Coming to terms
Well..I've come to terms that Alahna will probably never have a lope or a slowish trot that you can sit.
I rode her two days ago and realized that she's not built to go too much slower than she's already going. Granted, she's still on the forehand undersaddle and I'll be addressing that next. I don't think she'll ever be able to keep pace with the majority of horses around here. She'a going to be one h*ll of a barrel horse though!
So, anyone else had a horse that just isn't built (with it's stride length and such) to go much slower or as slow as you'd like? How long did it take you to realize and come to terms with it? I've had Alahna a year last month and just realized it wednesday and came to terms today.
