My Mare Gaiting - no clue what it is.

I had posted a video of my mare gaiting quite a while ago but I just found this different one that her previous owner sent to me of her riding. The previous video I posted wasn't a good angle and you couldn't really see what gait she was doing... however most replies to that thread were all that she was doing a "rack" ... being unfamiliar with the different gaits I have no clue so maybe this video will be better as it's more from the side so you can actually see the sequence of her footfalls. I still don't know how to tell so if y'all could help that'd be great! :-D

I haven't had the pleasure of riding her just yet... I didn't have the courage when we first got her and then she was too heavy in foal.. and now she's nursing.. although pretty soon I should be able to get her in the round pen to get her back in shape... she's become rather flabby and lazy LOL She's got no topline and her belly is quite round still... so hopefully with some roundpen work she'll get back in shape soon. :)

If the horse is not nodding its head, it's probably doing some form of rack.

Not A Rack. Looks alot like a Fox trot or a Stepping pace

I saw that horse for sale. :) Most of their stock is very pacey or trotty. Looks like she's doing a stepped pace.

Looks like she starts out in a step pace and then breaks into a not-quite-perfectly-diagonal trot...
