Are you sure that's what it's called? I googled it and found nothing...

Cantering in front and trotting behind sounds like a WP lope to me.

I tried googling as well and couldn't find anything. Definitely sounds like an incorrect WP lope

Either the OP is referring to a Tolt or the old (hopefull old) version of the Western pleasure lope but has shown up in the English canter where the impulsion is lost and the horse cannot maintain a true canter/lope in the rear.

I get what I called a prot or a panter -- pace with either trot or canter and I *HATE* both. I have never felt anything smooth that is half of one gait and half of another.

I was told that it was just another name for a WP lope, so instead of calling it a WP lope I just call it a Troke.

I've heard it called a trope (trot+lope)... do you think you could have misheard it?

I find it very uncomfortable to ride not to mention ugly.
It's generally frowned down on too since it is incorrect.

Im sad. I thought you found some magical gain :P
Only ever gaited I've ever rode was a pacer. Ouch.
