  2. All good thoughts G. Or I should say "in...

    All good thoughts G. Or I should say "in general" those are good thoughts. And I would add that what ever the innate gait the horse presents at liberty - it will naturally change under saddle. ...

    OH - one more - sorry to keep adding posts.

    Lateral verses diagonal pairing 'preference' has recently been identified with a specific gene. They did not identify a pace gene per se.

    One more thought - TONS of Icelandics pace. Should the breed be condemned as poor quality?
  5. Lacking bounce does not mean you are not pacing. ...

    Lacking bounce does not mean you are not pacing. A lot of these Pasos are smooth whether they pace or not. Key word: tense. The pace itself is not the problem - it is the tension that harms the...

    Delete "fair" and insert subjective, misleading and such. The dissertation of yours supports my statement. All gaits need refinement under saddle. All of them. And not just for show quality - but...
  7. Reality is the quality of gait between all the...

    Reality is the quality of gait between all the gaited breeds is about the same. A lot of racking type horses are step pacing, fox trotting etc etc - but it is easier to get a quazi good fairly...
  8. Sorry, I have to say again - I just think it is...

    Sorry, I have to say again - I just think it is unfair to the TWH breed to perpetuate this 'bad breeding' mantra when what the breed has long been suffering is bad training.

    The running walk...

    Not true Malda. Tension causes the pace in just about any laterally gaited horse. There are a lot of good ones out there.

    Wishing you all the best Preacher. You be YOU! Allright! And the answers will come, day by day.

    One of the greatest accomplishments in riding is exactly what Natalie describes. They were lovely. And her pictures that accompany this statement fully support this. It is a higher ground they...

    My goodness there sure does seem to be a whole bunch of crazies outside of the little world of "stack and show" land. I mean a whole mess of 'em. Lordy be.

    Those hinds are indeed the real horror of the stacked show... and "they" do not see it.

    Well Preacher - I get you and am very fond of you and your voice in this. I am most appreciative of all that you have done and admire the courage it took to do all that you have done. And I have...

    Since some might not read it (^) - long story short is vets are not going to be supporting the stacked falsehoods anymore. And those Vets that used to support the stacking, are now fessing up. ...

    It was brilliant.
  19. I think you need to realize that the problem you...

    I think you need to realize that the problem you have is in seeing that no one views the bowl and its contents as anything with appeal. Champagne Watchout was and is a very well used and presented...

    ^ BGB's post is worth the look -especially the closing:





    "Please trust me when I say it takes a village. Many people have given many years toward seeing that the soring be no more. All...

    Y'all. There are many horses with many problems. There are breeds with tremendous issues. There are people who fight to right the wrongs. They deserve credit. Whether you like them or their horse...

    Gringo - the point you miss is the potential for the stacked crowd to part with more legal fees. Seems to be a big drain on their pocket. That and purple mess.
  23. Yes, many people outside of walking horse world...

    Yes, many people outside of walking horse world know of this cause because of that ride. And I am sure Nathan thought of it (muchas credit and thanks to whoe ever thought of it). Who knows, maybe...

    See. That is the blindness. They think the entire world is wrong about the crawl. It burns them that the Watchout ride was the shot across the bow that it was and that it got such public...
