Collected walk

on the bit, moves forward, neck raised and arched, head approaches vertical, light contact, shorter steps

Extended walk

hind feet touch ground clearly in front of front feet, stretches head and neck

Working trot

between collected and extended, not ready for collected movements, on bit, even and elastic steps, good hock action

Collected trot

on the bit, neck raised and arched, hocks well engaged, maintains energetic impulsion,

shoulders move with ease, shortened steps

Extended trot

covers as much ground as possible, maintains rhythm, lengthens steps because of impulsion from the hindquarters
