Pacing horse

A pacing horse is a standardbred horse with a lateral gait that is, its forelegs move in unison with the hindlegs on the same side. The left foreleg moves in the same direction as the left hindleg and the right foreleg in the same direction as the right hindleg. The other gait used by standardbred horses is the trot.
