Missouri Fox Trotter people where are you?
I have rescued a MFT Stud who was in REALLY bad shape. I know next to nothing about he breed but did it because I have spinal issues and thought if I could get him to ride maybe he would be good for me too. Well we took our first official ride today and it was AMAZING! When he found his pace I could have done that for days. And he was SO good if I asked him something he didn't understand he would just try his hardest to please me until he got it. We jumped logs, swam a pond. Frankly I'm not that great a rider, and I wasn't real sure about riding a stud horse, but he couldn't have made me happier. So I want to know more about this breed from the people that ride them. Is he typical of the breed, do I have to be careful not to lope? I know they were bred orginally to do it all from pull a plow to work cattle and then pull the carriage on Sunday's. I have access to a small buggy and would love to teach him to do that but I have NO CLUE....oh well live and learn
