Please tell me this, a 3 year old racks/not speed racking, deep reach behind with natural animation in front. If you slow them down a bit, is a running walk feasible? This is not a show horse.

Not sure if you would call that a true running walk but probably a good flat walk. My OTSTB has a walk that keeps up with the Walkers we ride with but he doesn't have a deep head nod just a light nod to counter balance and his over reach is not as deep as the Walkers.

Your are right about what they are calling a rack in the first video. That's not a rack. It's broken gait. If one of my horses did that they'd go to the glue factory. Here's a racking horse.

Now for any of you good with video captures and timing, the distance between those posts is 10 ft. If you do you math, you'll find
