The Study of Healthy Movement of the Horse | The Delicate Intricacies of The Walk

The walk is the most complicated of all the gaits having both a diagonal and a lateral component. It is what we often refer to as a gait of healing.  Because of the intricacies of the walk, it can be the one that is most difficult to have a full and complete understanding of.  But it is the one that is perhaps most important to understand so that we can fully utilize it as a gait of health.

The walk is unique among all the other gaits because it is here that we can return to again and again to return the horse to good movement.  Bring back mobility to the spine and the cervical vertebrae.  What we mess us elsewhere we can quickly return to health here.
