I have a MFT and he can trot but it's not good for a gaited horse to trot...(Atleast not TWH or MFT) They also have a MAJOR head bob thing going on with their gait. They have to do it and there really isn't any changing it. I love my MFT and would NEVER trade him, but don't feel like that would be a good fit for one....I could be wrong though!
I think the Saddlebred idea is an excellent one. They are so elegant and smooth!
