    What gait?

    So I know the normal gaits but when it comes to gaited horse gaits....I'm totally clueless . Winnie is gaited, and I finally got my mom to video it today, but I have no clue what she does.....


    So does anyone have a clue?? Sorry the videos a bit blurry but my camera sucks...



    ^^that should work, if not the link is:

    Video of winniegait - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


    Also, theres not too many gaited trainers in the area, so I just kind of go with the flow on things, ummm so yes it is no where near perfect.

    Any tips??

    I spent forever working on not gaiting but now that I'm not showing heck I want to enjoy my gaited horse! Plus its comfy...and I don't have to post

    I'm not the greatest at determining gaits but it looks like a rack to me.
    Its hard to tell from a distance but that's my guess.
    Here is a good site to study for more information
    Index of Gait Critique

    I usually only know when I'm doing it wrong in the saddle. Either she will get pacy which is very uncomfortable and difficult to post, or she will actually trot and I have to post
    For me its easier to feel then to actually see what she is doing. I can tell when she is collected and really reaching out in front and getting up under herself and her power is really coming from her rear.

    It's a little too far away and sunny. It might be a rack some of the time, but it looked more diagonal, like a pace or a trot. Have you looked around youtube? I've had good luck searching for Tennessee Walker gaits and the like. My horse racks well, but only out on the trail with a nice long stretch--I tried to get some vid of him in a ring today, and no go! It can be frustrating trying to figure out gaits!

    You were doing a Flat walk, Its just a tad faster than a dog walk and slower than the running walk. I can tell because his head is shaking but he's still not going as fast as the running walk should be.

    Can you ask ur mom if she can video you riding again? Tommorow I can try and Ride my tennese walker and show you the gaits.

    I almost said running walk but wasn't sure. There are a couple of changes in there that make it tough.

    It is hard to tell because of the speed of the gait, but I just wanted to say that he didn't look pacey to me in the video - more of a rack to me

    Thanks...I'll try and get her to video again, but not sure if the camera actually has batteries or not right now...haha.

    I tend to blow through a pack of 16 batteries in like two weeks....whoops

    You need to get some recharchable ones, I use them in my camera and GPS. They are a real money saver

    Starts off as a Flat Walk then moves into a running walk. You should feel the difference in your butt between the two. Although I should be seeing more of a head bob. It's a little difficult to see.
