That great! I'd like to say I think it's fun too, but I still can't get myself comfortable at the higher speeds. It just feels so weird when they get lower to the ground and the nice 3 beat gait turns into a mess of legs. A slow hand gallop is about all I want to do so far. I also have a ex-racehorse. He actually seemed to know it was Derby day on Saturday. We were out trail riding and started cantering, but he decided he wanted to go faster while I was cool with cantering. We came to a common ground and hand galloped. Next time maybe I'll just bridge my reins and let him go!
