Hi Everyone, hope your having an amazing day!
Some back issues of the on-line magazine " Sound Advocate"
are now available to the non-member public.
I did write an article in the July/Aug. issue "Developing the Natural Running walk".
Here is the link to that issue.
I am and always have been from my very roots in my gaited horse career which started in 1978 ( being non-gaited prior) a natural gaited purist , not a re-formed user of mechanical manifested methods in how I train horses, I've never used those methods by choice.This article explains how to work from the top of the horse down, shaping the top line first to effect how the legs will perform, not from the bottom up on the horse.
I hope it will have some value in helping folks teaching their own horses in a healthy manner, and also achieve great running walks!
Here is the link to the Sept./Oct. Issue and the fun of this issue is the Sound Advocate went color. Lots of other great articles too!
In this issue the topic I wrote about is" Straightness, what it is and why is it important to the gaited horse".
My hopes and goals in writing are to write with an ease of understanding as possible for the readers. It's been my feeling to write with overly complicated terms and descriptions does a dis-service to the readers and to do so just feeds a writers ego, while not always coming through well in helping horses and people. I so hope I am getting that done but your input is welcome and ideas for future topics are welcome. I also THANK the editors at the SA and all those from years gone by as my writing has progressed!
