Suspended Trot
The trotting gait in which the animal leaves the ground during each stride.
This increases the amount of ground that can be covered with a minimum increase in expenditure of energy to that used in a supported trot.
The brief suspension phases of the trot, when momentarily no feet touch the ground, is also known as spring.
This gait is also known as the flying trot.
