    Then you just don't respect what I've written.
    I asked or advice on how to make him fit for longer rides without training him too hard and cause later injury, and you tell me how to make him trot (which I even explained that I'm not interested in doing at the moment).
    Plus not expecting me to see and feel the differense between a rack and a pace.

    If you have any advice for what I asked about, I'm still interesting in hearing that.

    I had a reason for everything I wrote and quite frankly I find the hostility coming from you to be very uncalled for. I DID not think that you didnt know the difference between a rack and a pace. I don't recall even hinting at that.

    If you read my post without looking at it through defensive eyes, I did answer your question. If there is any info in there you don't want then just ignore it. No need to write defensive drawn out replies to it. In case you completely missed it:

    standies, like tb's are also used to being worked 6 days a week so a 20-30 minute workout 5 days a week would probably be best. Work at first with a lot of trot/pace as mentioned and work your way up. Walk and trot work can also be enough to start conditioning your horse.

    I know racking and pacing are different but where I live racking isnt common nor really even heard of. Excuse me if I used pace rather than racking. And yes I know they are different. You mentioned your horse rushing therefore I gave my opinion/advice on it. My OPINION is that trotting in general is easier in the horse especially if you are trying to train it. If you don't want to trot then that's fine but there really is no need to focus on that. When i/anybody replies to posts its not just the OP that the advice is meant for. Many other people read the posts and can also gain helpful information.

    Its all just my opinion/advice so take it or leave it. Like with anything you take what you want from everyones replies and leave the rest.

    Even there you write like he's coming straght from the track, which I've said he isn't, and that he's already workin 20-30 minutes five days a week.. I mentioned him rushing in the walk.

    Well, sorry for my hostileness then, but I'm so sick of hearing just everyone telling me that he should trot and not rack/pace, without even seeing him. More than your post already in this short thread as hinted things like ''the sooner you get rid of the rack...'' even tho I've said I want the rack. Not to mention tens of thusands answers before in different threads here and otherwise. If I say I want to keep his gait, I don't want advices on how to get rid of it.
    Most are of course way more offencive than yours but they've made me quite ...bad tempered when it comes to the topic. And I got a bit disappointed because I had figured people in this forum has more sense than in the others and that it was a safe place to ask.
    It's not an excuse, just an explanation.
    I'm sorry.

    Even if a horse has been off the track for years some of the mentally benefit when working with the same routine they 'grew up' with

    Don't get upset when you hear the same opinion over and over. All that means is you are doing something other than what most would but having said that, that doesnt make you wrong ;)

    I really can't provide any help other than that video is black and white. All I could see what some odd shape moving. Not sure how anyone can actually make anything out in it? I think I can make out a horse? Do you have a video that is clear and with normal colors?

    I'm afraid I don't or I had shown that :)
    But his canter is different now, it has a slight 4 beat but is much more of a canter. :)
