Yes, nice extension, but the only gait I know, where a horse has all four feet off the ground, is a lope ( canter)
A trot or jog, is a tow beat gait, while a lope has a moment of suspension, after the final beat of those three beats that make up a lope or canter (outside hind, then inside hind and outside front together, then inside (lead front leg), then a moment of suspension, before repeat.
Beats are counted when the leg (s) making them, hit the ground
