This looks really good so far - especially as it is just your first animation!
You have a lovely movement in the legs, but I would extend them a but farther so the horse looks more energetic. The stretch in the shoulder looks really good too.
The thing that really stand out to me is the lack of movement in the head and neck. Just a slight bob of the neck can really bring a piece to life and make it more realistic. The same goes for the croup - it should go up and down slightly in time with the extension of the hindlegs.
I hope that makes sense! And I can't wait to see it finished because it is already looking amazing - when it's done the vision will be 5.5!! :heart:

I love seeing "animations" that are animations! I feel like 90% of the time I click on them they're just an eye blinking. This is awesome and well done. :)

Very stunning! Just a slight more turn in the neck as he brings his front right leg forward and it would really be a stunning trot!
