ok so im going to try saddleseat. but sonny wont gait XD he did it when i went to my riding bud's house after the winter,so i guess he dos it for new horses...ill try getting pics sometime either today or tomorrow of what he does when asked to gait. i guess he gaits but its not like this:
its more of this:. so does anyone have any exp with gaited/saddleseat that could help me,or give me tips?


Also he jumps over trot poles lol i rode him yesterday and he acted like it was a bounce. ive tried that walk over it,then trot over it thing,didnt work. he only does it at the trot or canter so...help? XD its actually quite cute, he even bucked a little after it,it was like "look at what i did" like he was pleased with himself XD he acts like a 2 year old sometimes,even though he's 19

Well first of all this horse is trotting, not racking...and you don't need a gaited horse to do saddleseat.

Trot the pole on a circle until he stops jumping it.

love the fray (10/8/2014)
i was told that you needed a gaited horse,and that they gait.......................................

(I think you said your horse is a QHxASB) Saddlebreds are either shown 3 gaited or 5 gaited. 3 gaited horses perform just walk/trot/canter; 5 gaited is when you need them to also have the slow gait and rack. Other breeds such as Morgans, Arabs, etc are not gaited but are often shown saddleseat.

You can't just teach a horse to be the quality of the horses you posted; they're bred for that and born with conformation conducive to saddleseat riding. A QH cross? Probably not. If it were just a matter of training and none of natural ability, horses of the quality you're posting wouldn't be so special.

ah ok. i was wondering why their were 3 and 5 gaited SBs. i know he was trained to gait,and does it himself when he wants to. He is a QH/ASB
and yea,i know you cant teach the quality of horses i had posted.
i just want to enter some local shows in saddleseat,maybe even show him one year at the county fair. and id love for him to just gait.....

I took saddle seat lessons for 3 years (and showed all over the place) and I rode show quality SBs and Morgans, but I never gaited them. You don't have to have them gait to show saddle seat. Those trots in the pics are actually artificially taught, they don't do that naturally, and even then they're high quality horses need for it like where I rode they bred, raised, trained and showed them (even at world levels). If you have any questions about saddle seat feel free to pm me! I don't know if you've ridden saddle seat yet but I would recommend taking a few lessons in it because its very different just from English, even the saddle feels really weird at first and there's not as much security as even a English saddle.
