I had my third riding lesson today and had a lot of fun. I rode a different horse and we worked on the basics like turning and controlling the horse. She then put me on a line and we cantered a bit, which was so much fun! Kind of scary at first, but I did it. So while I was riding, the instructor was telling me the different gaits and stuff. She said that the walk was a 4 beat gait, and that the trot was a 3? Not really sure. Can someone explain that to me? So when the rear left hoof goes forward, the front left hoof also goes forward at the walk?
