my riding for all these years is walk walk walk. when im training a horse.twh. gaited in anyway.or just plain quarter horse.walk is the main gate used.. just before the owners come to get there horse..i start into trot.. canter. figure eights. reigning . i figure for every hour in the arena working they need about 3 hours outside of it.walking.trails. and normal keep them from getting to hot. most horses love to i find that the easiest part. but a natural head set walk. ears flopping. relaxed on a lose reign is hard to get your horse to do. anyways. just my two cents.. have enjoyed the topic alot.. ride safe everyone

Isn't indian trot another name for indian shuffle? Indian shuffle is gaiting.
