I have a Racking mare. She is pacey since she was shown in Hunters (witch I don't 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 don't 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!
