    Hmmm....that would prob explain it then. Ya thunder appears to be 'hopping' at some points too lol, but it don't know if that is the fifth gate.

    What exactly do you mean by their fifth gait? Is it sort of like a pace (what standardbreds do?) or is it something completely different?

    I think the 5th gait is the rack

    Its very interesting! I think I just saw some videos that someone posted in the video section of this forum. It said racking, and of course I didn't put one and one together. It looks like an interesting, but comfy gait.

    Do you train them to go into that gait, or does it just come to them naturally?

    Hmmmm I think it can be trained, but it is mostly natural.

    How many gaits outside of the 4 are there???
