Maybe he just nered to build up more gaiting muscles? Gait him untill he's starting to get tired, but before he trots, and then let him just walk? Well, after he stopped being sore tho..
Crow is funny with another thing too.. I can walk him normally. Then he slowly speeds up and floats into that slow gait, smoothly speeds up to a fater gait, then if I don't stop him, he sneaks in just a slight canter-beat in the gait.. and before I know it I'm at a fullblown, fast canter and just sit like ''how the h did this happen?!" xD
It took quite a long time before I managed to notice this behaviour before he was already gaiting :P
It's harder for trotting horses, they can't just sneak into new gaits that smoothly xD
Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.
