Before anyone says "he couldn't barrel race, he's not built for it etc. etc, could we maybe see a conformation picture of him?? Not all gaited horses have the typical gaited horse conformation, some are less precisely bred, so less refined. For all we know, this horse could even be quarter-horsey in build. Also, the OP asked if she COULD un-gait her horse, not if she SHOULD. So, yes, you CAN un-gait a gaited horse, but it probably isn't easy. Personally, I don't know how you would go about doing it.
