...Have any of you noticed how his horse kind of 'dances' as he walks? He sort of kicks his front hoof out as he takes a step and if the camera stays on him long enough, you can almost hum a tune to the rhythm he seems to be following as he walks. I've noticed this 'dance' before and meant to ask. I wonder if it's James Arness' weight, his height, or what that might cause it, or could the horse be a retired carnival/circus horse?

The subject was that form of racing where the jockey rides behind the horse on a two-wheeled cart, and the horses are called "trotters." When they race, the hooves need to come down in a specific order, which is different than (the order they are put down in) full-out running. If the horse breaks this special stride, the horse-and-rider are disqualified.
