Ok I know this is a highly sensitive subject. It is for me too, I am new to the walking horse and gaited horse world. I own the most wonderful walking horse stallion in the world he is almost 4, I've basically broke him on my own. I would love to show at some local shows, (nothing big). BUT I am wondering can you show gaited classes without making a horse uncomfortable or being abusive or even borderline abusive. I ask about a "headseat" on a previous post, and got alot of sarcastic remarks. I am just wanting to know if you can show these horses and it be something THEY can enjoy not be miserable, if so I don't want any part of it. I will just trail ride :).
And please If you can't post in a friendly manner, don't respond.
