    To me it looks like a fast walk, because when the horse slows down, it is just walking. And with the trot, all 4 feet are off the ground at once at one point, and that horse has at least one foot on the ground at all times....

    It's a non-pure/broken trot. If you look at the legs, they move almost in pairs diagonally. When gaiting, they should move less in pairs and laterally. Looks like a lazy and broken trot.

    Oh you'll are right. I looked more closely and it's not a pace. I've never heard of a broken trot before. Cool

    Talking

    I did some more research on what you guys are calling a "broken trot" and I realized what you are talking about here is what I found the link to the site is included. Its ALSO known as a foxtrot like I had previously asked but this is a win win situation lol you guys are right and so am I (and don't have to worry about it being an actual TROT lol)


    Encyclopedia > Fox trot
    This article is about a horse's gait. See Foxtrot (disambiguation) for other meanings. Binomial name Equus caballus The Horse (Equus caballus) is a sizeable ungulate mammal, one of the seven modern species of the genus Equus. ... A gait can refer to: a particular way or manner of moving on foot: walking and running are the two basic human gaits; see also gait analysis and Gait (human). ... Foxtrot refers to: Foxtrot, a dance and music. ...
    Fox trot or foxtrot is a gait of a horse. It may be described as broken diagonal gait (broken trot). In this gait, a front hoof hits the ground a split second earlier than the opposite rear hoof, then a pause, then the same for the other diagonal pair of hoofs. This produces a distinctive sound, sometimes memorized by the phrase "a chunk ... of meat". This kind of gait is less joggy compared to the square trot.

    It's a running walk. He started off wanting to break into a faster gait and slowed himself down. I couldnt decide if he was a little gimpy but I think that's from the gravel or uneven ground. Probably his first speed after walk, they can usually go 2 or 3 speeds even w/out the "proper" training.

    ^ TWHs do NOT trot. On preference.
