TWH, Mountain, Missouri Fox Trot

i am a big fan of TWH and Mountain Horses but reading alot about the Missouri Foxtrotters.

I have watched countless videos on youtube and just trying to get a feel of a foxtrotter gait. Do they rack? Or is the fast stepping walk the foxtrot? Sorry Im an idiot on the foxtrotters.

Ive not been active with horses in years. I am glad to see the Mountain Horses are so popular. 20+ years ago, I spend alot of time in the KY Mtns riding and those Mtn Horses were everywhere. id never seen or ridden one but fell in love with a good Racking Horse that you could ride all day.

Thanks for having me.

Yes they can move quickly in it. Usually 12 mpg being tops, but some have been clocked at a speed up to 14 while still holding correct form and performing the gait correctly. It is also ridiculous how smooth and comfortable it is :)

You have to learn how to fall before you can learn how to ride~
