Standardbred horse demonstrates the trot and pace in harness. According to the New York Times, researchers at Sweden's Uppsala University recently discovered that a single gene, the DMRT3 mutation, determines whether or not a horse can pace. More Standardbreds pace than trot, usually at faster speeds.

The trot is a diagonal gait, in which the legs on opposite sides move in unison. At the pace, the horse's legs on the same side of the body move together. A "free-legged" pacer doesn't wear hobbles.

Demo horse: "Süsse" Up'N Coming Artist, Driver: Danni R.
