I've trained 2 mares, 1/2 sisters, who were out of the same Arabian mare.  The dam was not gaited, but both babies, out of different TWH stallions, were gaited.  But then, I also have owned 2 gaited Arabian stallions...(still have 1).

Could be the baby picks up the gait by imitating mommy. Sometimes Peruvian people say to gait a young or ill-gaited horse alongside a "locked-in" one in the hopes the ability will rub off.

I have heard that too...that if one wants a gaited half Arab (or a gaited horse that his half non-gaited), then to make sure that the gaited parent is the mare for the greatest chance of getting gait.  I've known of 6 horses that were half of a gaited breed (2 Arab/Paso Finos, 2 Arab/TWH, 1 Morgan/MFT, and 1 Arab/RMH).  All were gaited, and in all cases, the dam was the gaited breed.  Of course, we need some examples the other way, with the gaited parent beng the sire, to see if "the rule" works.  <G>

Hello RC,
 
  Someone told me that a gaited horse gets it's "gait" from the mother.  I know of some 1/2 arabs that gaited very well.  But they were out of gaited mares.  Does anyone know how true this rumor is?  Could an arab mare have a gaited offspring?

PS.  Cash Pony I believe would gait if trained that way...but his mother was the TWH.
