Gaited Morgan gelding

Gaited Morgans

Gaited Morgans perform walk, canter, some may trot and one or more ambling gaits. Therefore, they perform both lateral and diagonal gaits. Current Gaited and non-gaited Morgans trace 19th century mixture Morgans, Saddlebreds, Thoroughbred and Standardbreds. The Morgan breed is not an overall gaited breed. UC Davis random sampling test showed 20% Morgans carried gait gene. Gait is inherited from generation to generation.
