The S&S Foxtrotter
For some a foxtrot sounds more like a ballroom dancing phenomena then something horses would engage in. In the equine sense, however, a foxtrot is a four-beat broken diagonal gait with a distinctive
1-2 ... 3-4 rhythm that's created when a horse moves its front foot a second before its opposite rear foot. This adds stability to the ride because there is two or more feet on the ground at all times which avoids the jarring up and down sensation characteristic of non-gaited horses.
