Information on Marwaris and Their Rawal Gait Please!

So recently, I read this Horse Husband FAQs: ‘Are there gaited horses in Asia?’ « HORSE NATIONarticle on Horse Nation. After watching some of the videos, I started wondering more about their gait, what the footfalls are, etc. Amazingly, that is one of the extremely few topics that I cannot find a lot about on Google, so I was hoping that maybe, possibly, some of you gaited-horse junkies might be able to help me out.

Thanks!

I remember hearing several years ago some that Kathawari/Marwari horses were gaited, but I couldn't find the source. I did find this video on YouTube of what appears to be some kind of gaited speed competition. Can't tell what gait the first horse is doing, but the grey is definitely pacing:

I saw these horses several years ago at an Equitana (maybe in Louisville?). They were not presented as "gaited horses." Their big selling point was the ears making a "heart" shape. They seemed nice enough (I didn't get the impression they were the next "Gypsy Vanner") but there were not very many in the U.S.

I was on a business trip 2 years back and saw a Marwari stallion being ridden on a beach in India. A colleague took pictures but lost them darn it!

But if I remember correctly, I didn't notice him gaiting.

Ah, my dream horse. They are only in India, if I remember correctly, because they have such a low population. Marwari's were able to be exported up until the 90's when it was banned. Such a shame too, I would die to own a marwari, or a half at that.

I see lots of trot on that last video and what looks like a pace, but they don't focus on the horses' legs long enough to see if there is any type of 4-beat gait going on. I think I also read that they don't have the best temperaments either.

I don't know anything about gaiting, but I saw a programme on them. They are a stunning breed, and are worth their weight in gold to their owners.

I blame the temperament on the handling. Alot of the owners use makeshift bits and most have spikes. Yeah id be ill tempered too.
