    She looks gorgeous :) From what I can tell, she carries herself well and reaches well underneath her body with her back legs. That is great for a walker (or spotted saddle horse) and really helps make the ride smooth. Beautiful horse!!

    ^^ Just read this in a terrible brittish accent

    LMAO! SOrry seem to be an easy target today!

    Bright- Your hands are open ended. You want to not clench the reins but you do want to close your hands around them. I have a bad habit of leaving my hands open like yours are while training. Its easier to make adjustments for me with open hands.

    She doesn't know what a running-walk is! Let's laugh at her!


    PS: I'm glad I'm not the only one reading your posts in a British accent. You can make me sound like a redneck if you want.

    Oh no. My head is at my knees, and the worst part is that I was so sure that you were an idiot for not knowing what a trot was, and now it is me, not you who is the idiot.

    I want to crawl under a rock and for you all to forget about me. Please.

    Am going to try to stand up tall and say that you guys are odd, and ride funky, pretty looking horses.

    Where a trot in a "normal" gaited horse (think w/t/c) is a two beat gait, a running walk is actually four beats (correct me if I'm wrong gaited riders!)...Each foot will come up and be placed down at a different time.

    Trot is two legs up at the same time, dropped at the same time, and the opposite legs come up at that point.

    Ha ha, we're just passing the idiot ball around tonight!

    A normal horse's intermediate gait is a trot. A gaited horse doesn't trot, but instead has an intermediate easy-gait. A running-walk is one of those trot substitutes. A running-walk has the same foot fall as a normal walk, only sped up. In a running-walk, there is to suspension; there is always a foot on the ground at all times. That's what makes it so smooth. (Unless you're Baby Girl. I've ridden smoother trotting horses!)
