That phrase, to me, means that the horse has a good ground covering walk. He reaches well under himself , engaging his hindend, and moves well. Not hurriedly, but nice "ground eating" walk.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

Exactly. A horse that travels well walks at a nice brisk pace all day long and doesn't require alot of leg to keep going.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

I agree with the two above definitions. I also think of it as a very confident walk which demonstrates that the horse is relaxed in it's environment and feels that there is nothing to be wary of.
