Re: [RC] traveling wide - sharp penny

 I believe some horses learn to travel wide behind as they
get more endurance miles under their girth. My guy Reno was
a 3rd level dressage horse in his past life...when I got
him he traveled very elevated in the front and had a rather
parky trot. I never noticed him traveling noticably wide
behind. Last year on a conditioning ride a friend noted how
wide he traveled behind and how she noticed alot of good
endurance horses had that trait. I was surprised..I know
his trot has lengthened and he had learned to travel in
more of a hunter frame than the hightly elevated dressage
frame (except when he gets excited and starts pieffing in
place) over the 3 years of endurance training/conditioning
miles I have put on him. Today I noticed him cruzing around
the pen harrassing my very prego paint mare and realized he
has learned to travel VERY wide behind and does the *squat
and reach* thing with his hind legs when he really wants to
cover ground. Has anyone else noticed their horse learning
to travel wide?

Regards,
Penny
As far as I'm concerned, I think traveling wide is a
plus.
