Rocky Mountain natural gaits:
Walk - calm, relaxed, even 4 beat and ground covering
Show gait - smooth evenly timed 4 beat gait - single foot on the ground at one moment in time - gliding and moving forward with moderate speed.
Pleasure gait - also perfectly smooth evenly timed 4 beat gait - single foot on the ground at one moment in time - gliding and moving forward with great speed.
Canter - Relaxed, 3 beat, ground covering (but not fast)

My Peruvian Horse does a nice flat walk and then the Paso Llano, which is faster then a trot, but slow then a canter. That is the gait she likes best and will travel all day in it without tiring. Then comes the Sobreaondo. Thats as fast as a gallop while staying in the 4beat lateral movement. All these gaits are 4 beat laterals Very nice, and lots of fun...
