As of this afternoon, we have 24" of snow on the ground in the field where we ride. The arena is too small & the icey footing outside in the driveway is not safe to ride that fast. Will have to wait til spring. Maybe some of the PHW Southerners or Californians would be willing to cut a video for you. Sorry....I ask myself WHY I live in Wisconsin anyway? Can't wait til spring!
I've only owned Peruvian Horses (except for one Arabian and her 3 week old National Show Horse colt that I rescued at an auction), ridden many other non gaited breeds and a couple of TN Walkers, never Icelandics though. I always admire them when I see them in breed demos, they seem to fly!
You added a topic about sobriendando. I didn't want to post there because I am no expert.....but. I have a mare that when ridden next to my other mare does the smoothest, fastest sobriendando without having to do anything to keep her there. In fact, my other mare is in a full canter & Espe is in sobriendando. It is difficult to make her canter. Our track around the 10 acre field is a foot deep with snow today, so it would be hard to get a video now. She is amazing. We have "raced" our horses trying to stay in sobriendando just playing around & my other 3 horses canter & she stays in sobriendando. We rode in an all gaited show last summer. Those little Icelandics zoomed around everyone else. It got a little dangerous & a child fell during the confusion. With the Peruvian Horses, a well collected & steady Paso Llano is desired for most riding. Sobriendando is fun & will show the true pisos of the horse as well. Each breed has it's purposes & strengths.
This is a wonderful place to learn......be patient & you will gain a wealth of knowledge. Do you know Liz Graves? Her's was the first workshop I attended many years ago after I got my first Peruvian Horse.
Firstly the horse is lame. Why put up a video of a lame horse? You already have it on your website and on your maillist.
As I said previously, I do not have the capability of storing or uploading a video and I believe that the videos and pix on this site cannot be usedc elsewhere
Your viceo clip of the Preuvian -the horse is lame and not in gait. it is "step pacing" as the late LZ would call it. Step pacing is NOT the sobreandando as I have tried to get through to the mostly TWH members on your list.
