Need some help

I just recently bought a my first horse. I have had leased horses for the past 15 years but I just bought 30 acres of land so I went searching for a horse that I could call my own. I found this darling mare, her name is Night Dance, and for the life of me can't tell what breed she is. She is gaited and has a wonderful temperament. I think that she is a Tennessee Walker cross or something. Cleo, as I call her, is around 14.2hh if that helps.

With her body being as long as it is, it almost looks to me like she is a Tennessee Walker and Saddlebred cross. We had one and her conformation was similar.

I think kywalkinghorse2010 is right. She has the head of a walker, but 14.2 is a little short for a full TWH.

There are quite a few more 14.2 and 14.3 purebred walkers out there, just check on DH. The show horses are usually the taller ones and the ones people see more of. I would like to see her gaiting since her color and confirmation is also very similar to some of the Rocky Mountain Mares.

She definitely. Looks Tennessee Walker to me :)

Her back looks too long to be a Rocky, I'd like to see her move too. I'd guess Walker.

A still photo shows almost nothing re breeding, here. A video of movement would help, but even gait means little beyond "grade gaited."

One of my friends said that she looks like a paso fino when she first saw her. Do you agree? And I will try to get a good picture of her gaiting.

Man that was faster than I thought! I found one of her old owner showing her that I downloaded onto my computer. Sorry it is kind of small.

Have to remember that at one time Rocky Mountain allowed walkers in as grade mares. I have seen some longer back Rocky mares that if you trace the bloodlines they will come into walkers.

Going by the pic a paso cross??
