The Indian Shuffle
What can you tell me about the Indian Shuffle. Does the horse take smaller steps when shuffling ? is it just the trot thats different or does it walk and lope different as well. Any info would be great! I have read about it and watched videos, but they all seem different from the next..is it just one certain way to do it or can one horse be different than the next. I'm trying to figure out whats up with my new horse.

This is how she trots
but walks different.

Wow, I've never seen that before. Sounds kind of dumb, but I recall seeing old westerns with the horses moving that way with the native Americans on board.....sounds dumb I know. But I might read up!!!!

Isn't the Indian Shuffle also known as the Amble? I can't remember - seems I heard that a long time ago...

Do you guys think these horses are shuffling too? If so then my filly is also a shuffler, because if you watch the blue roan/grey mare at the back of the herd here, my filly jogs just like her

My mare looks to do the 4 beat mostly, when she is going faster, but at a walk I see the 2 beat..Does this make sense? can they do different beats at different speeds.

In Brazil they might call that a marcha batida, D1-D2. :-)
It's a diagonal gait with some "disassociation" meaning that the trot is "broken" by the rear landing before the corresponding diagonal front. Properly done you get three feet on the ground at all times.
The "Indian Shuffle" is just another name for this particular point on the continuum of soft gaits. To call it an "Amble" would be correct, but the term "amble" usually is used in a broader sense meaning a non-trotting, intermediate gait. I guess of you "capitalize" it you claim it for yet another point on that continuum! :wink:
What does the horse do under saddle?
