GALLOP. A well known pace to which the horse is trained, and of which many kinds are enumerated, but two only worthy of notice, viz. the hand gallop and the full gallop; and even these distinctions are founded on the different degrees of velocity in which the animal is impelled, rather than on any peculiarity in the pace itself.
