Question What breed could she be?

I'm not very familiar with gaited horses and there is one where I board one of my horses. No one knows what breed she is and I was just wondering if anyone might be able to tell just from this video of her owner riding her, she is the chestnut horse with the rider wearing the blue shirt(since sometimes it's hard to see the horse's color)

Nope, I think she said she got her from an auction. They think she may be a paso fino tho. Although that is just their guess

I'm going to guess and say that she might be a foxtrotter and paso fino cross. She moves and looks like a paso fino, but that gait that she was doing reminds me of a foxtrotter. Whatever she is, looks like a pretty horse.

not a very good video to tell but looked Peruvian type to me. A paso fino is choppier and faster leg movements and most have a crooked tail. Fox trotters walk in b ack and trot in front so she didn't look fox trotter and she didn't move like a walking horse either

I think the fox trot is the opposite of what you described. It is a trot in back and walk in front.

Walking in back and trotting in front more closely resembles a running walk, not a fox trot.

I'm not on Facebook though so I can't see the video. Not that I would be able to tell anyway- I am pretty green when it comes to gaited horses. But I do own a Fox Trotter.

I couldn't remember which way it was so I figured I would get corrected if I was wrong.
