Every gaited horse, no matter their way of going, has a speed range where they are in correct form for the gait being performed. If you over-ride that form by asking for too much speed it is common to loose the "smooth" factor.
Some have a wider range than others, but all have it. The rider can expand the range by some amount by ensuring that the horse is strong and fit. Still, not every horse will be a speed racer.
