I haven't decided on which breed yet, so I am still doing research. Having trouble finding a RM farm in central valley of California. Anyone have any info? Going to the coast to look at a couple of Paso breeders. Still looking, want the smoother ride, faster gait, but luv my qtrs.

We loved our qtrs also but have been more than happy with our mountian horses - they have the size and agility that we adored without the trot (that I began to not adore). Not sure how close Oakdale is to you but can recommend the Billy & Fran Odom - they have a nice moutain horse breeding & training facility. Check out thieir site at odomsmountainhorses.com

You might want to check out Beverly Frost Training - she has owed and trainned 100s of breeds but specializes in gaited horses including Rocky Mountain horses. Allgoodhorses.com

Both could likely recommend breeders in your area. To get a full immersion, take a trip to Mountain horse country. The information you gain is amazing - as are the people and horses - my favorite starting point is Staton KY - good accommodations and access to hundreds of large and small mountain horse farms. Check out Vanbertfarms.com - they have cabins overlooking patures of horses, trails, obstacle courses, horses and tons of information to share. Learning is half the fun. Enjoy.

Although, every horse is unique, the mountain horse has been bred specifically for a natural gait and calm disposition. A good choice for a smooth and safe ride for you and your grandchildren.

Hey - we are organizing a group from the West Coast to make the haul to Kentucky to start with the United Mountain Horse World show in early Sep and ending with the 2010 Equestrian Games late Sep. Of course riding and visiting the beautiful KY country side in between. We will be taking it fairly easy - planning on a number of stops on the way - but some folks will be flying and hooking up with us in Lexington. If you have any interest, send me a private message so we don't clutter this thread.
