If you are meaning 'rack', then yes a pacing horse can rack... However if you mean 'hack', then yes a horse can also hack.... Hacking is when a horse canters really slowly.... If you ever see a race horse, you will see at the end of the race, the horse canters REALLY slowly... you mainly see this on the winning horse... A hack is so slow that it is pretty much the same pace as a slow trot.

What would a horse do when it is left in its stall bored windsuck chew wood paw the floor excessvely or all of these?

All of these. When a horse is in a stall, he doesn't get adequate physical and mental stimulation, so a horse often resorts to "stall vices" like cribbing, windsucking, chewing wood, pawing, pacing, etc.

How do you stop a dog pacing in gait with both legs on one side moving together?

If the dog is otherwise healthy and doesn't have any signs of emotional or psychological issues and if that kind of gait works for the dog, then he doesn't need any correction. If by "pacing" you mean a dog with an obsessive pacing issue, then you have a psychological issue that needs to be addressed with the help of a dog trainer or a vet.

How did the racking horse get its name?

The racking horse is similar to the Tennessee Walking Horse; it has a smooth, natural gait, is very strong, and has the ability to sustain a rapid pace for long periods of time. The origins of the Racking Horse date back to the birth of our nation. The horse's popularity grew on Southern plantations when it was learned that it could be ridden comfortably for hours. The "rack" of the Racking Horse is a bi-lateral four-beat gait which is neither a pace nor a trot. It is often called a "single-foot" because only one foot strikes the ground at a time. The Racking Horse comes by this gait as naturally as walking or striking a bond trot comes to other breeds. This horse is not to be confused with other breeds in which the "rack" is an artificially achieved gait resulting from special training. Beginning riders find that the Racking Horse is a great horse to use when learning to ride, not only for its extremely comfortable ride, but also because of its unusual friendliness to humans. The Racking Horse is attractive and gracefully built with a long sloping neck, full flanks, wellboned, smooth legs and finely textured hair. The Racking Horse is considered a "light" horse in comparision with other breeds, averaging 15.2 hands high (a "hand" is considered to be four inches) and weighing 1,000 pounds. Colors may be black, bay, sorrel, chestnut, brown, gray, yellow and sometimes even spotted.

Can a low backed horse rack?

Answer no Answer They probably could, but it would put a lot of strain on the horse. The rack requires a high head set with a back arched towards the ground. The rack on its own put a lot of strain on a horse all its own. When a horse already has damaged back muscles the rack could injure the horse more and make it un-ridable.

Why can't a low - backed horse rack?

I am sure it is possible for a low-backed horse to rack, however, the Rack requires a high head set and therefore, a dished in back and that puts alot of pressure on the horse, especially on its back. Since a low-backed horse already has a messed-up back, it puts even more strain on the horse, and can lead to a horse with no chance of ever being ridden again.
