Cute, but he's pacing and step pacing in that video. What makes him worth $4,000 if he doesn't walk? The most important thing to a gaited horse is their gait.

Some people don't mind a pacer, especially for trails. If you ever wanted to show or re-sell him, the pacing is going to be a problem.

Congrats! He's very pretty.

You can work on his gait if you're not happy with it.

What are you going to do with him?

parking him out that far is probably hard on him

He is very handsome. :)

I agree with not parking him that far. The front legs should still be under the horse, with the back legs just a little back. I actually don't park mine to mount anyway, since it is hard on their backs. I like it about like this...




If you want to break that pace, we can certainly help. I'm re-habing my pacer now.

I somehow missed how old he is....but my concern would be if these people raised him they may have taught him to park to this extreme early. Couldn't that lead to issues later? Just like anything done too much too early......Reiners, h/j, etc......

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Diegosmom, I want to congratulate you on the purchase of your horse. Any horse is only worth what someone will pay and to you, your new boy is worth what you gave to you or you would have passed.

I hope you have many happy trails ahead of you :)
