I am personally sicked with the Arabian form or HUS with their small strided trosts and almost still canters I feel sooo bad where as the QHs cover ground!!!
FYI arabians are built differently and have naturally shorter strides... that's not to say they have short strides at all. Some arabs feel like warmbloods. Still canters? Sure, we don't tear around the ring, but in order to have a well rounded, collected horse some speed is lost, yes.
