If you ever receive the comment ‘lateral walk’ on your dressage score sheet, this should not be brushed aside.

A lateral walk indicates a fundamental issue with the horse’s walk rhythm and, in extreme cases, it can be impossible to correct.

This fault is usually created unknowingly and unintentionally by the rider and can result in a permanently damaged walk pace.

So, in this podcast episode, we’re going to discuss the qualities that make up a correct walk, clarify exactly what a lateral walk is, and give you some tips on how to prevent this problem before finally sharing some methods that may help correct a lateral walk.
