Worksheet – Gaits of the Horse
Name the gait
Fill in the blanks
Think about it
This worksheet is part of our Rider Medals program. This worksheet covers Level 2: Beginner I gaits of the horse. It includes:
- Name each gait, color the fastest horse dun and the slowest palomino
- Fill in the blanks on the names and number of beats in each gait, including a bonus question on researching the name of the fastest record-holding thoroughbred racehorse
- Look at silhouettes of cantering versus galloping, see if they can identify the moment of suspension as what makes one faster than the other
- Think about why it’s important to name and identify the different gaits, can horses be left and right-handed like people are, why we practice at the different gaits, how to tell if a gait is too slow or too fast, and defining what a transition is.
This worksheet pairs well with our horsemanship I journal page and beginner lesson journal page.
