They will do the corto and the largo naturally in the pasture, but I highly doubt we would ever see one doing the classic fino in the pasture. The lunge line horse is essentially doing the classic fino, but his steps are a little too big to be considered the true show gait I think - or at least, being able to contend in the showring.
It's the same as how western pleasure horses are naturally slow, but you will never see them jogging and loping AS slow in the pasture as in the ring. Same as the Paso Fino - the gaits are normal, but you won't see them doing a fino in the pasture as it's a man-made alteration of their ability to do the corto and largo.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
