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.
