    This, to me, is how a dressage horse should ride. I was most impressed with how soft the reins were and with the aids being more subtle than I am used to seeing on the WBs.

    Does she stand still for UNtacking? If she stands fine for untacking, I would guess the moving is related to girthing up. I find that mares especially can be hard to girth. I have had a draftX...

    Several things. Treat him as cold-backed and longe him before you get on.

    When you get on, pick up your stirrups so you are not sitting hard on his back.

    Actually, there was a case of a roan TB...Catch A Bird sired a couple true dark-headed roans in Australia, I think it was. But other than that exception, there are no true roans in the TB world.
