Gaits

I decided to play around this weekend and lunge Stinker a bit.  Mostly I just wanted to get some walk, trot, canter on video without the saddle as a starting point for comparisons.

Here is the video (it isn't long)

I love his walk and I am holding out hope that his canter will be as good as his walk.  His hind was slipping quite a bit in the canter.  The footing in this ring isn't great, so it might be part of the problem.  Here are gifs for those that don't want to watch the video.

  2. Nice gaits! I was surprised that his canter is so balanced considering that I know you've been struggling with it, looks like your work has been paying off!
