From the Judge’s Booth with Janet Foy: Free Walk


Free Walk

A variation of walk in which the horse freely lowers and stretches out its head and neck and shows the natural longitudinal oscillation of the neck. The hind feet touch the ground clearly in front of the prints of the forefeet, with strides longer than in medium walk. Can be performed on a long rein (maintaining contact) or a loose rein (with a loop in the rein – no contact).
