Working with a Half Breed.

I have a three year old half TWH/ half Am. Standard Bred or Saddle Bred. While I know TWH and MFT very well I have never even met the other possible halves. I was hoping for some insite into how Standard and Saddle gait as compaired to TWH. This mare is really trotty and I am at the point of weither to keep her or not.

When outcrossing to a non-gaited horse the result may or may not get the "gait."

We bought a Marchador mare in foal to a Andalusian. Got a lovely filly but no gait. Sold her to a lady and she ultimately ended up as a very successful junior-level event horse.

How old is the horse and is it under saddle? Sometimes you'll get gait under saddle and trot in the field; I've not heard of the reverse.

She is undersaddle and can gait a bit. I was really wanting a comparison of the TWH gait and a Saddlebred gait and Standard bred gait.

All three breeds are gaited. I know that a fox trotter/ walker mix will walk before foxtrot but beable to do both but be less likely to rack.

Thanks for the Insight!
