Not so much racing. I have Tennessee Walkers that I ride for pleasure and are a pleasure to ride. Gaited horse people know what I mean.
Work in Lex, been to Somerset. Really like the stone walls and green land here.
Not a dig at you Texans. I used to visit my grandfather in Salton City, CA and the desert has a beauty of its own. Like ocotillo blooming.
The desert does have it's own kind of beauty that only it can produce. I have lived in CA for over 6 yrs now and work in the desert but live in the mountains. With your gait remark, my wife used to ride Peruvian Paso. What a gait they have that is so natural.
