Vida has a very fast walk so for sight seeing thats nice. When she is in her full collected show gait its really comfy and we cover a lot of ground. I like her rocking chair lope too. Boy tough call it should be which one do you hate the most. That would be when she gets pacy its a rough ride and if I don't have on a good bra its pretty uncomfortable
Any of her 4 beat gaits would be my favorites.

Dumas has a trot that will rattle your fillings loose. I like the walk....I just enjoy being there with them and the chance to slow down while the world is spinning so fast. I don't canter much or at all really, I'm never in hurry BUT, Dumas has a great rocking canter...

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

it really depends on which horse:

April- When she gets into her collected pleasure lope... It seriously brings a smile to my face.

Chloe- she has the best pleasure trot I have ever been on!!! She just gets into a nice little cadance and I dont move

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

Thanks for your replies everyone! I agree, it definitely depends on the horse.

I find the canter really comfy and I like it when you push the horse on faster and you can tell the horse just wants to go as well. Then the horse picks up into a really fast canter, almost reaching a gallop! I still get butterflies and joy doing that!

I like Wylee's little slow jog, and I like Te's canter. So I guess it all depends on the horse im riding!

When I had my TB and Arab it was definately the gallop. Now that I'm startin back with my STB I love the pace, yes not show worthy but oh so comfy!

A cat looks down on a man,
But a patient horse looks a man in the eye and sees him as an equal
