The motion of the horse’s feet and legs are called gaits. There are roughly two groups of gaits, the natural gait and the acquired gait. The four natural gaits are the walk, the trot, the canter and the gallop. Some people consider the cantor and the gallop as one gait. A gait performed by natural impulse and without training is called a natural gait. Gaits that require specific training and practice are acquired gaits.
