Main advantages of the stroboscopic photographic survey in the full-scale experimental study of kinematics of a gait of a live system are substantiated. The qualitative analysis of motion of the horse legs in the "walk" allure is performed from the standpoint of trajectories of points, stability, and also with separating the features of adjustment of motion trajectory of the entire system's center-of-mass. The hoof's movement during its approach to the support surface is analyzed. The probabilistic constituents in the control of extremities of the live system are estimated.
