Arrow EVERYONE who owns or rides a gaited horse...

... should read this book. Seriously. It's very, very informative.



It's only $13.57 on Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/Easy-Gaited-Horses-methods-training-pleasure/dp/1580175627/

Has anyone else read it? What did you think?









Side note -

Please make an effort to collect your horses and please stop allowing them to pace (ignore that part, Icey and STB people). Contrary to popular belief, just because it's gaited doesn't mean it has to move in such a stiff, destructive frame. Your horse might prefer it now, but he won't be feeling so good a few years from now.

I don't own or ride a gaited horse on a regular basis, but I do own the book. I thought I knew a lot before but I learned tons from it. It's about time somebody wrote a book like it.

(Btw, *good* Icelandic trainers are very judicious with the flying pace because it is hard on the horse. Some don't even bother training it).

Thanks for your opinion on the book, and thanks for the Icey info. I had no idea.
