[RC] "walkers should trot " - A. Perez

 A prior post saidf racking was 'hard on the horse' and gaited
horses should be taught to trot.  I beg to differ.  Apart from
the exaggerated 'big lick' rack, any four-beat, no-suspension
gait (running wlak, single-foot, fox trot, tolt, etc) should be
less impact on the horse, just as it is less impact on the
rider.  My TWH will get 'pacey' if not collected or when tired,
and I think that is harder on him than his four-beat running
