It's the boots! She gaited barefoot most of the time. Only tried to trot 3 times in 5 miles. Poor thing was suffering on parts of the trail that had gravel.
So what do I do? Friday ill try all 4 feet booted. I'm at a loss, though, I don't really want to pay $160 to shoe all four when I only need all four for the competitions.
Thanks for all the help everyone on the gaits! I used your advice and it definitely helped when I over exaggerated the chair seat position. :)
