Jamaal Bradley's Horse Blocking Animation

I have decided to start from the beginning of animation again. After being out of college for over a year I want to recharge my my skills and try to grasp all of the things that may have slipped my understanding. Like many cg animators I do not block enough.

I have realized that I do not block enough of my animation and why my splined results are always hard to watch. I can really appreciate the amount of detail he has here and it is a level to strive for.
