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

You don,t need steep hills. You need long, shallow ones. Them walk up, walk down, and do it again. Not very exciting but maybe very necessary.

He's not a daisy clipper but not so much animation it takes away from the smoothness. I don't show much anymore, we mostly just trail ride and he looooves it. He's my mountain goat,lol. My computer is fussing with me about the pics, this is all I could get loaded,lol (His ears are laid back because there was a mare trying to steal his nummies just out of the shot,lol)
I'm originally from Indy too! I also just bought a Rocky. Yours is beautiful!

Thanks SJWright! He's my spoiled mama's boy,lol. A few more pics because I can't help myself:p He turned 6 years old Wednesday, I can't believe it! Seems like just yesterday he was all legs and tearing insulation out of the barn walls,lol
He's only 2 in the top pic, as you can see he's gotten much darker,...and muddier lol
