Gooosh, he's muscular! Gorgeous. :)

This is probably a dumb question...I've seen horses racking on youtube and all, but never in "real life"...is the rack like a very very fast/animated running walk? Can multiple breeds do it?

I've always been confused about the rack...

Thanks for the complement Lori. The rack is performed by several breeds. For the Paso Fino it is called the Largo. The right legs look as if they are in unison together, same as the left. The horse lifts his right rear and right front simultaneously but the rear gets set down first. On the surface the rack looks similar to the running walk but it is a different sequence. The front hooves are lifted higher in the air in the rack than the running walk, but not by a whole lot.

Morgans are like Saddlebreds... some are gaited and some aren't. Gaited Saddlebreds can still trot, and are shown at the trot, slow-gait, rack, and canter. I'm pretty sure it's the same way with Morgans.
