The KMSHA has a great amount of shows, most of them in the KY area. Are you going to travel for showing? If you aren't traveling are you planning on showing open against other gaiteds, if this is the case the judge should be knowledgeable enough to realize the type gait your horse will do. Most park classes the horses aren't "trained" to do the show gait, they are born with it naturally and the horses that don't lift as high are used for trail. None of the breeders who show I know use any training aids.
