[RC] TWH-no lope - Ed Kilpatrick

well ray,  since the running walk is more of a four beat gait, and the lope or canter is a three beat gait, that is why some TWHs  have a problem doing a decent lope.  i have noticed the same thing with one that i am training now. if you ever get chester's speed up to a gallop, though, you will probably find that he will smooth out and move out, because the gallop is a four beat.        ed
