I have seen a lot of Missouri Foxtrotters and a few other gaited breeds on the Santa Fe/Taos and Albuquerque craigslist. I think there are two breeder/ranches that raise just gaited horses somewhere in northern New Mexico and at least one in the mid-lower part of the state.
I live in the Four Corners region just 45 min from Co and I looked forever for a gaited horse. Found a Missouri Foxtrotter close by. Tennessee Walker was also my first choice but they sell fast and with none local I had to travel hours at a time and had two sold on the day I was traveling to see them. VERY FRUSTRATING. Good Luck.

"Bob says look at the papers, but I respectfully disagree, where trail riding is concerned."

Negative, negative, never said look at papers, I said look for blood lines, not necessarily registered. There is a huge number of unregistered Cupid's Arrow off spring in the country. All over the country.

I have no idea what line the McCurdy mare went to. His notes just say McCurdy, dam.

My boy is not registered. He's a gelding, and I see no reason to register him. He takes care of the wife, and that's good enough. Nothing more need be said about this boy. Although, I wish she'd let me show him in the Nationals. He gps at 36 mph, in a full blown classical rack. But she says," your not going to hurt my boy".
walkinthewalk and chrislynnet like this.

Boy, today is my day for "cerebral flatulence."

Take a look at the Mangalarga Marchador. Outstanding trail horse. Likely the nearest folks to you are either Summerwind in Pagosa Springs Summerwind Marchadors, Inc. or Flying Oaks in OK Home Tell them Bill from TN sent you!

There are at least two breeders in MT but that may be too far away. If you go to the USMMA website U.S. Mangalarga Marchador Association (USMMA) for a full list of breeders.

Hey Rosann -
You are in Bloomfield? I am in Durango. Thanks for the reply, but yes I agree; very frustrating here in regard to gaited horses. I have been told there are wonderful trainers in Santa Fe. I would love to check them out but at the same time, we have precious Summer months for riding, and leaving my horse so far away does not sit well with me; Winter or Summer.

We are just keeping our eyes open. Maybe I will see you on the trail someday. I sometimes ride in Cemetery Wash in Aztec -

Yes, just outside Bloomfield right next to BLM. Unfortunataly I am one of those horse owners not lucky enough to have a trailer. Mostly ride out in the wilderness behind my house. However, this July my friend from Santa Fe is coming up, picking up my horse and I and we will be camping above Lemon.
If you have your horse by then, get in contact. Maybe you can meet up with us. We will be camping a whole week. We have never riden the trails.

Lemon is a beautiful area. I have a friend who used to ride up there all the time; she loved it. You guys should have a great time.... and the weather should be lovely.

We can keep in touch; if nothing else, I can pop up, say hello and introduce myself!

That horse in bbfmfg's post may be tall but it is all legs. There is no depth of body. Are you looking for a stouter horse to carry some weight or just something tall?

There is a spayed Missouri Foxtrotter Mare on Albuqureque's craigslist.
