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

Four beat is smoother and last longer then two beat. Just a fact. As far as smoothness in riding. Give me a good four beat gate. Low head set. Ears flapping. And im in heaven. 30 years of walkers and I love them. Im back to quarter horses.. and do miss a good walker at times. Like when im way back in the mountains..hit a good open logging road..20 miles to get out. I really really miss a good running walk right then..lol.. ride safe everyone.
