Air [in Horsemanship]

Air [in Horsemanship]
is a Cadence and Liberty of Motion, that is accommodated to the natural Disposition of a Horse, that makes him work in the Manage, and rise with Obedience, Measure and Justness of Time. Others use the Word Air in a strict Sense, to signifie a Manage that’s higher, slower and more artfully designed than the terra a terra. The Walk, Trot and Gallop are not in the general accounted Airs; others again use the Word Air, for the Motion of a Horse’s Legs upon a Gallop.
