What is a
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.
