She never raced, and she was never trained to race.
She grew up unbroke until she was 6.
She can collect at the walk and trot and do circles at both gaits.

Not to hijack this thread at all, but how do you train them to canter instead of pacing? Thanks!

ETA: There's a lady near my house that will be putting horses on the property, and one of the horse paces, which I would love to get to canter... But I'm not sure how!

Do you know if that horse can trot also?
That's how I eliminate racking. I drop down to the trot and make her work

I also wanted to mention, my horse (mentioned above) is now cantering beautifully in the round pen with a saddle on. NOW I just got to get him to do it with ME on his back!

My goal is to accomplish this SOLID by the end of Summer. Just gotta keep at it.... (patience, patience)

Good luck to everyone else who is trying to do this too!!

The Walker I used to ride NEVER trotted, but I could get him to canter, I just had to be careful not to let him pace faster (because he would if he was feeling particularly lazy). But to push him into it, I usually had to do it on a turn and rock like I was riding a canter, and we would fall into it without to much trouble. I'd seen him canter on his own in the pasture, so with him it was really just trying to move his body into the motions and he would just pick it up on his own.
