What is it called when a horse is running?
The four basic gaits are the walk, which is much like our walk, the trot, which in slow versions is like our jog, and in faster versions, more like our run. The canter is the next gait, and the gallop is the fastest. Horses have 2 gallops- the in-hand gallop, which is a slower, more collected and controlled gallop, and then the full-out gallop. Running is often used as a substitute for the full-out gallop.
Asked in Horses
What is a horse's fastest pace?
The primary gaits are walk, trot, canter, gallop and run. Some people use the term gallop and run interchangably. Traditionally, canter is a slower 3 beat gait and gallop or (hand gallop) is the faster version of a canter and still 3 beats. In racing the fastest gait is 4 beats and the horse is said to be running.
