A Pacer is a horse that by nature tends to run not at a trot, but at a walk.
Pacers are found among horses of many breeds, especially among steppe and mountain native horses (Kazakh, Mongolian, Kyrgyz, etc.)
The local population values them very much for their fast and not shaky course. Under the saddle, the Pacer easily passes up to 120 km per day at an average speed of 10 km/h.
Amble – a fast symmetrical gait with two-hoofed lateral support and a phase of free flight. The front and hind limbs of one side simultaneously descend and step on the ground, while the opposite pair is brought forward at this time.
The length of the horse’s stride when ambling is less than when trotting, but the speed of movement may be greater due to the characteristic amble more frequent stepping.
