Hello Farncisco,

Thank you for writing.

You can control at what distance the labels will be rendered on the LinearAxis, by setting the MajorStep property:
public Form1()
{
    InitializeComponent();
 
    BarSeries barSeries = new BarSeries("Performance", "RepresentativeName");
    barSeries.Name = "Q1";
    barSeries.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(177, "Harley"));
    barSeries.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(128, "White"));
    barSeries.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(143, "Smith"));
    barSeries.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(111, "Jones"));
    barSeries.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(118, "Marshall"));
    this.radChartView1.Series.Add(barSeries);
 
    BarSeries barSeries2 = new BarSeries("Performance", "RepresentativeName");
    barSeries2.Name = "Q2";
    barSeries2.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(153, "Harley"));
    barSeries2.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(141, "White"));
    barSeries2.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(130, "Smith"));
    barSeries2.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(88, "Jones"));
    barSeries2.DataPoints.Add(new CategoricalDataPoint(109, "Marshall"));
    this.radChartView1.Series.Add(barSeries2);
 
    CartesianGrid grid = this.radChartView1.GetArea<CartesianArea>().GetGrid<CartesianGrid>();
    this.radChartView1.GetArea<CartesianArea>().Orientation = Orientation.Horizontal;
    grid.DrawVerticalStripes = true;
    grid.DrawHorizontalStripes = false;
     
    LinearAxis verticalAxis = barSeries.HorizontalAxis as LinearAxis;
    if (verticalAxis != null)
    {
        verticalAxis.MajorStep = 10;
        verticalAxis.LabelFitMode = AxisLabelFitMode.Rotate;
    }
}


I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
