Re: [RC] Gaited horses 'artificial' gaits - A. Perez

"but I would question the accuracy of an author who lists all 
the soft and lateral gaits as "artificial" 

What a hoot!  My unregistered TWH/Racking gelding was trained by
a non-gaited horse trainer (fprmer arab trainer) as a pleasure 
horses, never had any special trimming, shoeing, devises or 
training.  At liberty he trots, paces, running-walks, caters, 
cross-canters (does that under saddle too, unfortunately), and 
some undefineable variations on all of the above... and changes 
effortlessly from one to the other minute-by-minute sometimes!  
Sometimes I think he is trying to be a one-horse illustration 
of all gaits known to man and equine! All this is entirely un-
taught, on his own. Hardly 'artificial'!
