Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What do you call a canter in Western lingo?

Answer: Lope

The lope is a nice easy gait that is easy to sit. A jog is the same thing as a trot and is usually very rough to sit. A gallop is faster than a canter or lope.
2. What is a horse that grabs onto something and inhales air called?

Answer: Cribber

It is a very bad habit and usually impossible to break, so cribbing straps (placed around their throat) are used to deter them from doing this.
3. Where are a horse's "feathers" located?

Answer: Lower legs

"Horse feathers" refer to the hairs that are on the lower legs of the horse. A perfect example of these can be seen on the Budweiser Clydesdale horses!
4. What does "over-reaching" mean?

Answer: The heels of the forefeet get hit by the toes of the hind feet

This can cause the horse to lose a lot of shoes because when he "over-reaches" the toes of the back feet will sometimes grab the heel of the shoe and pull it off of his front feet.
5. What does "roaching" the mane mean?

Answer: Shaving the mane

When you "roach" the mane you take clippers and shave the mane back to the body of the horse. Some will leave only a forelock. The purpose of this usually is so the reins do not become entangled in the mane of the horse.
6. What is a term used to describe an inexperienced horse?

Answer: Green

A "tolt" is a gait between a normal walk and a pace often seen in the Icelandic horse.
7. What is the name used for supernumerary premolars?

Answer: Wolf

They are called wolf teeth. Cob is a large pony.
8. What are people talking about when they say a horse carries a "good flag" ?

Answer: Tail

This term refers to the "set" of the tail on the horse. Usually it is evident when the horse runs and he "flags" the tail- it resembles a flag blowing in the wind.
9. What does F.E.I. stand for?

Answer: Federation Equestre Internationale

F.E.I. set rules that govern how shows are to be judged internationally so that they are all the same.
10. What is the web of a horseshoe?

Answer: Measurement of width

This is terminology used by the horseshoer, who is also known as a "farrier".
