    Need help finding a good trainer for a pacing horse

    Hi, I am new to this forum and need some help. My husb has a wonderful Kentucky Mt. Horse that is 6 yrs. Old. We have had him for 3 yrs. And when we got him it was apparent he was started poorly. We are new to gaited horses and ride in the Shawnee forest in IL. We ride with alot of Quarter horse ppl and where we ride, there isn't alot of places to gait anyway. That being said, I have a wonderfully smooth gaiting RMH that is 5 1/2 yrs. Old. He was started properly and has a naturally smooth gait. We are wanting to get my husb horse to gait properly...we are pretty certain he could if we can get him into the proper place for training. He gets excited and high headed when we try to get him into the gait and is pacing &/or pace stepping. This is what we have gathered from viewing gaiting videos etc. He's such a great horse personality wise and stamina, etc. we want to do everything we can to help him relax to learn the proper gait. Any help in finding a reasonable priced and experienced trainer to help him and then to help us to learn to continue with the training. We live in South Central IL and would be willing to travel up to 5 hrs or hopefully find a trainer we are comfortable with. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you all for your time and consideration and I look forward to reading many post here.
