I just wanted to comment that the article on the racking gaits along with all of the animation is just SUPERB! I sure would like to see future articles with the animation for all the different gaits. The animation is what brought the article to life. I've owned gaited horses for ten years and it would have been nice to have seen articles with animation like this one to help train one's eyes. It is so hard to educate newbies and even my veterinarian about the gait spectrum. Quote from my vet, "Once those legs get moving everywhere all at once, I just get lost!" Awesome! I hope to see more!
I would just like to thank you for your book. I got it as a gift. I started to apply some of the things you suggested and my half breed walking horse started to rack like he was ment to do it all his life. I figure if that is what he is happy doing then let him do it. I breed him for a sure footed trail horse (Arab-Walking Horse Cross) but with your tips he jumped into it like he has been waiting for me to catch up all these years. I can't thank you enough. My daughter has also applied your teachings to her young five gainted Saddlebred and he is responding extremley well with an amazing power and presence. Once again your book is amazing. Look for us at the Worlds Champion Horse Show in Louisville in the next couple of years. I am sure my daughter will be sure to thank you when she takes the tile. Have a wonderful day. I know that we will have wonderful rides thanks to you.
