Im just a trail rider so walk trot canter and gallop is about all I know. Besides the flat walk of a Tennessee walker.
I'm going to try barrel racing with my mare this year. I was trotting around the barrels, or so I thought. Then I watched the video and realized she was paceing most of the time.
I need a good book to learn how to change gaits and all that good stuff.
My mare is just a grade I paid hardly nothing for but she loves to run and is very willing. I think she's about half standerdbred.
If I could figure out how to keep her paceing and speed up with it, screw barrel raceing I'll make her a speed pacer. Or country fast pace pleasure as they call it around here.
Oh and I'm only doing small local shows.
I'm also going to try competitive trail with her.
