teaching gaited horse trot?
I own a TWH/peruvian Paso.. he just turned 5. I've had him for almost 1 year- back when I bought him I solely wanted to trail ride etc. now my direction has changed to wanting one-day to attend schooling shows.. hence I will want to take jumping/english/dressage maybe lessons in the future. I am a green rider with a great horse.. he is very broke to ride- but only green due to his age.. and my lack of experience. but i am at a crossroads on what to do next with him?
Aries CAN trot- mostly free-lunging/lunging.. however he does trot under saddle once in a blue moon. But most of the time under saddle he PACES.
my My question is..
can I teach him to TROT under saddle majority of the time? Is it possible? He LOVES to jump, we do it quite often with no problems.. and he is fairly level headed
Any how-tos or opinions would be great!! :)
Or should I be contemplating a new horse? And finding a new home for him? (there is no way I can keep 2 horses)
