USMMA member Susan Neumann recommended an episode on saddles and saddle fitting for gaited horses. If you can find the video from last week on Rick's website, it was wonderful. Filmed with horse trainer Larry Whitesell, a gaited horse trainer for many years, it followed along the same lines as our Mangalarga Marchador clinic with Kate Bar in April. He uses dressage and suppling to get a better balanced horse and also a better gait.
