    It is all very confusing
    Canter-3 beat- stökk
    Gallop- 4 beat- lull ?
    But that can´t be it because lull a whole different gait mix...
    the only gaits i´ve been tought are 4 beat are walk and tölt ( in the icys)
    I think I just need some sleep

    In the gallop, the middle step of the canter (with diagonal fore and hind hitting together) becomes two steps, with (if I recall correctly) the hind hitting the ground before the fore.

    I always thought the gallop was distinquished from the other gaits in that it is the only one where at one point all 4 feet are off the ground at once. Is that correct?

    I think there is that time in the canter too, but not for as long, but I could be wrong... It's been one of those brain dead days if you know what I mean

    You can get a moment of suspension in the canter too. The difference between the canter and gallop is the middle footfall becoming two footfalls. I know that when training a horse for dressage, you have to be careful that a very extended canter doesn't blur into a gallop.

    I love how apple is in it! And then you put your mouse over it and it says "a fruit"

    The first time I saw that it cracked me up!
