Re: [RC] Which breed is best? - Nancy Sturm

HI Jon,

I always love to hear from someone who is competing on Standardbreds.  I'm
trying to remember - don't you and your son send some to the track?

So, tell me more about pacing and trotting.  Our Twist (lifetime earnings
$1008)  paced at the track, paces in harness and has learned to trot under
saddle, mostly.  His trot, however, has a very awkward, undeveloped feel to
it.  In fact, when we first bought him, I kept forgetting his name and
wanted to call him "lurch".  Is this because he just hasn't trotted enough

He's a great horse and may be headed for a career as a therapy horse for our
disabled daughter.  I don't think he has the heart/energy to be an endurance
