|Alabama reg. tennessee walking paint
Age: 4. I just ride him-but he's had ownwer for 2 1/4 years.
We ride in halter type leather bridle with a moderatedly curved bit with
a canadian bounty saddle- stock. In a large round pasture by beginner rider.
Question: I have ridden on and off all of my life. About a week and a half ago I started riding this tw paint for a friend to get him in shape.He mainly worked feild trials-hunting before, but had not been ridden in about 5-6 months he had gained lots of weight.
I cannot seem to get him into what shound be his 'natural" tennessee
walking horse gait-Don't know if it's all his new weight or me. His owner
said there was no particular singnal she'd given to get him into his walk-
he just did it with other tennesse walkers around She can't ridde b/c of
a surgury- and I am riding alone -no other horses around.
please reply thanks-
