Thanks so much Heidrun, Wanda, Dave and Luckstar!
The fifth gait is called "tolt". "The tolt is a gait in a quartered beat with equal intervals and is a gait that, with unaltered footfall can escalate its swiftness from a mere step to great speed. You can hear the tolt distinctly as a constant four beat staccato and see that the horse carries the rider smoothly in an even four beated rhythm, perfectly still in his saddle." I witnessed this and it is amazing to see. I have a photo I will post later.

Thank you very much Elaine, Eileen, Gil and Sharon! Seeing this herd of horses was an unexpected treat. We were visiting a folk museum and noticed the horses in a field out back. Pretty soon everyone was out there and the horses came over to investigate! What fun! Thanks so much approvers!
