Some Arabians are. I had one. First time he did it I thought he was just trotting super smooth, but my friend and trainer said it's the Arabian shuffle.

Rusty, 4year old cowboy reject (as usual - as soon as some Arabian blood runs through a horse the way of old style ranch/cowboy training (saddl'm up and go!) doesn't work):

Wait a minute! Arabs can be gaited?? What the...!

My sister's mare, Neysara, was 1/2 Appaloosa and 1/2 Polish Arab, and riding her was like riding a snake, or maybe more like a cat. She could go anywhere: up, down, climb a tree... I swear, she could go up and down embankments that were virtually vertical. Agile, but rough!

Her son, 3/4 Polish Arab and 1/4 Appaloosa was nothing like her at all. He was flashy and eye-catching: always prancing and showing off, but, although beautiful, he was sort of scorned by the serious riders, because he couldn't even trot correctly. Take him out on a trail, though, and he was the best! By far the most comfortable horse I have ever ridden, and he could do his little non-trot shuffle for miles and barely break a sweat. He would be as perky after 15 miles as he was when we began. I wonder... could he have been gaited? I really never heard of such a thing!

Coincidence, I just read Rabiyas, sire of Abu Farwa, was 5-gaited and a favorite at the Sunday Kellogg ranch shows in the 40's........

Huh? Arabs are standards of Walkers and others? Had Arabs and crosses for 40 years and only met one that did a running walk (unless they were TWH crosses or something similar). Had to trot to keep up with the dude.
Mostly, I believe, Arab gaits are walk, trot, canter, gallop, gallop faster and jig.

Green Broke
Was actually a Polish stallion that gaited like a walker, and passed it on, actually crops up from time to time.
A true Appy/arab cross could make a good hardy trail or endurance horse, but you never know till it actually hits the ground with crosses. Like was pointed out earlier depends on the stock. The color only breeders have ruined many appy lines and basically bred out all traits except the color.

I have just started to play with this five year old mare, out of a nice little arab mare by a very nice appaloosa stallion.
Awesome temperament, super quick learner, curious and confident.
She is for sale in central scotland, please pm me if interested.

I had just had this 50% Araloosa colt this year. I also have 2 Araloosa fillies this year (I had 3 in 2013, 1 in 2010). But this guy was gaited. His Arabian had Raseyn 2x in his pedigree (known for being gaited). And his dam was linebred several times through Old Fred I believe to a Saddlebred mare. I believe that's how he ended up with his Indian Shuffle. Sadly I just lost this little treasure to a tragic accident.
