Q: Does the body build of the Teke affect the gaits?
A: On gaits I would like to say that he gaits of the Tekes are the most
comfortable you can find.
The canter is so smooth that you feel that you easily canter the whole day
without being tired or sore.
The Tekes have been bred for being comfortable to ride. They are easy to
collect and are very elastic and athletic horses. The trot is also very
comfortable as the Tekes haven't got as big, airy movements as the
The Tekes also have long pasterns which will make that gaits more
comfortable for riders.
The Tekes also jump very smooth, like panthers.
