    We have a couple gaited horses who pace and neither of them are uncomfortable to ride at all. Some horses have a smooth pace while others do not.

    Then they are not doing a pace. Maybe a stepping pace which is ok.
    A true pace is when both feet on the same side hit the ground at the same time which is very jarring.
    Stepping pacing has that split second between foot falls which breaks up the hard pace.

    They are pacing. The front and back on the same side move simultaniously. The pick up and set down at the same time creating a 2 beat. It all depends on how the horse sets its foot down. Not the fact that they are hitting at the same time. If the horse naturally had a "slide" to it when its foot hits the ground then it is no where near as uncomfortable as a horse that plants when they pace.

    I ride a TWH and honestly just love the comfort of the ride. I admit I can not tell you the difference of the gaits she does I just know when she gets her nod going it is awesome. I trail ride and she has always accepted any challenge and akwn me wherever I want to go for the past 5 yrs.
