    Its called an Ambling 4 beat Gait...Some call it a saddle gait, some call it a rack...

    There isnt much 'Training' to do to acheive this, as it comes natural to the horse, no artificial aids required...just proper hoof angle and the right bit(s)...

    Do a lot of ground work, I usually spend 3 or 4 days on the ground before I get on one...

    If you need any help, I'm just keys away...

    I am a ways away from getting even a trot right now! He doesn't even like to do a full walk around me, rather stay as close as I will let him and pivot around me when doing ground work. ANy idea on how to get him to longe? And not be stuck to my side?

    Welcome to the fourm! My advice is that you always keep in mind you are training your horse for a lifetime, not just for the one moment- so instead of trying to force him to do something, get him to accept one small part of it today and build on that the next time.

    My advice is read, read, read. There are some great horse training books, most which of course I'm at a loss to think of right now. . . Cherry Hill's "Making not Breaking" was a good one. Enjoy your boy!

    well you don't 'want' him to trot...but when time comes to make him move a trot is much easier then a pace...

    I started a mare the other day that is about the same way...I take a whip and smack it behind their butt and on the ground to make them go...shes lazy, you just gotta make them work..

    Deffinitely read all you can... I just finished "Horses Don't Lie" by Chris Irwin.... it is not so much about training but about how a horse thinks. It helps me think things through when training my horse and judging reactions and interactions. I highly recommend it.
