There are two ways that you'll possibly end up viewing the brilliance that is Trotting, either you're a horse enthusiast or you've seen it on the television and you've been bemused by what you're watching. Trotting is the most common form of harness racing which in itself is a variation of horse racing betting. Horses pull a two-wheeled cart and the first across the finish line is the victory.
