Ask them to show you, if he's gaited you'll get a very comfy ride :)
Then you can ask what kind of bit he's used too and so on too.

''Gait'' is just a word to include all special gaits that ''gaited'' horses has insted of or extra from the normal gaits that all horses has. Youtube running walk, rack, stepping pace etc to see how the different gaits look.

With the risk of making a bigger fool of myself than I already am, this is an old video of Crow gaiting, with my comments on it too.
I would guess that I'm wrong with most of the judemet, and he's not very good at it, but it's him ''gaiting''. I wish I could say it was better now, but I just don't know anymore. I'm so cofused.. I think it's become better but as far as I know it can just be worse too.. he's a tad bit less lateral and a bit more diagonal now, but he's still very smooth.

Ok, here goes, feel free to bully us :P

I'd say any horse is capable of a gait, whether they're naturally gaited or not. Some of the naturally gaited horses gait in the field and others you only ever see gait under saddle. When I first started riding gaited horses, the folks I was riding with explained to me that I needed to get the horse to collect, and then they'd get in their gait. That meant that I needed to give a little pressure with my legs and a little pressure in their mouth, not much, and that would put them in their gait. I wouldn't want to go trail riding with a horse that had to be constantly convinced to gait, but the trick works when you're training them or getting them in the groove. You could try that with your horse to see if he'll do it at all.

Peacefully commenting on the other side of that coin:

I own three Tennessee Walkers who range in age from coming 13 to 21-1/2 and all with different blood lines. I have never had to collect any of them up to get them in their gaits.

I am sure breeds whose standards allow for trotting and gaiting need to be collected up, but breeds whose standards don't allow for trotting should not have to constantly be collected up to gait. Maybe when they are young, but again, I've owned two of my three since they were coming three year olds and neither ever had to be collected up to get them into their gait

They all gait at liberty in the pasture but two of them will mimic my trotting Arab if they happen to be behind him
