Red face Help for non-native english speakers

I have few questions about horse related stuff that I don't understand completly or am not sure if I got it right. I think there may be some other people too and this could be our I don't understand thread? :P

Is there a difference between canter and gallop or does it mean the same?

Sweet food means every food that contains sugar or only specific one?

Neck reining means that horse obeys you with just pressing rein on one side of his neck?

I'll add it more later...
Thanks for answers :)

It's RAINING!

Another question:
Some people say they feed grass hay. What other hay could it be? Since the hay is dry grass it doesn't make sense to me.

Basically, a canter is a three beat gait and a gallop is a four beat gait.

Sweet food means every food that contains sugar or only specific one?
From my understanding Sweet Feed is a type of grain mix that you can buy. It contains molasses, oats, dried corn, etc.

Neck reining means that horse obeys you with just pressing rein on one side of his neck?
Neck reining is when the rider is holding the reins with one hand with a considerable loop in the reins. The rider moves their hand to the direction that they want to go and the horse turns. This, however, takes alot of training to get to that point. The horses can feel the change in the reins and the body of the rider.

I hope this helps :)

This link explains it pretty well. Hays for Horses and Their Characteristics - eXtension

Haha, in my language gallop means 3 beat gait, and for 4 beat it's another word that doesn't make any sense in english.


I've heard only about grass hay and alfalfa.

A canter is the slower gait that has 3 beats. See this video at 1:30

A gallop is also called a run where there are 4 beats (much like you see with racehorses)

Sweet food means every food that contains sugar or only specific one?

Around my area, sweet feed means any feed that is a combination of grains that also has either sugar or molasses added.

Neck reining means that horse obeys you with just pressing rein on one side of his neck?

Basically, yes. The horse moves away from the rein pressure on the side of it's neck much the same way it moves away from leg pressure.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yup, galop (in my language) means canter :P

Neck reining really seems very useful
Thanks :)
