I have a Mulit-Gaited Rocky. I am new to gaited horses, and am not 100% sure on how to get him to do different gaits. I can get him to trot and I can get him to "gait" but I once went to a small local show and the judge was a gaited horse person. She was SO impressed that I got my rocky to do 3 different "gaits" in pleasure class. Lol. I had to tell her I had no idea how or what he did. But sure, Rockys can trot...
thanks I do no that's its almost impossible to completly get a standeredbred to stop pacing
Before you go stereotyping an entire breed, perhaps you should do some research - out of all the standardbreds I've retrained after the track, only 1 has continued to pace. The others all go w/t/c easily, and don't fall back into pacing.
My friend with her OTTSTB gelding, who was my very first horse, and I retrained (shown at his first event where he placed first) -
And this was another one I started, picture taken on ride number 5, his first time being asked to go faster than a walk... naturally picked up a lovely trot. This horse was a pacer who earned 120k over 7 years of racing, including several stakes races in NY.
