Rashid Sept 08 initial shoeing

One of the most striking differences between this initial post shoeing evaluation and the second video below, in my opinion, is the greater willingness of the horse to move forward in the 2nd one.  He appears more energized and engaged, much more willing to move out.  I had to edit this video to get the full segment of the circle to the right because Rashid was less willing to work in that direction and his owner seemed resigned to working him more to the left, either knowingly or unknowingly.  In the second, I see a horse much happier working in both directions and an owner who is comfortable asking for either direction.
