My mom bought a rocky mountain horse - and if she has to buy another horse for some reason for herself, you bet your pennies it will be a gaited horse. My mom doesn't lope on him often, so I get to have all the fun and work him out at a lope. And man, if there was a race for gaited horses or any other horse (probably other than TB) I bet he would win because when I race with my friends to the other side of the arena on Chocky, he is to the other side while everyone else hasn't reached the halfway point yet!
But gaited horses are pretty.
The rocky mountain gaits are walk, trail walk, show gait, pleasure gait, lope.
But they call it differently for each breed, I couldn't find anywhere that said anything about the names of your breeds' gaits.
