    Definately a nice smooth slow collected canter.

    I say its between racehorse running and prancing! Boo has a beautiful prance for his long legs. He gets excited and starts prancing sideways when I don't let him go. Especially, when walking around the racetrack. He loves to run. In my opinion, if he were dying, the last thing he would do is race around the track. He has so much heart it seems wrong! I love him! LOL....

    My little pony, My little pony, You'll always be in my heart!

    By the way, my cousin wanted to dye Blu pink with a purple mane so I could have my own my little pony! Haha...

    An extended trot is fun, and of course so is a nice, smooth canter...

    But I love the running walk. When I ride this one Tennessee Walker on trails, it's so nice... Particularly since his canter isn't very smooth, even for a TW... :roll:

    Also, speaking of gaits, I was wondering if any of you had an actual name for an awkward transition between a trot and a canter... You might be beyond that sort of thing, but "tranters" as we call them are common for the trail horses we rent for an hour at a time. They're kind of fun; they definitely keep you on your toes.

    Hmmm, tough one. Usually doesnt matter to me as long as I am on a horse lol trotting, cantering, galloping...i love them all :)

    If I had to choose I would have to say a nice loose reined smooth canter. One of the rocking horse ones my mare has one of those canters where you could almost fall asleep while riding (don't try this at home folks lmao) having said that, I nice extended trot is good too ;)
