Good luck when the ice melts!
Thank you, my barn is surrounded mostly by fairly flat fields, so I might have some difficulty finding some steeper hills. I definitely know where I'm going to start, but I might have to hunt around for where to take it from there. Thank you guys so much for the advice, this is exactly what I have been looking for for a long time! No one at my barn owns or understands how and why gaited horses move, including myself so I'm so happy you all do haha! Thanks again
