With rating her? Did you do round pen work, etc?

I did little tugs and releases when she lowered her head.

What did you do to teach her to get the leads and canter like that?

I have some video but I can't access it while I'm at work.

ARIATGIRL , that video looked like loads of fun! I'm so jealous - the only drill team we have here is run under our local 4H group so no adults allowed - haha! That just looks like lots of fun, and even the practices were probably as much fun as the actual show! Way to go!

Yes, I canter and gallop my Walkers. Let me see if I can find any pictures with me riding... I've got tons of pictures of free-lunging them, but but not many of me cantering them.

Ok, found some pics! (shockingly, I don't have any pictures of me and my TWH gelding cantering... but I have a lot of him free-lunging) also, some of these pictures were taken before I started wearing a helmet... so they were taken anywhere from a year ago to several years ago...

Gypsie, TWH mare


(me riding, taken about two years ago, I think)



(me riding, taken earlier this year)


(my 15 year old cousin riding)




Dakota, TWH gelding (sorry, I have no pictures of anyone cantering on him... just pics of him free-lunging)

(As a youngster, first ever canter on the lunge-line)


(Last year... I think)


(Earlier this year)






Sorry for the pic overload! I love showing off my Walkers!

Thank you! As far as the cantering, it's their natural canter. I've never had to 'teach' them how to canter... and I take like, a hundred pictures one after the other, and sometimes I'll get four or five great shots like these, lol!
