Question about riding a gaited horse

I am about to buy back a gaited gelding I sold 4 years ago. Long story as to why I sold him. Well I ended up getting a QH to ride barrels. Not getting into barrels and getting my gaited gelding back. Can I ride him wrong and mess him up?

I'm not sure of the question?

If you rode him before, why would you mess him up now?

Sure you could -same as you could ruin a dressage horse, a barrel horse, or a jumper if they aren't ridden properly. If he is naturally gaited if you bung him up he can be fixed with help and guidance from experience. If you're not sure how to ride him in gait, I would suggest lessons so you can learn the right movement. What is the breed?

Were you able to ride him before in gait?
