Arrow Standardbred Gaits,

I work 2 off track standardbreds. One was a pacer and one was a trotter. Well I was working the trotter and I asked for the trot (riding). I got something completely different. It was like a really fast walk, it felt like a running walk. I don't really know how to explain it. But I thought standard breds could only pace and trot (ofcourse walk and canter). Is there an other gait? I tried to get the pacer to do it and I couldn't get him too. Im standardbred stupid, so I have no clue. The owner said she's never seen them do that before and she's been in the standbred racing business for a very long time. I would just like to know, im curious.

Well they really only have trot and pace (in racing). But sometimes when the pacers are slowing down from a pace to stop and walk, they do a funny gait like they, or when they are going from a walk to a pace. I really don't see the trotters do it often, but I have seen a few do it.

That's the only explination I can give you there without seeing it myself

Some standardbreds can gait, yes :) Crow is a trotter, tho all swedish ones are (he's born in swedish and thus a swedish trotter, but his bloodlines are american standardbred ;) )









And trot at a medium speed as well.. ;)


Ignore all the text, I'm over-analysing.. it was some of our first attempts during his training and well..he's better in the woods. But here he is.. :)

Oh hahaha, I guess our horses rack when they do that then... I don't ride,so I don't know much about all the different gaits.

I wish I could see that video. I have dialup so its nearly impossible. I had no idea they could. All I knew was they can trot or pace, never a middle ground between a walk and a trot. Its quite smooth acutally. Can only certain Standies do it?

I think maybe this is the gait my horse is doing..I will have to make a video and ask you guys..I've been told he looks like a standie. It's Buddy, if you want to take a look.
