Here's a great pic showing how they move and what their gate looks like. The rider is my friend Becky. She was in a Country Pleasure class.



When I'm just a spectator, I can't resist riding around before and after the classes, lol!

I will mention it to him. I'm not sure I'd stay out of the saddle, though, if he advised against it. Not that I'm hard-headed or anything like that!

I have an 8 stall barn and some horse poo, but no horses. Will convert it to a woodshop. One dog is plenty for me.

love that pic of you and the horse. You look like a giddy school girl . And the horse is absolutely stunning!

Yeah as soon as you mentioned it...it clicked the funky gait. The high knees, it looks bone jarring but they are suppose to be a smooth ride right?

Hehe! Yeah, I'm kind of in my own world.

Most of the time they are very smooth. Sometimes referred to as a 'glide ride'.

I would love to have an 8 stall barn. Even a 2 stall barn. Yeah, the woodshop will be whole lot easier to maintain, lol!
