Short Stride- Uncomfortable or in Pain? videos included

i didn't really know where to put this, so I chose critique because it's kinda critiquing? (if anyone has a better place to post it, let me know!)

So my horse has a really lope/canter stride. (I'm going to call it canter since I'm talking about technical things). To me, it's like he is in pain which leads me to the fact that he has been diagnosed, without x-rays, with navicular disease. Navicular, to my knowledge, is like arthritis in the foot. He's currently on medicine with special shoes and he doesn't limp anymore. We found this out last summer by the way.

I can't really remember how he loped before being diagnosed, and of course I cannot find ONE video of him loping before last summer. So, I'm stuck figuring out if he has always loped like this and I'm just taking notice or if something has changed in the past year. So I have three videos to show you. I've never uploaded a picture, much less a video so let's see how this goes.

I can't get the videos to load, so never mind i guess? If anyone has any idea without seeing the videos let me know. If you're really interested or would so kind as to be interested, you can private message me.

I'm really at a loss as to what to do because he seems so uncomfortable when loping.

No link for the video.

If you are trying to load it from Photobucket, copy and paste the URL straight into the message, you will see that as the start of the link it says https remove the S and it will show in the post.

Try youtube, you can un-link it later so that it's coming up as private.
