Number of times that a limb, or more than one limb (in unison), make contact with the ground during one stride.
For example, a pace is described as a two-beat gait because ipsilateral limbs move simultaneously, resulting in two beats during each stride.
In contrast, a canter is a three-beat gait because two limbs move together, but the other two move independently from each other, resulting in three beats during each stride.
