    I have ridden an arab mare that racked!  (pure

belonged to a friend that I was riding with, so I
mentioned it.. she said "Yes, she racks.  I used to
ride her with a walking horse and she picked it up."
  Personally, I didn't think it possible, but she
definately was racking.  

It used to be relatively common for Arabians to rack
or otherwise gait.  *Raseyn (by Skowronek) was
well-known for it, as were others.  Several of mine
have walks that border on some sort of "gaiting," but
I don't know enough about gaited training to help them
do even more.  But, every AERC ride I've been on so
far I've been asked at least once if my mare is
gaited. :)
