With all gaited breeds, there are many who don't gait well, and some who don't gait at all.

Yes... you can also train them to trot as well. At one point there was a breeder in Quebec who bred rockies for dressage.

I have a Mulit-Gaited Rocky. I am new to gaited horses, and am not 100% sure on how to get him to do different gaits. I can get him to trot and I can get him to "gait" but I once went to a small local show and the judge was a gaited horse person. She was SO impressed that I got my rocky to do 3 different "gaits" in pleasure class. Lol. I had to tell her I had no idea how or what he did. But sure, Rockys can trot...

Before you go stereotyping an entire breed, perhaps you should do some research - out of all the standardbreds I've retrained after the track, only 1 has continued to pace. The others all go w/t/c easily, and don't fall back into pacing.

My friend with her OTTSTB gelding, who was my very first horse, and I retrained (shown at his first event where he placed first) -


And this was another one I started, picture taken on ride number 5, his first time being asked to go faster than a walk... naturally picked up a lovely trot. This horse was a pacer who earned 120k over 7 years of racing, including several stakes races in NY.
