I just purchased a yearling pacing filly and she is real high steppy in front. She doesn't want to stride out at all. She also doesn't have much swing behind. Any suggestions???

  Throw a saddle on her and call her a Paso.

  Seriously, on a horse this young not much you can do without risking lameness problems if you try to correct what is probably a conformation flaw.

Could be conformation problems or could be an adjustment is in order. Babies can hurt themselves and misalign hips, shoulders, etc. Try seeking a well known trustworthy horse chiropractor, they may be able to help her out.

I think you could spend all the money and time in the world trying to "fix" something that you shouldn't really be worrying about at this point in the horse's career.

If she can pace a mile in 2:50 right now-she is fine.  bell boots, half round half swedge behind, and proper angle adjustments  would me my fix.
