How does he look in this picture?

Ok, just ignore my seat..really I have no idea what I was doing..
But what can you say about his gait? :)



Sorry for the low quality.


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

It looks pretty well-balanced from what I can see.

Nicely broken 4 beat gait - difficult to see from single picture but looks like a smooth gait - how did you feel?

It felt good as far as I remember, if I remember right:P We were training trot and the gait I had in between was sometimes really good and sometimes poor..

Can't you see it in the picture? :)
Depends on how you count.. we count 3 gaits as normal but I've noticed you tend to say regular horses have four, separating canter and gallop..

Anyway, he can: walk, trot, rack (+foxtrot, stepping pace which I don't encourage even if it's smooth, and some kind of slow and good fourbeat gait possibly flatwalk o the like) canter, gallop and two beat/flying pace. I don't ride the flying pace as it feel unbalanced but he did it before he learnt to canter properly. I've just recently started to ask for trot.



Note; first time I've worked on getting a trot under saddle, excuse my seat in the trot as I'm both not used to trotting and has lost my balance and I want thecues for trot and rack to be as different as possible especially in the start. The walk isn't great either and I have no excuse for my seat in the walk and rack picture..I usually sit correctly.. :3

Beautiful :)

Picture perfect.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.
