I'd never recommend a MFT to be a breed that's good at riding with the peanut pushers.
The MFT is normally not a good one to hold a solid fox trot. It normally needs quite a bit of training on a regular basis. Yes, I'm quite sure you will hear of those that do stay in gait well, but they are in the minority in this this breed. Slowing them down to ride with a slow walking QH will make it even worse.
The best at what your looking for is a laid back Paso, and the "laid back" part is very hard to find.
Rather than slow the gaited horse down, why don't the QH speed up their walk. They only walk very slow, because they have been taught this way. That thing on their back is the only reason they walk the peanut pushing walk. They are very capable of walking a brisk walk.
