Saddlebred owners/trainers! How can you tell if a saddlebred is naturally 3 gaited, or 5 gaited? I always wondered about this...saddlebreds are classified as "gaited" but I have never rode one that is smooth like a TWH. Can a saddlebred actually be smooth gaited like a TWH, or are they simply classified as gaited because they can have special gaits such as the rack, or slow gait? The guy I almost bought a year ago was just walk, trot, canter. Very choppy trot. So he must have been 3 gaited? He was young too though, maybe he was 5 gaited but needed a professional trainer? just curious!
