Cha Cha and Olivia are Paso Fino's and they both walk, trot, corto, largo and gallop. Cha Cha will fino if he has a rider that knows the right cues.
Sissy is a Trote y Galope. Walk, trote and galope are her gaits.
Quote from the American Trote and Trocha Association about the trote and galope:
TROTE: A two-beat movement made of the alternate beat of successive diagonal legs, which produces a dry sound as the legs hit the ground in the following manner: tas tas tas tas. |
GALOPE: A movement of diagonal steps executed in a three beat series: the first beat is executed by the impulse of one hind leg, a second beat is characterized by the landing of the opposite hind leg and its diagonal fore leg, a third beat marks the landing of the opposite foreleg from the one that initiated the three beat movement. The sound produced is: catorce, catorce, catorce, or one two, three, one two three, one two three.
