Question
tail straight
tail straight  
hello sir, is this horse galloping on its own as its tail is straight?

Answer
hi-- it looks to me though the horse is galloping on it's own. the rider has no hold on the horse so the horse is galloping on it's own. the tail in not straight out but looks to be flowing in the wind.  also the horse has it's ears up as it is comfortable. thanks ED HESS

Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
