His lope is not there yet. What I should have been doing is not focusing on his speed but focusing on impulsion and forward movement. Without that, you have a broken down trope looking thing, it's slow, but it's ugly and as many pointed out, it's miserable to sit.
Just skip past the showmanship stuff. The good part starts at 1:08. This was when I first started doing QH shows and I had NO idea that SLOW meant still going FORWARD. I was such an ig-nent cuss.
