Five-Galled Horiex In Show The Greeley show will include five-gaited horses, which are shown at Ihe walk, trot, canler, slow gait and rack. The fivc-gaitecj horse combines substance with quality and beauty of conformation. Substance is required to provide Ifcc necessary endurance to perform the different gaits for a long period of lime, some of which gaits (the trot and rack) are performed at speed. While speed is desirable, it should never be obtained at the sacrifice of Iprm. Five-gaited horses are shown with long manes and tails, and are judged for general conformation, finish, manners, way of going and ability to perform all five gails easily and distinctly.

The gaits of the Tennessee wnlk- ng horse arc the Hal-fooled walk, he running walk and the c?ntcr. The first mentioned should have a s[,. j ed of from four lo six miles an hour, Ihe second up to eight miles an hour and the canler is a rolling movemenl lhat docs not jar or jolt the rider in its graceful execution. Gails arc natural with the Tennessee walking horse, so to speak, and the running walk, peculiar to his breed, is inherited. So it lakes no slre'nuous and lengthy period of training to have an individual doing 'his gaits with competitive ease. Persons not well acquainted 1 with the terms and the classes arc urged by the show officials to lake [he above explanations with them to the show for greater enjoyment.
