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.

Sorry, but as soon as I read the first post in this page, I laguhed. But not really out loud. This is too funny. This is a great topic by the way. Great suggestion!

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!
