Basic Horse Gaits

This site presents basic horse gaits (walk, trot, canter, gallop) with animations, descriptions, and speeds. Sadly it doesn't touch on the fancy ones used by gaited horses, such as the rack or tolt. This is still a very useful site for writers, link courtesy of haikujaguar.

Now here's a fun cryptobiology question: What gaits does a unicorn have? It depends on whether the unicorn has a caprine or equine body style, or even something weirder, because the underlying anatomy affects how an animal moves. There are antelope, for instance, that bounce. Imagine a hunter sneaking up on a belapped unicorn, taking aim ... and suddenly the unicorn is 15 feet in the air, ka-BOING!
