Part I of Freedom to Gait gives you the knowledge of equine biomechanics as it relates to gait, and offers you a fundamental understanding of how your horse carries himself and what is needed to unlock his natural gait potential. Part II gives you the tools you'll need through natural and classical horsemanship, to engage his mind and become a willing partner that offers you his gait. Part III combines the knowledge of biomechanics and the tools of horsemanship to provide you with a step by step plan, both to determine where your horse is having difficulty and how you can help him naturally correct his own carriage, balance and gait. I address a variety of the most commonly seen gait problems as well as dedicate a healthy portion on developing the canter in your gaited horse. Part IV is dedicated to the naturally brilliant walking horse, and helping those who wish to develop their horse's potential for the show ring without gimmicks or mechanical enhancements.
