It pretty much boils down to how the pasterns are, how the shoulder sits, with all parts coming together to give that smooth ride. I would definitely say always take a test drive before buying. You cannot ride the bumpiness out of a horse if the confirmation isn't there.

One important thing is to make sure the horse has good collection, that helps to give the smoothest ride I have found.

my little appy (got to have QH in him, as he looks a lot like one) has got the BUMPIEST trot ever, his lope isn't bad, though.

i started riding some horses for a gal last week, and the gelding is bumpy, too. his lope isn't bad and man he can run... the younger mare is a lot smoother than he is. have yet to get on the third one.

in comparison my wife's TB has got the world's smoothest trot. i can't NOT post his trot because it's just too dang natural.

it all depends on the horse and how they're built.
