I have a Racking mare. She is pacey since she was shown in Hunters (witch I dont think that breed was made to do that stuff.) But she is pacey because of it. She is registered Racking but she paces. Well i have ask serverl walking horse trainers and they all told me to put either a trail pleasure shoe with heel or a plantation shoe with heel on her fronts only. Then to either try a Walking horse bit or a wonder bit since they move off of pressure coming from there mouth.
I have seen alot of walker in wonder bits and the horse is not crazy from it and I have seen alot of walkers in walking bits and there not crazy. I personally dont think a QH or a stock bred horse should EVER be in a wonder bit cause I have seen serveral of those breeds in that bit and there absolutely crazy undersaddle!

I have my TWH stallion in a wonder bit hes doing well with it, and my quarter horse was also in one when i bought him at age 7 he has always neck reined and he is 17 now. Ive never had a problem, I wasnt aware that is was a more "harsh" bit, It was my understanding that the bit gives a horse a signal before tightening kind of to prepare them for stopping,turning,etc. But bits is someting i'm certainly no expert in, my exp. has been good with it, but i also have very light hands and min. contact with my horses mouth.
