Just read what you added, thanks! Totally makes sense what you said about rider needing to be calm and cool. I am not bothered by his happy feet but he is used for lessons occasionally and I know the kids get tweaked out by his inability to stand still, which is only feeding the problem.... He's the kind of horse that I'm pretty sure was born broke so I feel like no one ever put a lot of actual training on him. He kind of just does what he was told and hasn't had a lot of formal education.
Wish I had another month or two with him to fill in some holes... He's a cute little stinker.
