I ride a normal horse =D
Am pleased to pass that ball along, I think I still deserve it, but as you have it, well it can be yours! Am glad that there are other American's who ride normal horses without that funky dance!

Well now, thanks to you Gidget, I will forever see the run-walk as the pee-pee dance for horses.

Alexs ,

I didn't know you are British. Good, then you could be our resident translator. 'Cause you live in the US of A and your speak English and know American English, you could fill me in on some of the odd words I hear coming from posters in the UK. I just kinda don't say anything, because unlike you all, I don't like letting on how ignorant I am.

ROFL as the owner of a gaited horse may I say this thread is hilarious! My little TWH gelding most definitely doesn't do the pee-pee dance LOL!
Seriously OP your form looks decent, and I love the horse:) I know I am gonna get snowballed for this but... If her gait is that rough either ask for a tad more extension or collect her just a little more. It will usually help to smooth out the jarring of the brain that can occur with our dancing darlings LOL

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

Actually, this horse is pacing in the 2nd and 3rd photos. That is a two beat gait. Might have been the source of confusion for some people. :)
It is doing the running walk in the first and fourth photos though.

The gaited horses I ride often slip into a pace, I think its because I am not used to the rocking motion of a gait. So they pace to match my two-beat rhythm. :)
Just remember to keep your hips supple and flexible!
