I've had a lot of gaited horses & some cross breds-they all gaited plus some had the regualr gaits,too. really made it fun & interesting. Let my riding partner try out my Paso Fino last week-she was amazed,said it was like having a horse w/automatic transmission,so smooth & loved the speed. She was also happy her horse didn't try to buck me off-as she doesn't like other riders, & will usually buck a bit. We were 1/2 way through our ride though so neither one was fresh. I like having at least 1 gaited horse at all times & preferably a small one. Happy Gaiting!
