Actually, I've never seen an Saddlebred that wasn't gaited. I've heard that sometimes they won't have the extra gaits, but I've just never seen one that didn't. Of course I've heard the same about all gaited breeds (that some of them don't have the extra gaits) Even my crosses have the Saddlebred gaits of their ASB parent.

It was the gaits that helped make Saddlebreds and Morgans the darlings fo the US Cav, since around the 1850's (although what became the Saddlebreds were just known as Saddler, Kentucky Saddler or Saddle Horse that far back). Many horse breeds met the Cav qualifications, but those two breeds tended to be the most prefered.

This is one of my Saddlebred/Frisian crosses. Her rack looks nice and should be an easy ride. Looking forward to it after I put her under the saddle next year.

These are all gaited horses I have had in the past.
Cricket - Grade Walker

Shelby - Spotted Saddle Pony (thats me trimming her) My first pony


Spirit - Spotted Saddle Pony - Shelby's foal

Rusty - Walker/Paint Cross Naturally gaited, like his mother (shelby) and Brother (Spirit.) Rusty was born gaiting

Fancy - walker? Saddlebred? We know she has walker in her, she flat walked but she might be mixed with saddlebred

Flower Bug - Paint/Walker? Mix she was the daughter of Fancy She would gait some when running with the other horses, but she was sold as a yearling.

Foal
Hi, lovely horse...I recently acquired my first Mis. Foxtrotter, and I love, love, love her! OMG! She is a mover, and faster than many other gaited horses in the area. Plus she is 15 y/o, with awesome bloodline, and a proven mare, BUT,Im getting pressured by an excellent horsewoman who has a young, unproven standardbred stud to breed her next year with him. I am told I might get a speed-racking horse. Eaxctly what does that mean and why should I do this?? Anyone that can help, all information would be greatly appreciated.

You have been very fortunate to get gaited out of a cross. Most saddlebreds arent gaited and making a cross that is gaited is surprising. Do you have video of the gaiting? No offense, but I am wondering if the horse is truly gaiting or of its just pacing. Pacing isnt a true 'gait' for the saddlebred. Much talk amongst the saddlebred people that the gaited asb's are getting more and more pacey, even at the upper levels.

Honestly, I would flat out tell her no. I don't want to offend you, I obviously don't know her. Is she offering a free breeding? Kind of sounds like she is just trying to get a foal on the ground by her unproven stud. I SERIOUSLY doubt you would get a speed racker, Standardbreds only trot or pace, neither is really conducive to getting a speed racker IMO. Also, I doubt it could be registered. If you really feel the need to breed her, find a good Foxtrotter stud that has the qualities you want, at least that way you would have a registered foal with good bloodlines that is more likely to be bought if it's not what you want. People are basically giving horses away right now because they can't afford the hay and grain and breeders aren't breeding because people aren't buying. To me, there are way too many good horses out there looking for good homes at extremely reasonable prices to breed for a cross that may or may not be gaited and probably can't be registered. Jusy my opinion:)

Totally agree......Someone in our area is trying to sell a Kentucky mountain horse filly - first of all she wouldn't be KMSHA since she is a paint from a paint cross which would be spotted mountain horse if she gaited which she doesn't. That makes a grade paint. But the owner keeps listing her s a KMSHA. So far she isn't selling and the price keeps lowering - soon she will be at an auction, so sad.

Here's our new girl. Our first gaited horse. Satin is an older mare, a MO Foxtrotter.

I totally agree, now that I read your posting. I do feel she wants to see what her stud will get, and yes, I am extremely distressed over the fate of so mmany helpless horses due to cheap owners. We live literally a couple miles from the MEX border, and you hear about it everyweek about horses going to "auction",,cowards cannot even say what it really means...going to be butchered (UGH!). I hate even thinking it myself!
So, I also will set out in the early spring to look for a MO Foxtrotter Stud. If you know of any, let them know about my post.

Ive had gaited horses for about 34 or 35 years now and it has become a serious addiction for me.

Here's a picture of my 14 year old 15.1 hand ,Kentucky Natural Gaited mare Little Sky Dancer being ridden by my son Levi .



Here is a picture of her first son Mystery Warrior. He's 7 year old 15.1 hands and a real sweetheart.



This is a 12 year old, 14.2 ,Kentucky Natural Gaited mare that I recently sold named Sippin' Hot Cocoa. I actually rescued this mare twice from being starved to death. The first time I rescued her she was pregnant by my stallion and was lucky to make it . Her foal was born healthy as well and is now a rather tall sweet natured 3 year old.
