The customary gait a horse chooses when returning to the yard.
The gallop is the most natural gait of the horse when he needs to move quickly to another place. It is the fastest gait, but also the most strenuous. The actions of the legs are series of uninterrupted jumps initiated in the strong action of the hind legs, transferred through the muscles of the back to the front that is thus lifted, at which point the hind legs, which are strongly set under, with an immense muscular effort throw the entire body forward and the prepared front legs then catch it and support it. Here the legs interchange is lateral, hence even-sided, which means that the two diagonal legs will land simultaneously. Therefore, we can hear three hoof-beats. The movement of the legs follows in this order: right hind – right front simultaneously with left hind – left front, after that follows a moment when the body is moved forward without touching the ground. Henceforth, we can hear a series of regular three-beats (three landings), which is followed with regular pauses (the entire body of the horse is above the ground). The numeric sequence in the gallop (left lead), #1 being the right hind leg.(3) (2) (2) (1) right lead
