Question Was that a rack? (YouTube video)

At about 35 seconds in, was that a rack?
I have such a hard time telling...
Sorry it's not better quality video, but it's all I have :(

I... Think so? It looks like one but I couldn't follow her feet very well. "An easy way to tell the difference between a RW and a rack is running walk has a larger overstride behind and a deeper head nod with a fairly lever top line. It has four evenly spaced beats. It has a glidey back and forth motion. A rack has the same footfalls with a more ventroflexed back, a higher head set, less head nod and less overstride." I found that on another site when I was trying to figure out what my gelding was doing with his feet. It looks very similar to him with the short quick strides and high head. A rack can be super fun to ride in my opinion :) Hope that helps!

It looks like a little one to me. This website might help you identify racks for future reference. Racking Gait

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

That makes a lot more sense to me the the videos I've watched on all of the different saddle gaits. I'll keep watching her and if I can snag a better video, I'll post it.

Thanks :)

I was thinking that it was too, just for a couple seconds before she turned away, but I *want* it to be there and I have a hard time telling.

Thanks for the link!
