Vida has a very fast walk so for sight seeing that's 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...

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 don't move

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 definitely the gallop. Now that I'm startin back with my STB I love the pace, yes not show worthy but oh so comfy!
