Re: [RC] RC: gaited horses - Duncan Fletcher

I am not familiar with this book, but if she calls all the 4 beat gaits
artificial, she is starting off showing her ignorance. With some horses,
they may be artificial. Most of the gaited horses do some form of 4-beat
gait naturally - although not always the signature gait of their breed.
Historical, most riding horses had some sort of natural 4 beat gait - the
not very well defined amble that probably included all of the variations
listed in my other post depending on the horse. There are a lot of books on
the gaited horse and no good ones.

   We have a CD ROM "Horse Movement and Gaits".   This is a great tool to
identify gaits and exactly what the legs are doing and when.   You can also
hear the gait and slow it down to get a better look.   Reading on the back
of the case it says...  Learn about:  how movement is generated, elements of
a stride, elements of a gait, animation: reaching and folding, Frame:
collection and extension,   Natural gaits (walk, trot, canter, gallop,
back),  Artificial Gaits (pace, running walk, paso fino, peruvian paso, slow
gait, rack)
   On the bottom it says....   Copyright @ 1998 Deborah K. White   if this
would help anyone find one to buy.   I think I got this off of Ebay.
