A "gaited" horse is any breed whose natural intermediate gait is NOT a trot.

Oftentimes, those intermediate gaits are "enhanced" with various types of devices, but make no mistake, the horse was born with those gaits

Here's a great gaited horse history lesson for anyone that's interested

i don't have a gaited horse,however i have ridden several! everytime after I ride one i WANT one.

gaited horses are the cadillac of horses! pefect for people that have a bad back and can't sit the bumpiness of a trot very comfortably anymore.

as gaited horses are smooooooooth as they always have at least one foot on the ground during all the phases of the gaits.

people who have gaited horses say that once you own one it is VERY hard to go back to an un-gaited horse. once i rode one i can see why!


however those of you with gaited horses! it is NOT fair to show egg and spoon with un-gaited horses! you guys win all the egg and spoon classes!!! j/k.
