    If you look at my photos, you can see that he's not pacing.. :3
    He can pace too, of course, but that's not what he's doing there...

    I wasnt directly addressing the photo. I was clearing up the part about what standardbreds do as a gait. They "pace". Even trotters have the ability to pace. Standardbreds don't have any other given special gait but the pace. Just was clearing that up.

    Well, I asked what my standie was doing xD
    But if he's only having pace, what's the gait he does that'ds not pace but still as much of a gait as you can have?
    Trotters here can't pace.. only some standardbred (''american trotters'') have it, but usually trotters here doesn't. We don't realy have any pacing races either.

    Then instead of your two beat lateral gait(pace), he would have the four beat lateral gait. It has different names: rack, amble, told, gait... I'm sure you could get away with calling it a rack.

    If your balance is not right, Saddlebreds, and so I have heard TWHs can get pacey.

    I have a five gaited Saddlebred.

    I've figured it's a lateral four beat, but I want to know wich one :P Or wich ones because he has at least two different..O___o
    He has a strong two beat pace as well..

    (I can't call it rack/tölt in sweden without getting all icelandic horse people on my back because they don't think he has a pure enough tölt since he's not moving exactly like theirs.. and theirs are the only right lateral four beat there is and you guys are stupid to name the ''unpure'' variations as well :P According to them.. x) They're funny. No offence Sissimus :P)

    I think the Tolt is the term specific to the Icelandic gait, and we would call that a rack.

    I would call it a rack.

    This is a Saddlebred at the rack. http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h1...d/112_3897.jpg

    Is your horse fast at this? I'm just curious.

    Hah, you could call it a slow gait, but then you would have some snitty Saddlebred person come on here "That is not a true slow gait." Meh meh meh.

    Hey, tell those people that only peasants used ride "Torture Horses"(horses that can only trot).

    I havn't ridden him much in it sionce he's still very green, can't trot well or canter under saddle yet and we're mostly working in walk to build the right muscles and balance before we'll try the other, regular gaits and later probably the extra ones..:3 I'm in no hurry and I'll just ride on the trail anyway so.. xD

    He has a slow four beat gait (latest image of him) looks almost like walk on the photo and he has only done it once under rider, and I think once when he was held after a carriage; but it was a diffucult angle to see :P
    Then he has a much faster one too, it has more of a pace beat to it but it's not a two beat pace (Image on the first page of this thread - he can go faster than that too in it). I read about something called ''stepping pace'' and it seemed to fit on the faster one? On the slow one he has three or two feet on the ground at all times, and it doesn't have the pace rythm the first one has. (the side with both legs on the ground or almost on the ground looks like pace, but the lifted frontleg breaks it)

    And then there is the two beat pace..it's actually quite comfortable but you swing so much to the sides.. xD And it's so fast.. x)

    I'd love to but it's no use.. xD they still think standardbreds will break in two if you dare to sit on their backs, and that any extra gait that's not performed on an icelandic horse and is ''pure'' tölt is harmful for the horse no matter how you train it. (Talking about everyne riding 'normal'' horses x)

    xD
    You got me all wrong xD I've always been told, tölt-Icelandic word for the icelandic gait !
    And then there are a truckload of words for other breed's gaits
    Aaaaand, the thing I don't understand about the american gaited breeds is that they have different names for speed variations and count them as seperate gaits.. 0_o
    It's the Icelanders who have different names for unpure versions (that is trotty/pacy tölt)


    And we know we are totally awesome 8)

    But the thing I didn't know is that you call it tölt where you are from, but because you do, I don't see a problem with you calling it tölt.

    Am I making myself clear here ?
