Little foal follows her mother

Apparently, this foal at a horse riding school in Columbia has not been trained to walk like this, but has instinctively picked it up from watching her mother.

I believe that is most likely a "Paso Fino."

From the Wikipedia page: "... bred by Spanish land owners in Puerto Rico and Colombia to be used in the plantations because of their endurance and comfortable ride... The Paso Fino executes a natural evenly spaced four-beat lateral ambling gait, similar to many gaited horses. Both the Colombian and the Puerto Rican strains of the Paso Fino execute the lateral gait naturally, without the aid of training devices...."
