gallop

An asymmetric four beat gait in which the horse is capable of achieving high speeds, with a footfall pattern left hind > right hind > left fore > right fore followed by a suspension phase. As it is an asymmetric gait, the gallop has a leading forelimb which is subject to a slightly greater protraction than the trailing forelimb. The footfall pattern above refers to a right lead gallop; a left lead gallop has a mirrored image footfall pattern: right hind > left hind > right fore > left fore.
