I don't need a bit or long feet or pads or chains to "enhance" anything.
Absolutely.
I personally don't understand the appeal of the "big lick" walkers - what happened to shows that base gait on NATURAL ability instead of artificial devices to make the horse walk funny?
Granted, there are many things wrong with each separate industry in the horse world, it just seems like the TWH industry has a whole shwackload of ... interesting... people.
