Stepping Pace vs. Pace Vs. Rack
OK, I have a REALLY hard time telling the difference between gaits.
I know that a stepping pace is easier to sit than a true pace, which is impossible to sit properly-- you can't sit it and can't post to it.
Can people show me GOOD examples of each gait? The only one I can really distinguish well is a running walk.
If anyone can tell me what this horse is doing when I ask him to gait, that'd be great. That horse isn't able to rack(which is what he WOULD do) because of a leg injury. I think my coach said it was a stepping pace, but I'd like to be able to see WHY it's a stepping pace, if that makes sense.
