AMBLE, or Amrling. A gentle pace, distinct from trotting, very easy to the rider, now nearly out of use. A pad, the common appellation of an ambling horse, was formerly in great request to carry a lady. In ambling, the horse changes sides at each step or remove, both the legs on one side being lifted up together. A horse may be taught either by the hand or by the trammel.
