So I Dont Know Where To Go From Here. Disipline Challenged

Alright. So here is the issue I am having. I recently purchased a tennessee walker qh cross a few months back. I am 100% sure he is gaited. I have never owned a gaited horse before and do not know what their limits are for different diciplines of riding. If any.

I have ridden mostly english all my life and western for about 5 yrs. I don't know where I should go with my boy's training. I like all kinds of diciplines. Jumping. Dressage. Barrels. Western pleasure. Trails. But there is still that lack of knowledge on gaited horses. O.O

I don't know what they can do. What they cannot do. Is there anything special I should be doing in his training since he is gaited? I know there is supposively not such thing as a stupid question. But I still feel stupid asking. Sorry if this is not in the right spot. I am very confused in general.
Until someone helps me out I shall still be confused :)

First and foremost, he's a horse. Treat him like a horse. If he's physically incapable of doing something, he'll let you know. Likewise, if you pay attention, he'll probably tell you what his strengths are and point you toward the direction to take him.

They're not all mutually exclusive. You could do dressage, show jumping and trails and the same time. Probably some of the others too but I wouldn't know.
