Running Walk:
 
The running walk is a four-beat gait with each of the horses feet hitting the ground separately at regular intervals.  As the horse moves the head will nod rhythmically with the regular raise and fall of the feet. .  He overstrides with his hind foot the track of the front foot.  The hind almost touching the fore foot on the same side before that foot is removed.
