as Darrin said. voice commands. thats what ive been told and im slowly learning with my own mare. thats how she was trained. and ive seen other TW riders doing the same.... voice and reins.

i know one fella that has two walkers and he trained them both to different sounds. so each horse has its own learned commmand to go into its running walk, and then its own command for galloping.

my mare a simple clucking sound and she will go into her running walk with out any other action. get her going and the occasional cluck to keep her there.

Figured a change of pace back to the natural state would do us horse lovers some good!

I've always loved the big lick walkers... Folsom Prison Blues is one of my favorite stallions. I don't agree with the way a lot of the people ride, nor do I agree with soring and all that stuff, but I fell in love with the big lick walking horses years ago and really, really would like to show in the flat shod division one day...

Yeah...except that the horse in Grade 1-2 lame, probably on the right front.

On the "trail ride" I hear a lot of "metal on metal." Is the horse wearing chains?

Nice horse, too bad the humans aren't equal to it.

Guilherme,
I wondered that myself when I was watching the first half, the first part of the girl riding him for the first time...I believe the sound could be coming the bridle, because I didn't see the horse wearing chains on his feet but I still heard it when viewing the girl riding him in the arena.

I did wonder about the sound as well but thought it might be the bridle. Don't even get me started on some of those bits. ha ha Can't imagine why they would bother with chains on a trail ride but stranger things have likely happened.
