Ah thank you, we got in an agrument last night about hand placement. It is the one thing that irks me a lot. He is sooooo convinced that's how you do it.
The bf really, really wants one of them. So this will most likely just convince him even more. But nothing is absolute yet. At the very least we will be heading down by him to work them once in awhile. But if he sends them up to us they would be with us about 2 months. Paying board would be cheaper than a trainer and then we get extra horses for the rest of the summer. Right now the bf is borrowing peoples horses so he can come ride with us.
Thanks for describing their gait, I would be terribly confused with what they were actually doing. I'm really hoping he sends them to us. It would be a lot of fun and I've never ridden a gaited horse before. If we get them I will definitely be updating and most likely have a ton of questions.
