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. Some gaits are 

single-foot, fox-trot, rack,

running walk, stepping pace,

paso fino, and other smooth gaits.

Whatever the gait may be called, its primary virtue is smoothness.  The gaited mule (or horse, for that matter) can be ridden farther without discomfort from the bouncing one experiences at a trot, and at a more manageable pace than a canter.  A gaited mule is great for trail riding.
