most horses trot at 12 miles a hour
if a horse has long legs it will have large strides which means it will have a fast trot but it could be lazy and go slow now a little horse could have fast trot too because it will have small strides so they would lots of little strides really quickly but then again it could just be lazy i hope ive answered your question , beautifulbeauforever :)
Depends on how fast the horse is moving;)
The natural trot for a horse under saddle. It is the normal trot for the horse.
A non-gaited horse has 4 basic gaits. The walk, the trot, the canter and the gallop. The gallop is the fastest a horse can go.
To tell (or ask) your horse to trot is:"Aller au trotter."Translation is: To go into a trot.
it depends on the size of the horses legs , a horse with long legs generaly doesn't have a fast trot but a horse with shorter legs will be faster because if the horse with long legs is trotting it's legs will bring them farther because of their length but a horse with short legs will not go as far at the same speed. but sometimes a horse goes slow because they are just lazy. i hope this answers the question the way you wanted it to :) grace
These types of races are ran with the horses harnessed up to a 'sulkie', a lightweight 2-wheeled cart. Unlike other types of horseracing, the harness races are all ran at a fast-paced trot. If the horse 'breaks' from the trot he is disqualified.
A Piaffe is when the horse is in a highly collected trot on the spot. Likewise, a Passage is when the horse performs this elevated trot while moving forwards.
The answer to this is: the carriage is only as fast as the horse. Walk: Roughly 3-4 MPH. A pleasure show horse can go as slow as 2 mph. Gaited horses-- who do not trot-- can do a 'running walk' as fast as 15 mph. Trot: The trot is roughly 8-10 MPH. Again, a shorter striding horse could trot slower, and a horse with a long stride could move faster. Harness Racing (Trot/Pace): 20-35 MPH Canter/Lope: 10-17 MPH. Gallop - 20-45 MPH NOTE 1: It is generally considered bad form for any horse in harness to canter, lope, or gallop while hitched to a vehicle, as it is dangerous and ill-advised. NOTE 2: Many horse-drawn vehicles are referred to as "carriages" when in fact, they are not. Hearses, wagons, sulkies, carts etc all have different functions and are built to go at different speeds.
Have the horse trot for you!
yes of course! all horses can trot.
A Morgan horse can reach speeds up to 20 miles per hour at times. Their medium pace trot averages 6 to 8 miles per hour.
Yes they can.
When you are riding a horse at a trot you can either sit the trot (something that require a lot of practice to be able to do well), or do a rising trot where you post (go up and down in the saddle) in time with the horse's outside leg.
Horses can travel upwards of thirty (and some, even forty) miles per hour. They cannot sustain this pace for long, though. A horse can gallop a couple of miles at full steam, but the same horse can canter (or lope) much farther. Trotting (either a fast trot or a jog trot) isn't a bad way to travel, but you don't get very far very fast. Faster trotting is tiring to the rider as well because you are posting (rising up and down out of the saddle on alternate beats). It all really depends on the breed, fitness and stride length of the horse.
Once you get into a fast trot, kick the horse harder, (without hurting him/her of course) and lean forward a bet. If you kick strong enough, the house will break into a canter.
No, posting or rising trot is a way to ride the trot and you can post any type of trot. Extended trot is where the horse lengthens it's trot stride to cover more ground. Typically this causes the trot to smooth out a bit making it easier to sit the trot.
A pacer horse is another name for the Standerbred horses they pull carts and trot at swift paces around a racetrack made of limestone.
well it you trot a horse you get it more into shape by trotting it rather than cantering it. that's just what i learned? It is a part of riding and keeping a horse fit.
A trot is a horse's gait where the horse's legs move diagonally compared to each other. It is also a disparaging term for an ugly old woman.
Yes; if it's not visible at the walk, you need to trot the horse in-hand and have someone watching its feet.
WTC is shorthand for walk, trot, canter. It means that the horse will quietly walk, trot, and canter under saddle.
