Continuous stall or pen walking. Often an unhappy horse's reaction to confinement.
walking with slow regular strides
when the horse moves its legs in lateral pairs at the trot; i.e. off fore, off hind together, followed by nearside pair
A type of gait. When pacing, a horse moves both legs on the same side, forward at the same time. As they go forward, the other legs on the other side go backward.
Pacing is a 'laterial' gait in which the horse moves the legs on the same side back and forward together. Most pacers wear 'hopples' - straps connecting the legs on the same side. Pacing, or 'ambling', is a natural gait for some breeds of horse (as well as giraffes and camels) and is faster than trotting by roughly 3 seconds per mile. Pacers are also less likely to 'break', so they are more popular with punters than trotters, where the two gaits exist. As a result pacing dominates harness racing in the English-speaking world.
