It's really fun! Hahah!
One time, I was running with two other girls, and out of nowhere I felt like she just stopped running and was floating. When she racks fast is it REALLY comfortable!
I love to run with my aunts Standie [Woodie] because his pace is so comfortable..and the fact that he's faster then most of the other horses is a bonus LOL
| Not all STBs pace It takes talent to ride a pace. I have done many saddle pacing races and I developed a really strong leg doing it lol. If going to train a STB for jumping best off with a trotter and not a pacer. |
Agreed with having a trotter over a pacer for jumping, but I think it kind of depends on the horse. My aunts horse jumped 4.6ft courses when he was younger at a pace and could have gone higher if I had kept riding him but I bought a new horse. And at my old barn a girl has a pacer that jumps 4ft [still training] at a pace and they show successfully in the eventing world.
