Nope, the gaits of a standard horse is: Walk, Trot/Jog, Canter/Lope, Gallop. Some breeds of horses have unique gaits such as the Tennessee Walker, or the Missouri Fox Trotter, etc. Unless you have a fancy horse that somehow you trained to skip, or if its another name you have given to a gait, horses CANNOT skip.
The Missouri Fox Trotter has a longer body, with good strong bones, they have larger heads, and thicker necks, they also have a smaller buttox than some other breed ex: Quarterhorse, thoroughbred.

Well a purebred Fox Trotter will have papers and be registered with it's correct breed association. Otherwise you have to look at the horses gaits and figure out if it fox trots or not.
After years of experience with trail horses I would say that Missouri Fox Trotters have the same number of vertebrae as most other breeds. The notable exception is the purebred Arabian which has one less vertebra than other breeds. Sometimes gaited horses belonging to breeds developed especially to provide horses with comfortable gaits like the Missouris Fox Trotter which can move in a gait where its front hooves have a long stride while hind hooves trot may appear to have a longer body. The Mountain horse breeds like the Rocky Mountain Horse which move with an asynchronous four-beat gait (each hoof strikes the ground separately) can appear to have a longer body than, say a Quarter Horse.
