I have a typical foundation qh and paint with lots of TB in her. Yes, the canter feels different for both of them (qh's more "short", paint's more "wide" and fluid), but the speed and how smooth it is are about the same when they are balanced and respond to my cues. I'd say it's more about training than particular breed (although feeling could be different).
Congrats on new horse, BTW! :)
