So do we have a description of a canter and a gallop?  Are they the same stride, but done with different frequency, or does the horse use a different sequence of hoof placements.

Again, this is NOT a trick question.

A Gallop is a 4 beat stride, and a Canter is a 3 Beat Stride,

4 beat meaning, all 4 strides hit the ground at different times, as with the canter, one of the back legs hits the ground at the same time as one of the fronts

Hmmm, thanks MagiC.  :beer:

So when the caller says "they're only cantering", are they cantering or going at a slow gallop? :chin:

DD most callers are probably just using the experssion "they're only cantering" to inform us the pace is slow or they have slowed the race up. It is very easy for a horse to move from a canter to a gallop and the reverse. As magic said a canter is a three beat stride and a gallop a 4 beat stride. Horses will lead on the leg in the direction it is going eg if turning to the right it will lead with it's right leg, turning left will lead with the left leg. Horses like people can be left or right sided, so some will be better going anti clockwise, most on here would understand that anyway.

Now just to confuse you, when hunting, showing, dressage, or jumping one might keep one's  horse in a hand gallop which is a collected gallop very controlled, that is different to a extended canter, which means the horse is still cantering but extends his stride and action. During long jumps races horses are often seen moving between a extended canter, hand gallop and flaaaaaaaat out, depending on trainers instructions, or if the jockey wants to save his mount a bit.
 
A counter canter is a dressage movement where a rider will ask his/her horse to lead with the opposite leg eg if going right lead with the left leg not the right. A collected canter is where the horse's balance is shifted more to his hindquarters it is a very very nice ride a reward for education and bonding between horse and rider.

I suspect going at a canter is just a figure of speech........hope this helps  -())=(

You been drinking, DD?
As RH says, it's an expression, i'm sure you're aware of that.
Sometimes they indicate that they're walking, or even going at a snail's pace, or on the other hand, going faster than last weeks wages, now that has to be quicker than any gallop   :lol:   :lol:   :lol:

RH

Thanks for all that.  I thinnnnnnnnk I now understand.  ())=(  Just one point to clarify:  In a gallops race, do horses ever canter, or are they merely galloping slowly? :chin:

Larsy

Whether I've been drinking or not is not your business.  :bleh:  If you knew all the answers, ya could have at least given me a hint.  But I suspect ya didn't know. :no:     :lol:

or gallop slowly

   emthup  

A canter would be more like 24 - 30 seconds to the furlong DD, half pace is 18, 3/4 pace is 15, and a working gallop is 12

Thanks, MagiC.

What's the slowest a horse can gallop?  (And please don't tell me to replay the run of Ignition Miss.)



What year was the Epsom run at Warwick Farm? - or at least I think it was.

Not sure it has been run at WF, but in 2001 was run over 1400 on the inner track at Randwick.
Was at my annual golf weekend with the boys at Mudgee, and a mate from Dunheved Golf Club was a part owner of Final Fantasy, we all cleaned up at 40/1  :beer:
The weekend was capped off perfectly with a Knights win over the red hot favourites, Eels.
I can't remember how the golf went

Maybe it was the running of the Epsom on the Kensington. :chin:

I'm pretty sure one of the feature Spring meetings was run at Warwick Farm. :unsu

Anyone got an opinion on ex-Vic 5yo steed REASSURING, who's in the 2nd at Dbn tomorra?

He hasn't won in metro class, but has fair form in provincials.
