About this title


Enjoy a comfortable long-distance ride on a well-trained gaited horse and you’ll be surprised at how easygoing these handsome animals can be. But unique challenges can arise when horse owners more familiar with the standard walk, trot, and canter try to train these complex and multigeared horses to gait correctly. Author Lee Ziegler guides riders through the finer points of developing and maintaining these extra gaits, using humane training methods that stress patience and good horsemanship. 

From the Back Cover:

Discover the comfort of easy gaits!

It's easy to fall in love with gaited horses, says author Lee Ziegler, and not just because they tend to be handsome animals with good dispositions. More important, their special gaits are comfortable to ride over long distances (unlike the jarring trot), making them a trail rider's dream come true.

Whether it's the running walk of the Tennessee Walker, the fox trot of the Missouri Fox Trotter, the Rocky Mountain Horse's saddle gait, the Icelandic Horse's tolt, the Paso Fino's largo, or the Peruvian Paso's sobreandando, each easy gait can be smooth and delightful to experience.

Riding and training one of these horses, however, may be like changing from a one-gear pedal bicycle to a 20-speed model. Easy-gaited horses are complex, multi-geared individuals and present unique challenges for a horse owner who is more familiar with the simple walk, trot, and canter. Ziegler guides you through the fine points of developing and maintaining these extra gaits, using humane training methods that stress good horsemanship.

The book includes:

* Charts comparing the different gaits

* Best equipment for easy-gaited horses

* Ground exercises to develop coordination, flexibility, and trust

* Solutions to common gait problems

* Mounted exercises to improve the easy gaits

* Sample lesson plans
