Equus a gaited horse moves completly differently.
In the trot a gaited horse will move both leg on one side forwards and then both legs on the other side (so for example Off hind and off fore will move forwards together).
A normal (non gaited) horse (like my lad) will move opposite legs forward, so the off fore and the near hind will move forwards at the same time.
This shows a good example of a gaited horse moving in trot:
Notice that both legs on the side near us are forwards and both legs on the side away from us are back.
Sorry for taking this off track Tess. My next post will be back on track promise!
