    I don't see the point of making them do those gaits anyway! They look so awkward and weird (as well as painful)!
    I agree. I LIKE TWH, but when they're flat-shod, and not made to do that God-awful gait. It's disgusting, and NOT natural at all - since when do horses trot around their paddocks flinging their feet up to their noses? I have never seen it.
    Those poor horses must never get turn-out either.

    I think what disturbs me most is that if a horse mis-steps, those 4" lifts can rip a hoof off. Why would you build a horse up like that? Who in their mind came up with that? Who thought "oh well that would be a good idea!"

    Yeah, I don't really like the look of that artificial gait. I mean look what's behind the scenes...

    Unbelievable what is done now are days and considered to be normal and standard practice. Some people really need to learn a lesson.

    This absolutely shocked me !
    I just donīt understand how someone can do that to an animal ! The horses were so obviously in pain !
    I consider myself as part of the "gaited world" but for once I am glad the Iceland is so isolated and that these methods did not reach to us. The "worst" thing in shows here are 8 oz "hoof guards" we call them, I think they are just called boots !
    And the threats to persons... this is just awful !
    But note; I do not hate this breed, and I do not think that every rider uses these methods ! Iīve learned to not jump to such conclusion's the hard way

    Yeah, I like the breed. TWH's are beautiful.
    But that 'gait' is so's cruelty.
