In Scott's romances are many allusions to the 'ambling palfry." Ben Jonson in "Every Man in His Humor'' speaks of going '' out of the old hackney- pace to a fine, easy amble," and Dickens in "Barnaby Rudge'' refers to '' the gray mare breaking from her sober amble into a gentle trot.'' The ambling gait is natural to the elephant, and to the horse, the mule and the ass; but in many countries these latter animals are not encouraged in its use..
