Hi everyone! I am currently looking into purchasing a gaited, beginner/husband safe trail horse and have narrowed my search down to a TWH and a MFT. I was just wondering if anyone can explain the major differences between each breed, and maybe if one is a better/smoother ride for trails than the other? I hear gaited horses move a bit faster than non-gaited so one downside is if I go on a group ride with my AQHA friends, I can plod along with them until they break out in a trot and then I may end up moving away from the group with a faster paced, gaited horse. Any other opinions/experiences? I am at a toss up for which one I like better between the two horses I am looking at, both are really nice, safe and sane, beginner trail horses.
