This picture was his biggest possible trot last year, and now that is a more regular trot for him. I'm looking forward to seeing how his trot continues to improve as his hind end gets stronger. I think I might compile a slomo progression video of trot clips, the things equestrians think are cool. Things I do to keep him from just rushing include using my leg like a big hug instead of kicking, pushing my hands towards his mouth so that he can stretch over his topline and cover the ground with longer steps, many transitions with in the trot to help him keep regaining his balance, etc.
