Don’t underestimate how much your cell phone can be used as a learning tool! Most smart phones have a “slow mo” video option. It’s a great opportunity to capture video of your horse to learn gaits & foot fall patterns! . Enjoy these quick clips I snapped of our horse, Paddy. Paddy can be seen at the trot, canter (both leads), as well as the counter canter. . Did you know the trot is a 2-beat diagonal gait with the diagonal pairs moving together?
