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.

Knowledge is the key to solutions. Communications are the key to partnership. With these objectives, Anita Howe has given us a road map to understanding the gaited horse; to work in partnership and be gifted with all the natural gaits within them. • Part I of Freedom to Gait gives you the knowledge of equine biomechanics as it relates to gait. This fundamental understanding of how your horse carries and uses himself readily shows you what is needed for him to release his natural gaiting abilities. • Part II gives you the tools of communication and partnership you'll need to engage his mind for a willing and eager partner that offers you his gait. • Part III combines the knowledge of biomechanics and the tools of communication to provide you with a step by step training plan, to determine where your horse is experiencing difficulty and how you can help him naturally correct and release his carriage, balance and gait. Anita addresses a variety of the most commonly seen gait problems as well as dedicating a full chapter on developing the canter in your gaited horse. • Part IV focuses on the walking horses and their particular needs of impulsion and balance at gait to help those who wish to develop their horse’s athletic brilliance and show potential. Learn how your walking horse can achieve greater athleticism and brilliance at gait, soundly and humanely, using this willing and caring partnership to offer, build and polish his gait without mechanical gimmicks or influences.

"This bulletin gives concise information regarding the breeds of light horses and will be of particular usefulness to the farmer in those sections where light horses are preeminently fitted for his work, such as mountainous and hilly sections and where there are markets for horses for saddle and driving purposes. The breeds discussed are the Arabian, Thoroughbred, Standardbred, American Saddle, Morgan, Hackney, French Coach, German Coach, and Cleveland Bay. Of these, the Standardbred, American Saddle, and Morgan breeds were developed in this country. The origin, development, general appearance and adaptability of the light breeds are discussed. There is no best breed of light horses. Some breeds are superior to others in certain respects and one breed may be better adapted than another to certain local conditions. The general requirements for a particular section and the popularity of a certain breed in a certain locality should receive the utmost consideration in choosing a breed."--Page [2].

Conditioning the Gaited Horse for Endurance

Conditioning the Gaited Horse for Endurance

But now on the mend she is riding and training again, and preparing to enter competition again and perhaps tackle the Tevis Cup once again soon. This work book for training the gaited horse for endurance is a natural for her.

Gaited horses are gaining in popularity in the sport of endurance. But what is the difference between these breeds and the other more popular breed? Do we have to do something different in order to compete with them? Who better to tackle this question than life-long rider-trainer of Tennessee Walking Horses, Ms. Reed. Improving condition comes with interval training, a technique illustrated in detail with numerous graphs, showing heart rate recordings from the workouts of 4 horses during interval training in the heat. One 26 mile workout is shown, then the before and after graphs of this horse are compared, showing scientifically, that this method works to lower working heart rate and get faster recoveries. All this can be done with a few simple tools and the workbook graph pages provided to print out. Morgan has had horses most of her life. At age 5, she moved with her family to an 800 acre cattle ranch in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. There she rode and trained horses as her passion. Now years later, she trains horses and rides in endurance competition. Her horses are bred and trained by herself, and are almost exclusively Tennessee Walking Horses. A few years ago cancer threatened her life. But now on the mend she is riding and training again, and preparing to enter competition again and perhaps tackle the Tevis Cup once again soon. This work book for training the gaited horse for endurance is a natural for her. this is how she got, with very little means, a big Tennessee Walking horse mare to a handful of 50 mile endurance rides and the 100 mile Tevis cup on a shoe string budget. It can be done, although it wasn't easy. She wrote this book to help others be successful with their gaited horses, too. To pass on her experience even though she might not be able to compete again herself.
