    I always say that the rack feels like a washing machien. The paso are out of this world to ride. Because of the single foot it is so smooth and like being on a cloud. I have seen all of them canter. I belave that is an urbane legion or rider prefrence. I love my rackers canter it is so smoth. Oh also the legs move diffrent. Th right front and back move together. Where with a trot it is right front and left back.

    The Peruvian Horse does have what is referred to as "Termino".. It is their distingue front leg action. Some people think it is called paddling but is actually Termino. "Paddling" in a horse is an unwanted trait and very different from The Peruvian, Termino.. The Paso Fino do not have this Termino but more of a straight up and down front leg action.

    My Foxtrotter mare does this too, but it's more like cantering on the front end and pacing behind. Her back end gets really swinging side to side and the front end is cantering. My friend says it looks smooth, but as the rider I can tell you it's a lot like a hard pace and not very comfortable at all!

    But I still get all giggly when she does it, because it's just plain WEIRD!
