Word of the Week – Tempo


TEMPO – Rate of repetition of the strides as may be measured by a metronome.

Tempo is measured by counting the number of times per minute that one of the hooves touches down (indicating completion of one full stride). Alternatively, at walk and trot, both emphasized beats of the stride may be counted.

Note: Tempo is often confused with rhythm, speed, pace, or cadence.
