The Driver

This non-gaited type was developed after the above two types,  when
widespread construction of roads allowed for the rise of coach travel.
It was a multi-purpose light horse, which could be used to ride or to
drive. For examples, see the Knabstrupper, Kladruber, Lippizan and other breeds that were used in the 1700's for both riding and as light coach horses.
