Six experts of the Franches-Montagnes (FM) horse breed observed video clips of 24 stallions walking and trotting on a treadmill. They scored six gait quality traits at the walk and eight at the trot on paper sheets at two different occasions. These scores were afterwards transcribed into two csv tables (first and second scoring) and the experts anonymised with a letter from A to F. This data was used to calculated inter- and intra-rater reliability of the six experts for each trait. The traits listed in the metadata were previously defined in a study with the same 24 stallions scored live in a sand arena by seven experts of the breed.
