Short, functional definition: A "gaited" horse is one that does not use the trot as its intermediate gait.

Google "gaited horses" and you will get millions of hits.

I love to show off our gaited horses. First link is to the second fastest horse ever recorded. Some will agrue about the actual speed, but it has been verified by some pretty good video experts. This is Ezd's Falcon Rowdy, one of the foundation sires of the the singlefooting association(Shoba). It's reported, his top end, in this video he was 51 mph, The only other horse ever recorded faster, was a racing QH at 52 mph.


heres another nice one


here's a nice TWH


another nice one

And then there was the 2012 Racking on the Edge. I took my wife's horse thru the radar in a full rack at 34 mph.

The fastest pacer was the grey you see running us down along the side lines. He was traveling 33 mph when he came down thru there. We were in the group getting out of his way.

That looks like fun. I'd love to have a racking horse, but there really aren't any for sale in California.

Odin's gray horse Sleipner was said to have eight legs. Count this boy's feet when he opens up.

Nothing like this up in New England. Wish there was.
