Wow, neat video. Thanks for posting that! They are so unusual and fascinating to me, I've never seen one in person. Can't wait to see pics of your foal!!!

They are a really cool bred, I used to love the big tall horses until I got Toppa, she has all the power and speed of the bigger breeds but soooo much easier to mount.

Haha, I am definitely a fan of short horses as well! They look like a blast to ride and man, some of their gaits look very quick! Are their gaits smooth or can they be choppy?

Most of the gaits are very smooth but it depends on the horse some gait better than others, Toppa is very smooth not as high stepping because I don't use weights on her. My neighbor has OTTB's and Toppa can keep up with them, she'll make your eyes water when you open her up.

I bet that is an exciting experience, lol. I like to ride other breeds of horses just to see if I like them. Its amazing the differences between the breeds of horses!!!

It is fun to ride them, my stallions have much more power but they aren't as smooth. They are great for people with bad backs.

Dang, if I was anywhere in the vicinity where you live, I'd be tempted to come check them out, lol. I rode a TWH once and didn't really like him, but they are probably as different as you can get to an islantic.

They are different from the gaited horses here, they are considered the Mercedes of the gaited breeds. They're not like being in a rocking chair, they are much smoother.
