Re: [RC] Walker - Peter Harper

We raise and ride TWH's in endurance and have a lot of experience with gait.

Can you tell me more about your horse.  Starting at a dog walk, when you ask 
for more speed what is the next gait you get.  If they are not square in their 
gait they will break to either a pace (2-beat gait where the legs on the same 
side move together, LF-LR .. RF-RR) or trot (2-beat diagonal where the opposing 
legs move together LF-RR .. RF-LR).

If they break to a pace:
- Ask for more collection.  You want them to round out more.
- Light contact on the reins with your hands held low.
