Walk

Gait ChartHooves lift off and contact the ground at separate intervals. The beat is an even 1-2-3-4. Rider moves from front to rear and the horses actions do not seem active like in some of the other gaits. The running walk is also a common gait in Gaited Morgans.

Running Walk

Running WalkWill appear like a faster walk. The hooves sit down in an even 1-2-3-4 beat. Again this gait moves the rider a little from front to rear, but there is no feel of up and down action of the rear of the horse.
