Check Out This Trot!

My BO's main saddle horse is a 6 year old OTTB. She is crazy athletic, and has an amazing extended trot that is faster than most horses canter and very difficult to ride. After trying unsuccessfully to capture it on camera, I finally did on Saturday! I think she's 6+ inches above the ground.

It's great - it looks amazing, it's flashy and actually correct (the angles are almost the same on front and hind legs - not like top dressage stars elevate the front but the angles are thrown off)

That is one magnificent horse.

Whoa... That's amazing. You wanna trade horses ;P. Reggie's trot is bumpy and unbalanced as a pogo stick. Literally.... But seriously that is impressive :).

That is one beautiful floating trot!

It's really hard to ride, throws you out of the saddle. I need to get a video one day. Her mother is a very nice mover, but she got the trot from her sire. There is actually a pause mid stride, when she hits max extension and is suspended in mid air. Very cool to watch. I have been at her trot while other horses beside me were at a fast canter.

A friend of mine has a huge TB that trots just like that too. Literally floats huge strides over the ground. It's ridiculous.
