What is she even doing?! (video)

Cheyenne, leads, again. Yeah, I'm sorry. But what is she even doing here? I think this video caught it. I can't tell if she's crossfiring or just dramatic with her lope. She's the hardest to tell of any horse ever I think haha.

What is she?

She is paceing, not trotting...not sure if you know this but that's the first thing I noticed.


Now about that Canter she is not Cross firing but it may be because of that non-trot that she has an interesting canter, add more speed and she''l either loose balance and have to stop or be forced to canter correctly. It looks like she's cantering up more than forward.

Best of luck.

Yes! She is crossfiring. She is in the right lead on the front end and the left lead on her hind end.

She is either very uncoordinated and un-athletic or she is hurting somewhere.

She's not cross firing, watch her left fore and right hind, they move diagonally. I think what is happening here is that she's being more playful and bouncing rather than moving out properly so that left hind isn't keeping in time with everything else. It isn't right, but it isn't cross firing.

Oops, miss-saw that trot as a pace. It isn't. >.<

I think what's happening here is you have a gaited horse and so when she speeds up those hind feet for a canter they are backwards. Not sure how to fix it other than throwing her off balance so she has to adjust and fix it. I suggest a round pen and get after her really hard, push her forward and fast, she may slip, fall, buck, or stop but keep pushing her forwards until she gets it right. You of course will have to get very good at seeing if she's cantering properly or not. Another suggestion is to start from the walk and have her jump into it, this may get her into the right movement.

It looks to me like she has no reach with her left fore. The cadence is correct, right hind, left hind and right fore then left fore, but her left for does not reach out past where her right fore lands. Not sure if this makes sense, or what to do about it, but that is what I see.

Thanks guys, I'm thinking that she's having a reaching issue too. We've had the farrier, vet and some chiropractic and she is sound. But I'll definitely look into a re-adjustment or something maybe? Because she can keep that up at any speed, there's no "pushing" out of it with her.

But thanks a ton you guys! :)
