[RC] Can you teach a horse to walk faster? - michelle

I have a nice mare that I am conditioning for endurance. She's an 8 yr
Arab, 14hh with short legs. She's been undersaddle for 2 and a half years.
She can do a great, big strided trot, and a nice smooth canter. But her
walk is SLOW!. My husband just got a horse who has a fast walk. I'd like
my horse to have a faster walk. Is this just in her genes or can I teach
her to walk faster? I've tried a bit but she almost always just breaks
into a trot. I've rarely, if ever gotten her to walk fast, big strided and
I've owned her for 2.5 years?

Any suggestions are appreciated.
