Horses and videos...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_5gvQ9G--E

If you're interested in the horse stuff:

1 - it's hard to do this stuff without a bridle.
2 - the more a ridden horse swings and keeps his rear legs forward and underneath himself the more athletic and happy he'll be.

If you're interested in the video stuff, Kathy's learning Final Cut and "Motion".

What a beautiful horse! I'm so glad she didn't give up on him.

Final Cut is a lot of fun! I'm looking forward to the time when my current projects are done and I can get back to working on my cooking show project.

Oops, there's more

In the first video there's not a lot of "tolt" (a little bit between 1:03 and 1:10).

In the next video there's a great look at "flying pace" (around :11 seconds in), and several good examples of "tolt" (opening, :15, :35, :40), and a little bit of me, hell bent for leather, at :26.

So, these horses have two extra gaits, the flying pace, and most importantly the "tolt", which is a lot like what a Tennessee walking horse or a Missouri Fox-trotter does, only much faster.
