Annotations This reference is about whether horses transition gaits based on energy use or based upon musculoskeletal forces. This makes a contribution to the field of gait transitions because it seeks to identify exactly why a particular animal changes gaits. This is relevant to my topic as it provides potential biological inspiration for gait transitions in robots.
