What is a Gaited Mule?
A gaited mule is any mule that has a smooth gait other than a walk, and one which is distinct from a trot. Gaits include single-foot, fox-trot, rack, running walk, stepping pace, and paso fino, among others.
Whatever the gait may be called, its primary virtue is smoothness. A gaited mule (or horse) can be ridden farther without discomfort from bouncing while trotting, and at a more manageable pace than a canter. A gaited mule is great for trail riding, also.
