    I shall check out your post. Today is the first hot day we have had! Unlike the rest of the USA, our corner (NW) is very cool and wet this year. Today was lovely!

    Sounds like you have a really good plan with him and are riding him really aware of his mind and movement. Yes, the weather sucks, here too. Very windy today. There will be aton of trees down in the park tomorrow. I am NOT a jumper, so we just step over. I don't like jumping something immobile like a big tree. with heavy rains and high winds, a lot of trees uproot and fall over.
    The circle of life.

    Gotta go out now. talk another time.

    I wouldn't worry about diagonals. It really ins't a big deal. You could even sit the trot a few strides if you need to get more leg on him.
    He did trot out a bit better right at the end of the clip. YOu onlye went left, tho.
    It's been awhile since he was ridden? He falls in on his left shoulder, but the ground is thick and muddy and if it's been awhile that he hasn't been ridden, then his balance isn't strong.
    I do well staying over him as he drifts left right and slows suddenly. I know how hard that is, especially if it catches you when you are in the up part of the rising trot.

    Oh, I beleive it. Our weather is much like yours; gray a lot.
    Really work on being nice and easy when he is away from the gate and work him harder near the gate.
    If you are going down the long side and he wants to turn to the inside so that he can cirlce back to the gate, one idea (might work) is to let him turn but keep him turning so that he actually circles fully and ends up back on the "rail" heading the same direction he was going when he insisted on turning around. The offer him the choice to forward again. Repeat and repeat,and if you can make him trot around, even better, and walk down long side (away from gate). If he gets away from you, stick to walk. The idea is that he will figure out that going straight is LESS work unlitmately.

    So the bay is Braken and the dark almost black one is Jay? and he's the Lame one?
    You did a good job riding him in that dark field. Looks like it has been harrowed and was growing hay or wheat?

    He is wanting to go back to the gate, rigtht? Turn away from the gate before he starts to really feel stuck to it mentally. when he is going away from the gate, pet him and give him loose rein. Stop him , away from the gate and let him stand, if he will.
    You ride quite nicely.

    I love that "ya Gob****e" I know what you are saying, but some Yanks would not.
    Did you say Bracken was Lame? I doubt it.
    Lovely pasture they have. Get another horse. Horse's are usually LESS buddy sour in a "herd" than in a duo.
    Our horses are way too lazy to run around like that.
