does my horse have TW in him?

This is my first post so don't know if the attachments worked or not.
I got this guy about a year ago and he does trot but two vets have now told me they think he is a TWH or at least a cross. Was sold to me as a morgan. He does trot but also sometimes has what feels like a rack. I love him dearly - he has the BEST temperment but I was just wondering if I could teach him to do a running walk. I have a very bad back and was thinking it might be much smoother than a trot.

There are gaited Morgans, so he might well be a Morgan.

If he has a rack/amble/stepping pace/shuffle sometimes?

Pay attention to what you are doing when he goes into it, the speed, your aids, and the terrain.

Get him moving out at a walk, and when speeding him up slightly, try "shaking" that head a little, by lightly taking up one rein and then the other.

Try taking up a hill and see if you can get him to engage into what you think may be a rack. Taking them up a hill (which doesn't have to be steep) will get him engaging his rearend. He has a strong front and if he is a gaited morgan I would work on the rear.

Honestly, he looks nothing like a TWH to me. He looks like a Morgan and possibly a gaited one

I think there could be some two. Looking at his legs is where I'm seeing it. Especially in the back but it's hard to tell from those pix....

I see Morgan, not TWH. Morgan's can gait, especially the rack.
