His canter seems smooth, but his trot is rather bumpy. It might be the rider, she was banging on his back quite a bit.

The sitting trot can be sat without all the bouncing on the horse's back. The horse was clearly annoyed with the ears back. Regardless, looks like a nice horse, and if you get along, you'll have to post videos of you guys trick riding :D

I honestly think you need to reconsider trying to use your horse as a trick riding mount. I have seen many trick riding exhibitions over the years. Have you had any instruction, lessons or such with a trainer? Do you know what the "Suicide Drag, Statue of Liberty or Roman Riding" are in detail?

I have no idea what makes a good trick riding horse. That horse strikes me as quite ordinary. Is that a good thing for trick riding?
The rider did not know how to ride well and the horse had a very defensive posture to his back and neck. Judgeing from the shape of the neck, this is a long time habit and will be hard for you to change. however, if you do succeed in getting that horse moving with its' neck down and some engagement of it's hindquarters , you will certainly be doing it a kindness.

(ps I would have chosen the Appalousa)
