There are about 75 MILLION horses in the world! There are over 260 breeds of horses in the world. One of the funnest things involving horses is riding them. Horses have four gaits, walking trotting, cantering and galloping. At a walk the rider can hear all four legs moving individually.
In a rising trot, the rider rises up and down to the horse's movements. In a sitting trot, the rider sits in the classic position. In a canter,this is the order of the horse's hooves: 1 right hind; 2, right fore and left hind; 3, left fore, with or without a brief period of suspension before the right hind is brought down. Stay in the classic position. In the gallop, the rider goes up into two-point.Below are some pictures from Jungle Walk:
