How do horses run?
When a horse runs on the left lead (the left front leg reaches farther than the right leg) the hooves land in this order: Right hind, left hind, right front, left front, repeat. When on the right lead, the hooves land in this order: Left hind, right hind, left front, right front. There is also a short period where the horse is completely airborne after the last front leg hits the ground. Then it starts over.

What pairs does the horses feet go into in canter?
The hooves dont go in pairs, so to speak. It usually goes (depending on the leading leg) the back right, the back left, the front left, then the front right, I think. It creates a rocking motion. In the trot, the horses hooves go in pairs, front right and the back left, and the front left and the back right.
