Many of the boarders at the barn I am at ride gaited horses now and I cannot believe how smooth that ride looks... I have a bit of a bad back already at only 27 due to scoliosis and know that as the years pass I won't be able to ride "regular" horses forever... But one thing I really like about my good ol' paint is that she is not forward. She is quiet and plods along... I haven't really seen this side of any gaited horse I've known thus far :(
So for those of you who have or know gaited breeds are there gaited horses out there that tend to be a bit more laid back but still have those great gaits?
