Thanks so much both of you. I saw people riding that way in photos and videos of gaited horses and just copied what I saw.
Again I haven't taken lessons and don't plan to, but I can see I need to do some more research.

Or you can just try and see what works for you ;)

Lessons is really good ttho, and now I'm not talking about just gaited lessons. If you have the right trainer.. my first 12 years on horseback was pretty lousy since none of those trainers worked for me :)


Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.

Zab, I think you a crow look great. Especially since you are both green. I don't know much about gaited horses and the way that they are supposed to move. I couldn't tell the difference between a rack and a pace :/ But he is a beautiful mover. :)

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

It's ok, I had to look real close too.. xD I guess the trick is to focus on two legs at te time.. but in the dark film I missed the trot when I did that.. x)
Thanks :)

Sissimut: aw.. ok then :P

ok, I actually got this to work on my computer
Anywho, it did seem a bit pacy at times, but that's to be expected if he's still finding his balance in the gait. I was a bit worried he'd be a little stiff in the hind end when racking and have trisupport (lol, bad translation of þrístuðningur, but what I mean is that he would have 3 legs on the ground instead of 2, if that didn't coma across), but he surprised me there, I didn't see any of that, or atleast very little.

Hmm, I'm having a hard time trying to "evaluate" his gait, since I almost always base it on the rythem of a horse's hoofs (the sound)

But overall, good job! He's going to be a nice little tölter And you seem to have a good seat (it can be a bit tricky when they're on the verge of breaking into another gait)!
