinylily.
She looks incredibly uncomfortable in the hind...
And it's not just a "high-stepping" trait.

I agree, something looks off behind. She also looks unbalanced and inconsistant in her gaits. I would get her looked at by a vet.

To me it just looks like Steff was holding her back too much (hence her sister shouting forwards).

Just looks like her hind leg is a bit long for the rest of her body :p

Please don't let your friendship get in the way of seeing something that is off. I agree, she looks unbalanced through turns, a horse shouldn't crossfire to get around corners like that.

To me, the horse looks to have a physical problem.

I agree! What I am seeing is not a lameness on the legs, but more likely a spinal soreness. Hind lead swapping, haunch "hopping" can definitely be signs.

I don't know the horse's jump history, but before I jump as high as you are doing, I do long months of back conditioning to make sure the muscles along the spine and pelvis are fit enough to take it.

After I watched the video I went and watched some of your other videos, and even though she was a little "off" then it has gotten much worse, so I don't think its her being "bouncy" and "high stepping". She needs to be examined by a vet. She looks like it hurts to put weight on it and is trying to hurry up and get it off of there and kinda hops.
