  2. Horse Breeds, Registrations and Brands
    Hello, all my lovely friends. In the next year, I'm planning on buying another horse.. but I can't decide if I want to look into buying a gaited horse or not.

  5. Western Riding Queries & Competition sub forums
    What are all the movements for telling your horse what to do through legs? I trained with a person who didnt teach me the best of ways and I am wanting to be educated so I can properly ride my horse. I know to turn you use the opposite leg and move it back but what about the other movements?

So I was wondering if anyone who...
