He doesn't move like a gaited horse, he was trotting. That's only what I saw.

I agree with tempest... He's trotting. He could still be a Spotted Saddle horse (some gaited horses don't gait), but it's unlikely.

Not gaited, but a fine horse still. He LOOKS like a spotted saddle horse, and I know quite a few that don't gait, but I can't be sure. Could you post a few more pics of him?

Your horse is paddling and that sometimes gives the impression of gaiting but it isn't.

Please don't take this as anything more then advise but you need a larger saddle. You are riding the cantle and that is putting stress on the rear of the bars and that translates to pain to your horse. It would be much better for your horse for you to ride bareback rather then in a saddle is does not fit. When you get a proper fitting saddle, you need to make the stirrups a little shorter so you can get your heels down and use your legs like shock absorbers/springs. As they are now, you are bouncing in the saddle.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I have a spotted saddle horse and he can trot though I don't usually have him do it. If you speed your horse up, does he go into a rack (which should be VERY smooth) before a canter? If not, I would doubt he is a ssh. He is a beautiful horse no matter what his breed!

He is pretty and has the looks of a SSH but defiantly not gaited. Oh, and you really need to tighten the curb chain or take it off, it's way to loose.
