    Thumbs down trot?

    Hi im helping my old neighbour to look after his horse (lunging, riding, general care) but I have been training him to change gait on the lunge but he doesnt seem to know how to trot... he does like ... a very very very slow canter movement and if you whistle for him to slow down a tiny bit more he will change to walk.. it is the same undersaddle so nothing to do with the lunge line... its the first time I have seen anything like this does anyone have any sugestions? Thanks

    I've never heard of it but have you tried leading then running??
    Or maybe get some trotting poles and try and run or ride him over them.

    I did think of the trot poles but im scared he would just be clumsy and fall hehe I really am stumped on this 1 and I have commented it to his owner and he said oh that's just him and I said but that's not normal but he doesnt want me to get a vet out... I don't thinktheres anything wrong with him he just doesnt seem to know how to trot haha I myt try the trot poles but lunging as I don't really fancy being on him if he is going to topple lol thanks

    Haha yer first time my horse went over them he went to jump them all but now he just trots :P
    What breed is he maybe he's gaited or something...

    Im nbot sure on his breed I live in rural spain and breeding is never very known lol unless pure bred! And I really don't think he's gaited hehe to me he looks like a mix of fresian and maybe andalusian but im not very good with breeds so I could be very wrong hahah I know im most probably making it worse by not troting him undersaddle but its such a strange movment I have no idea how the hell to stay in the saddle as he does it lol I will try and get a video soon and put it on here but I don't know when I will have time lol he doesnt jump so I hope he doesnt jump them all.... :)

    Turn him out and just watch him. It will help if you can turn him out with a group. See if he does his odd gait when others are trotting. If so you probably have some sort of gaited horse. My guess would be a walker .
