I have a lovely TWH. He has a smooth RW when he really wants it, however I'm not sure what he does when it gets rough. He might work back and forth between the correct RW and a pace, and I have heard of TWH doing a two step like the pasa fino's. Is there any exercises to help him gait better and also how to train him to transition from the RW to a nice canter? He is very hard to get to canter as when asked for more speed, he breaks into this horrible to sit Pace.
Also, I've been thinking of showing him, but I didn't want to show him in the normal Walking horse shows, as I don't do the whole pad thing. So how would it be to show him in the open shows, which are mostly QH, Thoro's and grades.
