This horse must be young - he is learning his gait and hasn't yet settled in enough to reach that 12 mph running walk that most people love to ride - but I think it is only a matter of a few months and he'll have it down. You are right, it is all natural without heavy keg shoes or pads. That is a horse I'd have in my pasture in a heart beat. Look how they've got him going in a plain O ring? Most gaited horses don't perform best in a plain snaffle - this guy is 'what you see is what you get' all natural. Most gaited horses if trimmed to their conformation (that means toes are regular and not long), taken out of their curb bits and put an a plain snaffle fall apart here and there and show their true colors. I see exactly what you mean - this guy has the genetics. I'd pay money for him!
