    Hey, question about it. If I did the walk trot hack, does that mean I have to do the walk trot games? We are fine cantering by ourselves (like in games), but soon as I canter in the hack ring (or or near any other horse for that matter) my goof ball plays up.

    I was wondering about that, but in reverse :D
    Having not really done any games, my horse may not cope too well if we have to canter. Too many scarey obstacles :eek:

    It would be preferred if you can stay in the same group as some may question why you did walk and trot hacking but had no problem cantering around in the games.

    Thats a bit silly IMO, people questioning that. Hacking and games are separate events therefore require different skill sets and discipline so to paint them with the same brush is silly. Not all horses can canter calmly around on the bit, so why would you comepete in a walk/trot/ canter class? But in games, it doesnt matter how high they shove their head (till you cope it in the head, then thats just not cool). The day is also about supporting the second chance horse gang, not winning ribbons, so why should people question such a thing?

    But hey, if that's the rules, they shall be followed :)

    *runs off to go practice not breaking gait*

    Ever watched games ponies at the start of a race? Most are dancing on their toes and feeding of each other. I would have thought most horses who couldn't handle cantering in a hack group, couldn't handle horse cantering/galloping on either side of them (and rather close) in games. I think it's only fair to stick to WT or WTC.

    Skittled, it doesn't matter so much if they don't canter round as long as they canter safely (which is more likely in hacking than games). There will be lots of people whose horses don't go round!
