In & Out

So I easy get confused with terms of things(I'm glad I simply know the gaits!haha;)) So would you consider an in-and-out a bounce or a one-stride? Or possibly a line? Thanks!

An in and out is a two jump combo that can be a one or two strides. A bounce - there is no stride taken in between the two jumps and a line you have several strides between jumps. Hope that helps, Happy Jumping :)

In and out to me means a one stride. A bounce is just... a bounce!

To me, an in-and-out jump only takes one stride. Although I don't know the "rules", so don't quote me. Lol

A bounce jump only allows the horse to land and directly in the same place, take off again. Bouncing.

An in-and-out to me is a 1 stride, set at about 24 ft for the average horse. However, a smaller strided horse (or pony) may only be able to do it in 2 small strides. I think generally I would still call this an in and out, as that is what it was meant to be ridden in. 2 strides would be... well, a "two stride". :) 3 strides and more to me is a line. When a horse lands and immediately takes off is a bounce.
