TWH Cantering & Parking Out Advice Needed Please

Hello,

I'm not really having to much luck with this site as far as advice goes, so I will give it a shot again. Hopefully I'm posting in the right spot.

I need help with teaching my TWH horse to Canter nice and slowly, without biting down on the bit, extending his neck and bucking????

I also need some advice / pointers as to how to teach him to "park out"?

I left these questions under the horse show section without luck, so I'm hoping it was due to posting it under the wrong section.

Any and all advice is appreciated,

Thanks bunches!!

Saddle fit is really really crucial with a gaited horse. Their withers need a lot of room for those large sweeping motions they make. That may be why your horse is stretching his neck and bucking up.

The other reason might be he needs a chiropractor and I'm not kidding.

If you're training him for the show ring, I'm out of the picture, I am strictly a trail rider. Walking Horses need to "find their legs" and generally aren't encouraged to canter until they're older. I don't know what the rules are these days but in the Performance Classes a horse has to be five years old to be in a canter class.

It takes a lot of time and patience with many of them, to get them to the "canter-walk". I have one that does it at liberty, in the pasture, and it's breath taking to watch his Big Ole SnotFace do that - he's got a lot of attitude - lol lol When he wants to show off, I can almost count between footfalls when he does his "canter-walk".

Years ago, I trained my Arab/Saddlebred to perform that slow Walking Horse canter; it took a long time and a lot of patience but once he got the hang of it, he often would show off without any encouragement from me.

At any rate, first and foremost, the saddle has to fit properly and then have a chiro check him to be sure he's not out of alignment somewhere

Best place to post this is Horse Breeds: Gaited horses.

I can't help you myself, never tried to teach a horse to park out myself and I don't canter my horses.

Doesnt really matter where you post. I think most people do like I do and click, "new posts" all new posts regardless of subforum show up. It does sometimes mess you up and you read questions out of context.
Check your saddle fit and get some miles on him at the run walk. How many miles are on him now ? TN walkers that have been pasture puffs for awhile have terrible canters.
