I can vouch for the fact that there are some gaited horses out there that will jar your teeth. That's why it is always wise to ride the gait and bit and see what it is. The mare I owned was a grade Rocky with a long back which tells me she probably had a lot of walker in her. Big overstrike that literally threw you back and forth in the saddle. By the end of the day I felt like my back had been realigned.
The true morgan is supposed to be a docile, steady eddy type of trail horse. Willing to work, pull a cart and deliver its rider safely down the trail. There are also a few of them that are gaited. I rode a mare that was morgan QH and boy was she a smooth trot. A lot like some of those western pleasure mares that can trot and barely move you off the street so you only have mild posting to it. Wish I still had her.
