I am in a bind. Well, not really, but to myself I am.
I work for a stable sponsored by St Judes. We have all Paso Finos and Tennessee Walkers, because they're much smoother for the children to ride, not as bouncy as other breeds.
However, I've never ridden these before. My whole life I've ridden/trained/& shown Hunters/Jumpers/Dressage/Eventing.
I've ridden quite a bit, and I really love the breeds. They're pretty exceptional horses, and I'm very glad I'm getting the opportunity to work w/ them.
But I have no clue what their gaits are called.
I obviously, when riding, can tell the difference between gaits when they change, but I have no idea what they are or what they're called.
Could somebody help me? I'd like to actually know what I'm doing instead of just riding
