[Video] Defining and Classifying Gaits

Understanding the movement of the horses you work with is critical regardless of the horse, but even more crucial when dealing with gaited horses. Dr. Molly Nicodemus of Mississippi State University has studied the gait mechanics of various breeds.

In this presentation, she’ll discuss gaits, focusing on ambling gaits. She’ll help relate to how this may influence your trimming and shoeing decisions. Nicodemus says this is a crucial discussion because it is important to first understand normal before we can identify abnormal.
