The Gaits.

June 28, 2007

The horse/pony have 4 different gaits; walk, trot, canter and gallop. The walk is a 4 beat and speed of the walk is about 4 mph.


The trot is a 2 beat gait and goes about an average of 8 mph. The trot is like a slow jog.


The canter is a 3-beat gait the canter is fastert then the trot and slower then the gallop.


The gallop is like the canter but much faster and the 3-beat canter changes to a 4-beat gait.
