Have you ever wanted to see exactly what training a pacey horse to gait looks like? Now you can. In this dvd, I show you the complete training, from bumpy to smooth with a 12 year old Rocky Mountain gelding.
I explain what I am doing as I train this horse over 7 days. I mainly use the ground poles, so can see how I use them and important things to know when working with a pacey horse.
