^ I agree. Tell that to my little filly, she's smooth as butter!
I find roughness of gait corresponds almost directly with the length and slope of the pastern. A short, upright pastern will be more rough than a longer, more sloped pastern. That doesn't mean that with some training, a rough horse can learn to lift its back, use its haunches, and give you a nice, smooth ride.
