Arabian floating trot?

So, I just heard about this apparent glorious floating trot arabians have, so since I have a quarab, I wanted to check it out, read about it....

And I dound squat..... LOL!

I found no description other than "check out this amazing floating trot", or and videos... well maybe a few, but Im not seeing much of a difference. Not sure if that's what Im used to seeing in my horses or if its not much of a difference to begin with....

And on a side note: I've been told by others who have ridden my mare that she is smooth, but I wouldnt say that, lol.... Not because she doesnt, but bcI have no clue how to keep my butt in that seat, lol....

My mare does the floaty trot thing, but only when she is wound up. Tail up, head up, seems like she is trotting about a foot above the ground. She only does it when nervous or excited. I have no idea if she does it when I'm on her...when she winds up, I normally want to get off ASAP & try to calm her down.

Some Arabs have that floaty movement, while others don't. My horse is halter bred and he has a fairly nice trot, and my friends Arab (also halter bred) has a really awful looking trot. It all depends on the horses personality, breeding, and training.
