Looking for reputable MFT trainer in Tx
Hi- I'm looking for a reputable Fox Trotter trainer in Texas hopefully sw of Ft Worth or DFW area. I'm new to this breed and looking for help with my MFT.
Please reply with contact info. Thank :-)
What exactly is your issue? You might not need a breed specific trainer.
I don't the horse has an issue it's me really. This is my first gaited horse and I not sure if I'm riding her right or giving the right cues. I'm not sure of the rhythm of the walking gait. I don't want to mess her up since she is only 6. I know the head bobbing is what I'm looking for, but not sure how to keep her in that beat without pushing her into the trot. I know that's a no-no. I just need some reassurance that what I'm feeling is correct.
There is a gaited horse forum called "gaited horse sense" that might be helpful to you. I know what you're going thru, I have a RMH (my first gaited horse) that does not gait well to begin with & my inexperience is certainly not helping her. Also have a MFT who naturally has a good head nodding, ear flopping foxtrot and will gait for anybody, no expertise required. It has been my experience that if the horse has a good natural gait, you are not going to screw it up overnight. We moved to AR from DFW a few years ago, i didn't know anyone who rode gaited horses in Tx....got up here and almost everyone I know rides a gaited horse. I was stuck riding drag on my pokey QH EVERY trail ride. Welcome to the gaited horse community!
