[RC] Extended Trot - Peggy B-Smith

I have ridden with people in the past who would not let their horses trot. They made them do an extremely extended trot. What I saw on these horses was their front legs all beat up by the back legs hitting the front. They looked like they had been trotting through barbed wire!
My mare does not have a nice extended trot, but does have a nice, relaxed canter. I finished all 4 days of Death Valley in '04 cantering quite a bit and in great shape.
