    Appalachian Singlefoot?

    I've never heard of them before, also, could someone describe their gait to me? It's described as a "broken trot." What exactly are they? I figured out they existed by this horse for sale ad: Rowdy Rawhide's GTO Single footer for sale in Cleveland, Texas :: HorseClicks

    Probably just a racking horse with a different name.

    He's probably a singlefooter. The singlefoot and the rack are the same gait.

    Too bad they don't have a better video. He's doing a stepping pace in the video, when he's not fighting the bit. Ridden right he'd most likely have a nice rack.

    I'm guessing this horse is a descendant of Falcon Rowdy, who was one of the best single foot rackers ever.
    They pretty much call them single footers if they don't know a set breed.

    The horse could have a nice gait if his rider fit him a little more and if she fit her saddle.
