PACES OF A HORSE. The natural paces of a horse are three, viz. a walk, a trot, and a gallop; to which may be added, an amble, because some horses have it naturally; and such horses are generally the swiftest amblers of any.
Horses which go shuffling or mixed paces, between the walk and amble, are for the most part of no value; and this oftentimes proceeds from their fretful fiery temper, and sometimes from a weakness either in their loins or legs.
