Smoothest gaited horse breed-which is it and can you afford it?

Hi there Smooth Riders all.

All gaited horse breeds are smooth to ride, but which is the smoothest gaited horse breed?

Well the word is still out on that.

Peruvian Paso owners and breeders will fiercely argue that their breed is the smoothest ride.

Icelandics fans will hotly insist that their darlings are the smoothest gaited horse breed!

Perhaps they’re both the Smoothest gaited horse breed

Having trained individuals of both breeds I can vouch for their extreme smoothness.

Both are able to carry the rider, even at high speed,  and with great action of the fore legs, with next to no movement in the saddle!

Also, both breeds make outstanding trail ride horses. They are very willing to go forward and are as sure-footed as mules.

I’ll leave the word out for now and will leave my riding readers to decide.

Compare the two breeds in the videos below and make up your mind.

Which is the smoothest gaited horse breed folks?





Can you afford the horse you want?


My question now is can you afford to buy the equine of your choice?

Not all sayings are true, but I know, from my own experience as a horse owner that the old adagio, of happy but poor horse owners, sure is!


Looking for ways to make enough money


If you are anything like me you are looking for ways to make enough money so you can get more out of life than just work.

I was looking for something I could do from home to earn enough to spend more time riding and training my horses.

I tried one program after the othero, but the only ones getting richer were the owners of those Scams.


I tell you I was ripe and ready to give up


I was ready to give up when one day my eyes caught on the name Wealthy Affiliate.

The title was “Is Wealthy Affiliate a Scam?”

I thought O yeah! Here’s another Scamster! I kept reading until I read “Join for FREE!”

That’s when it hit me; None of those Get Rich Quick schemes ever offered me to Try it out for Free! So I joined!


Soon as I started learning, suspicion melted away. I was Home!


I was still reluctant, still suspicious, but as soon as I started learning it all melted away. I was welcomed by a minimum of 100 old members on my first day wanting me to know that I was welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Family and that they were there for me, if I needed help or just wanted to chat.

I almost started crying with relief. That’s when this warm and wonderful feeling of finally being Home rushed over me, and I’ve never looked back since!

This is for real folks, so when you are ready to give Wealthy Affiliate a try, for FREE click on the WA banner below.

  1. Hey Goran! Great article. I love horses ever since I worked on a ranch in outback Australia where I learnt to ride. Chasing sheep and the like.

    On to this wealthy Affiliate thing, is it really free? Are there lots of upsells once I sign up?

    I’m just so weary of online scams, I just don’t know….


    1. Hey Anthony
      Thanks for liking my article, or my pot of Gold (Gold to the users that is) as I like to think of it. Happy to hear you love horses. That makes you one of my favourite people Lol.

      I guarantee you, Wealthy Affiliate is Free for as long as you like. Then there are of course different paid tools that will really enhance and speed up your progress. Going Premium will cost you $49, paid monthly or $369 yearly.

      The FREE experience will get you where you want to go, same as a one gear horse will, walking, but riding all the gaits is more fun and gets you there faster, if you follow my drift. In the end it’s all up to you my friend.

  2. Hello,

    To answer your last question, I wish I could afford a horse. It was a dream of mine for a very long time. But for me, that day has passed, various broken bones and outgrowing my youth!

    But the good news is that I do have Grandson and we live in Upstate New York and that does leave me time to share my love of horses with them.

    I will be looking to you for advice,


    1. The fact is Gloria, very few can actually afford a horse. Way to go is giving up, what we used to view as necessities, such as food and clothing lol.

      Sorry to hear about the broken bones and outgrowing your youth. Does your grandson keep horses? If so congrats and by all means; I’m always happy to advise on horses. Anytime Gloria.
