Gaited horses do not trot. Instead, they do another, smoother gait.

I know that the OP has a Missouri Foxtrotter and a Paso Fino. I ride and show Tennessee Walkers.

Gait, Oo never hear anything like that before. Is with ridden and inhand or just one? X

It is ridden, and in-hand. They do it in the pasture, too.


I'm sure the OP can give more insight on the other gaits.

Oo I have never seen that before! How do you get them to do it? OR is it natural? X

It's all natural.

Oh wow, can they also trot? Or is this like their trot? X

They do not trot under anything but bizarre circumstances. As I said, they gait INSTEAD of trotting. ;)

Hmm, wonder why we don't have them over here. Doesn't look very comfortable to ride x

It's EXTREMELY comfortable. You do not bounce. You never post. You glide. ;)
