As my knowledge goes, Standardbreds pace and trot... I always thought pacers were the Standardbreds who wore hobbles, and trotters didnt lol. I own three ex-pacers, and they all know how to trot under saddle. Two break into pacing now and then, Bailey does it to annoy the cr*p out of you (she likes to wobble around lmao)... and Honey's only just learning under saddle, and was sacked from racing earlier this year. So she sometimes (very rarely) paces when I ask for the trot. Both horses have lovely big trots on them. Evo just trots, and has a pretty solid three beat canter - both in which he's done since I've had him. When we backed and started him to saddle last year, he never paced, and never has paced under saddle. He's an exception to the rule though, most Standardbred gaits have to be worked on, but it's easy with some patience and right training to stop pacing.
I didn't know there was other breeds that paced. I just thought it was a Standardbred racing thing. I'd like to know more about other breeds that pace!
