|Kentucky 4 year old Tennessee Walker,
ridden in 4" shank and plantation saddle in fields by average rider.
Question: the gelding used to have a fantastic, wonderful smooth gait....
From Panelist Laura
There are several things that could contribute to your horse becoming pacey -
it could be the bit, the amount of collection he is ridden with, the type of
shoes he is wearing, the angles of his feet, the length of his feet, and/or
the terrain. You might want to start the process of elimination with putting
him back in the wonder bit first, then check his feet.
