Really? I knew that some of the more traditional appies had a sort of 'shuffle' , but I didn't know about the QHs! That's interesting.
Should I be discouraging her from the rack? Our BO has some experience with Peruvian Pasos (not sure exactly what gaits they have) since his last horse was one, and his current colt is a half, but no one else is really trained for gaited horses. She's ridden by our more advanced lesson kids, the BO's daughter, and I. I personally don't like it at all. I'm not fond of giraffe necks.
