    CB .. I'm not sure anyone actually answered your question.

    Gaited horses refers to horses that gait differently than the "normal" walk, trot, canter (or walk, jog, lope) .. The do a "singlefoot", or a "running walk", or some other 4 beat gait that is VERY smooth to ride..

    Look up Rocky Mountain Horses, Paso Finos, or Tennesse Walking Horses (barefoot ones.. God, don't think those padded, sored horses are what we're talking about)

    Hope that helps!

    LOL! No problem. There is so much to say about gaited horses - all of the different gaits and breeds and then they all are individuals too, so they each have a different version of the movment. It would be 100 pages of posts to get all the info down.

    The ride is super sweet and smooth - and some of those boogers can gait over 10mph before they even feel the need to canter.

    I have a foxtrotter and a walker - foxtrotters kind of do a thing where they trot with their hind legs while the front legs walk (some can do other types of gaits)

    And walkers have a smooth intermediate gait where they walk really fast (so fast their manes and tails blow in the wind) and the rider just glides along - can even carry a can of soda and it won't even slosh.

    There is no bouncing - it is super nice!

    Here's a walker video:

    If you ever get offered a chance to ride a gaited horse, don't pass it up! It is very unique!

    I LOVE my gaited boy! He is so smooth and a dream to ride! The kids that don't know anything about their gaits say it reminds them of a cartoon because his feet move so fast! He is very flexible and even likes to run barrles!!!
