Word of the Week: Pace

Every week we will post a veterinary or equine related word or term and its meaning.

This week’s word is:


A two-beat, lateral gait where the front and hind legs on the same side move forward at the same time. Difficult to ride, but the fastest of the intermediate gaits, particularly seen in harness racing and the “flying pace” of the Icelandic horse.
