If he trots and he can really cover a lot of ground with each stride, he could be a standardbred as they can trot naturally or pace. My first horse was a stardardbred trotter and he could go miles at the trot, never paced tho'.
One time I was riding a horse (not a standardbred) and I was out riding with a friend and she was riding her standardbred mare, we were trotting and I pushed my horse faster, the mare kept up easily. Just out of curiosity I wondered how fast she could trot so I moved to a canter, she trotted right beside me, so I upped it to a good gallop and she still trotted effortlessly beside me.
