Thanks a lot! Very helpful, I have heard about the do a lot of walking, and up the speed until in a running walk. She kind of rides around all strung out too - very uncollected, head up, etc. I used to ride Arabians though, and they are totally a different look. So maybe Walkers don't collect up like some of the other breeds?
You gave me some relief that we may be able to get this back under control, even if we need a trainer! I'm willing to try that, if we need to! Her trot isn't all that comfortable a little bouncy - not terrible though, just compared to her gait :)
My gelding, who is 3. Has an awesome gait, never trots or paces under saddle, but he trots at liberty too, just not often... if he's going in the pasture, he typically is gaiting. This mare seems to trot in pasture more than gait.
She is 10. She has great breeding/bloodlines. Lots of big names. So she is obviously bred to do this, and do it well.
