This fun character piece evokes the feeling of being jostled on a trotting horse with grace notes, triplets, and sixteenth rests that give the melody a “hiccupping” feeling. Students should have a strong sense of tempo in order to clearly distinguish between triplets and eighth or sixteenth notes. Confidence with scales will aid the learning of this piece, especially in the lilting middle section and the ending bars.
