Do you like horses then this is the article for you.

There are many horse breeds in the world, e.g .:

American Quarter Horse

Andalusians.

Appaloosa

Arabs.

German Riding Pony

Friezes.

Haflinger

Hanoverian.

Icelandic horse

Shetland pony

And much more…

I think Haflingers and Hanoverians are very comfortable when riding. You have 3 gaits: walk, trot and gallop.

The Icelandic horses are so cute and they have 5 gaits: walk, tölt, trot, gallop and racing pass.

Explanation of the gaits:

For all horses

Step -> is slow "walk"

Trot -> is like jogging for us

Gallop -> is fast, "run" (run)

 For Icelandic horses only

Tölt -> is between walk and trot

Rennpass -> is very quick to "run"
