I don't think this is a stupid question! I have been waiting for the replies as well! I have shown many horses, but all stock horses. In stock horses, you need to be able to square up your horse, back, pivot and stand patiently until the judge releases you. They have to be able to stand without looking at the judge when they walk around the horse and you need to know how to stay within view of the judge without blocking his/her view of the horse at all times. You can find out how to do that on the web. It shows you how to divide the horse into quarters and where to stand when the judge is in each quarter. Now I raise Rocky's and I have never done a gaited horse show... so I'm not sure how much of what I explained is different... but I would love to know! I plan on showing 2 of my babies next year in hand so I will be learning the gaited side of this as well.
