Natural and Artificial Gaits of the Icelandic Horse

Some Icelandic Horses are naturally gaited; some are not. If a gait is *made* by mechanical means, it is artificial and not inheritable. We need to be careful to only show and evaluate natural gaits of the icelandic Horse to preserve the gaits in the breed. Mechanical (manipulated) gaits should not be allowed.
