Starts out really nice but then seems to get just a little pacey when you push her on a bit, how old is the mare? If she is young and you're starting her it may just be that she is still developing those muscles and she just needs more time under saddle. Over all she looks like a very nice girl!

shes probably six, her owner only rides once a week if that i think. But I'm out the 2 times a week riding her now. I'm trying really hard to keep that second gear solid, her slow gait was bad at first too. But the more i ride her the less stiff and pacey she is.

Ok, that makes sense. You might try some light hill work, and possibly riding in some taller grass. Since she is not ridden very much she is just a bit out of shape, I think she is coming along nicely though:)

I don't know much about gaited horses but she sure is beautiful! I was hoping to buy one of those but they are very pricey and hard to find here.
