Hi everyone!

This is Dakino and I am a co-author of this awesome blog…and I found some time to finally write a post here.

So recently while doing some research for my page on gaits, I found an awesome picture about Tölt and it’s connection with other gaits:

If you look at it closer (not literally) you’ll see that the outside ring is more common gaits (except for pace).  You go in one more circle and it’s the Tölt between each gait.  The center is the Icelandic gait, the Tölt.

In case you didn’t know what a Tölt was, it’s an ambling gait of a horse found in Icelandic horses.  The foot-falls are the same as in the walk, but it is performed in different speeds, including the speed of a  canter/lope!

To learn a little more about the Tölt: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambling#T.C3.B6lt

So that was just a picture with just a little description.

Thanks for reading!
