I learned something new..



Apparently some pure Appaloosa horses gait..!

Someone on facebook explained it to the general public.. but what's everyone's thoughts?

Hmmm that is interesting. But I do remember a while back seeing an ad on Craigslist for a Gaited Appaloosa. Pretty cool to watch.

Yep, the "Indian Shuffle" as I have heard it called. Pretty neat.

Indian Shuffle!! My friend sold a double-registered foundation QH gelding that did this. He would trot too, but he'd do this easy rack also if you knew how to old him in it.

I always wondered what people meant when the mentioned Indian Shuffle, LOL!

Cute horse, cute mover!

Yeah it's so interesting! I wish more Appys could do the Indian Shuffle.

my Mustang i am pretty sure does the Indian Shuffle. its actually pretty smooth but very hard to keep her in it as she was never trained to hold it.

Wow that's so cool, lil kitty! Is it smooth?

It reminds me kind of like those old movies/cartoons where they tiptoe all exaggerated so they aren't heard.
