I just trailride, no showing, but it's always fun to have pictures..
There's some pacey thing the first seconds, he wasn't happy about dads car standing in the middle of the road Normally I discourage the pace but it's not always perfect.
I use the walk, slow gait-rack, trot and canter on the trail. There's some trot in the video too. I wanted to see how fast he could trot.. it's funny. He's bred to trot fast and this is the speediest trot he has left.. he was way faster when I first began to ride him.. it was also even less balanced than this so I'm not sad about it.
Does anyone else both trot and gait their horse? Around here, it's unthinkable not to trot a horse, gaited or not. I sort of like trotting once in a while too though.
Well, here goes. Play nice, I'm not a professional but I've done my best to get a happy horse. At least I think he prefers this over the slaughterhouse..
