Todd Bergen is a renowned reining trainer and competitor.

He not only is a very accomplished trainer and competitor he also is a very kind man that lends a helping hand when needed. In this video he explaines the dynamics of a lope and how it’s a three beat gait.
When loping a horse you need to consider that they need even strides, none of his body parts working against him and consistency. Todd explains it as if the horse was inside a box or a frame, if a body part of the horse is pushing against that box something is not working correctly. Having all the parts work together allows for a pretty picture when you are doing your big fasts, small slows and those run downs for your mile longs slides!
