Pairs: Horse Gaits

A new exhibit opened at the city’s Assiniboine Park Zoo…heavy horses…Percherons!! This white and grey horse was quite the show-off and surprisingly light on its feet.

A trotting horse…moving its legs in unison in diagonal pairs. 2 legs on the ground and 2 in the air:

A cantering horse. 1 leg on the ground, 3 in the air:horse gait-4 for blog

It sure looks like the horse was having fun!!!

  1. Oh so lovely – aren’t Percheron a gorgeous horse! I wonder what other heavy horses they will have visit? One of the nicest horses I rode was a Percheron Thoroughbred cross.


  2. fabulous captures of their feet in perfect formation – guessing you took a lot in order to get the perfect ones! I love big horses and I’m sure they will be a very popular attraction
