To answer your op its just as the others have said. I've used A LOT of different saddles on gaited horses, pasos and walkers and it VARIES BIG time, my SSH rides best in a medium english all purpose and my boyfriends walker rides great in anything as long as he has wither clearance. I have found endurance saddles are usually a good decision and are usually comfy as far as bits use whatever the horse prefers when you get it, see what the seller uses and make your decision from there. But I am particular to the IMUS comfort gait bit, its a gentle bit that is pinchless and is very comfy to the horses mouth. ALSO www.gaitsofgold.com has some good articles but Brenda Imus is partial to her stuff so Id also use www.gaitedhorses.net they have some awesome gaited horse info and it gives you a different perspective. Pretty much whatever both you and the horse work best in is what you want to go with. From what I have learned a lot of stuff that is "made for gaited horses" is a hype and more expensive

yep, Benda Imus is banking a lot on people buying '4 beat' products from her...I mean 80 bucks for a Brenda Imus Bit? Come on? Her stuff is not even unique...her bits are a basic Myler Comfort bit base. And he transition bit is nothing more then a D ring bit that can roll in the horses mouth.

Almost all modern trainers are that way be it gaited or non gaited, look at Parelli and the amount of money he carries to the bank with all his products.

With my 2 Walkers I've found the 6 yo needs a gaited saddle, with plenty of room for withers and shoulders (found a custom made on line, it's half price of catalog saddles). The 3 yo is still slim and my flex tree trail saddle does fine. I agree with the others on bit, too--if you're showing you need particular bits, but in training I move from rubber snaffle to full cheek snaffle to Tom Thumb to . . . Whatever works best for each horse. A couple of good sites/catalogs to study are National Bridle Shop (.com) and The Winner's Circle (.net)--not trying to advertise for them, but I found them very helpful in studying on styles, gaited/TWH possibilities, and some inexpensive bits!

Good luck. Oh, and some places now let you use a loaner saddle to see if it works on your horse!!

Happy trails, Renee
