This is Cole parking out like a Morgan. He taught himself how to do this--I just encouraged him with clicking. He learned it in his stall, and he only recently started doing it outside. I have to wonder if the desire to park out is genetic. If he was a Quarter Horse, would he have done this?

A proper Morgan park out would have his front legs vertical, but Cole Train always over does everything. No wonder he takes this to an extreme. It doesn't matter--he will probably never see a show ring, anyway.

His next step, after I click him for this, he will lean often lean back and bow like a dog. He does it much lower in his stall than outside, but I'm sure he will start getting lower outside, too. He is a very silly little horse.

Actually, it is an illusion caused by his pose.  His withers are a little on the low side, and I have to be careful when I mount so that the saddle doesn't slip.

Gee, it looks like Cole has some impressive withers.  Did you have trouble with saddle fitting?
