Right now that's all my Cody will do! We haven't refined it down to a canter yet but he's perfectly happy to thunder along! When he's playing outside, we can feel it through the floor! All healthy horses can gallop! How absurd!

any direction in a field. She knows when we stop anywhere and I say "go" she knows it means full speed and she streamlines her ears and takes off. IF she sees a person or camera she perks up her ears.

She has been great with learning to collect. Just to keep her under me at first because of her long strides we worked on getting her on the bit right away. The BO is a dressage instructor and she helped me a lot and it only took an hour for her to repeatedly relax into the bit. So now she'll collect at a walk trot or canter or open her strides depending on verbal or leg cues but in the feild if I say "Go" I just hold on and it's SO fun.

people really need to at least go to wikipedia and look up something on the breed or just even Clydesdale pastures. It'll show more than just a horse and cart.

I like those pictures too. I wish the first one was a little more clear.
