Smooth trot, what can it be from?
Hhahaha so several people have seen my horse trot and everyone thinks it's a little funny. I don't think he does it all the time, but sometimes it looks like he's almost stiff in the back end or doesn't pick his back legs off very high, either way he has a super smooth trot. He is a mustang. Both his sire and half brother were gaited. I am not saying that he is gaited, but I can't figure out what could be causing him to trot like this. He has no pain or problems in his legs and has always been sound so far. My trainer lady said that it looks almost like his leg or muscles didn't develop right, possibly from malnurisment which would cause kind of the "gimp". what the heck would cause the super smooth barely bouncy trot?
I really wasn't sure where to put this, so I figured it was about a trot, so riding was fitting.
