Re: [RC] [RC] TWH training - Tina Hicks

Hi Mary, maybe Truman or Maryben will chime in as they have many more 
miles on a gaited horse than I do.

I have a WH who trots about 80% of the time. Since I didn't start life as 
a 
gaited person :) I let him do whatever gait he chooses - I pick the 
speed. Well I try to pick the speed :) So we trot, rack, pace, and do 
various and sundry other gaits as we go down the trail. I've been riding 
him for about 2 years - have done 1 50 on him last year and plan to do 
some CTRs and 50s on him this year.

Unless you specifically don't want to post (and I do like to post - 
gives me somthing to do <g>) and/or don't mind letting your gaited 
horse trot (a serious crime to some) then let him do the gaits he feels 
most comfortable doing to cover the miles.

Hi,

I am just getting started and am not quite sure about which gaits to use
when training my TWH. He does a running walk but he also trots. He is 15
years old and we are just doing this for fun and because we both like trail
riding. Any suggestions for gaited horses/

Thanks - Mary
