This thread is very interesting.

I have been riding for so long, and have never crossed paths with a gaited horse. However my job entails working with and care of TWHs and Peruvian Paso Finos.

I was totally baffled on their movement. I knew it was gaited, obviously, but I never knew what it was called or how to ask for it/how to ride it.

Live to jump-
Peruvian Paso and Paso Finos are a different breed. They both are a very fun ride!

You mean they always gait? O_o how annoying..
I knew it took some effort to get Crow to walk normally (and he's still faster than most other horses here, but he is walking calmly and it's not worse than the differense between ''normal'' horses), but he was never really gaiting unless I said so. Just rushing a bit in the walk and trying to fall on his nose, or so it felt :P

But I've heard the tip ''never let your horse do a slow walk, always keep it at the line to running walk/gait'' .. tho I never thought it would be that bad, I mean..I figured it was just when training for the gait, not as in..always, forever..O_o
