Sometimes he can move so "poetically" across the ground and look so round, soft and balanced.
And then other times it's that short, choppy, dragg'n my toes, unbalanced look. He never can change direction and swap leads and get the back half, never, even when he was in work. We never made it far enough in our dressage to worry about swapping leads so I didn't dwell on it.
