Less Than Perfect Gaits in Horses

Stand in front of a long mirror and 'march' on the spot knees and arms up and down like a toy soldier. Progress to toy soldiering around the room, and then to plain marching. Music or metronome will make it easier. I have found it so - arm now swings with walking, although I may have to 'think-start' it. I think it also helps with hip movement too.
In an ideal world, horses' feet would all be straight shooters. Hooves that leave the ground symmetrically, travel straight through the air and land flat produce efficient movement with minimal stress on leg bones and joints. Horses inhabit the real world, however, where their foot-flight patterns often deviate from the ideal. Dishing is the term used to describe an inward swing of the hoof with each stride; winging and paddling describe outward-swinging foot flight. Angled "hinges" in the knees, fetlocks or, very rarely, the feet produce these deviations from straight forward-and-back motion.
