    She isn't too bad compared to a lot of others I've had. The bridge troll is a bit of a problem because the bridge is right at my back gate and the river runs fast and noisy. It's a very tangible boundary marker for a horse that doesn't want to leave her buddies. She files birds, squirrels and deer very quickly into the harmless category. The bear causes a little more concern but not panic. Understandable.
    Haven't come across a moose blocking the trail yet but that's just a matter of time.
    We will get there.

    Ran across this video on youtube. I know this guy, this horse and this stable. Not 15 mins. From me. I was surprised.

    Rawhide's Big Wheel, is a nice looking horse, for the show ring. Personally, I don't care for this type on the trails. To me, they are not as smooth or agile as the lower front end mov'n racking horses. I happen to have one of these also. He'll make a great show horse, but, to me, not worth a plug nickel for the trials.

    Too bad the young man riding him hasn't taken some riding lessons. That turtle back doesn't adding anything.

    They have a number of show horses. He actually won the first show he ever entered couple yrs ago. I watched him ride the same horse he showed. It was a rough ride in comparison to others they have. I was told for the show ring, the judges like the rougher gaited horses.

    Whereas when they ride trails, its different horses. I saw much smoother horses that day I was down on their farm, then this one. But this one is the looker of the bunch. This young guy is still in high school.

    So I'm confused the Blue Roan Stallion in the second to last video is a Standardbred? Full Standardbred?? I mean I understand alot of horses went together a long time ago to make this breed but still one can't just slip through it's a gene that requires one parent to be a roan. I love blue roans but alot of people get confused so you have to be careful buying one. I don't know how many adds I've emailed people about only to get a picture of a grey horse. Hmmm I love Standardbreds, I see new options in my future.

    Most Standardbreds rack/singlefoot, my OTSTB is developing his rack (he is very inconsistent about picking it up but he is slowly learning)

    My trotter can trot a mile 1:56 when he was racing and got timed at 35mph, we had a pacer (who now singlefoots) on the pace 1:52 for a mile and at a rack was timed at 36 mph.

    I LOVE my Standardbreds and out West there are great STBs at various racetracks and farms, plus some great adoption people.

    Many Standardbreds are quite handsome, the breed is refining as they are getting faster at the track. My trotter gets mistaken for a warmblood or a heavier TB

    Its my understanding that a "singlefoot horse" or a "racking horse" (same thing) isnt a set pure breed of horse. Most of them have some standard bred in the mix. Perhaps heavy to the standardbred side. But still a cross

    No it is not a breed of horse but a gait and there is a registry SHBOA which is a performance registry as many different breed of horses rack/singlefoot. Yes, there does seem to be a great deal of Standardbred or Standard crosses who dominate the speed divisions of the gait. I love the gait for trails for when it is collected it is as smooth and ground covering as a running walk.
