Once you go gaited you never go back, especially with a Kentucky or rocky mountain!! ( I guess it could apply to all gaited breeds though)

I have two of my own MFT's and my parents breed them. I LOVE them to death, they're very sweet, calm, smart and easy to handle, they're usually very willing to learn and please; Their gaits are very smooth and are easy to ride.

I did some research and as far as I know and saw, they're not over there yet. I think you may have to import if you really wanted one :( If you did decide to import, it's defintly worth it!!

I've never ridden a gaited horse, but I would in a heartbeat if I was given the oppurtunity. Morgans can be gaited, and I'd reccomend a Morgan for anyone no matter what discipline. (I know Morgans who excel in disciplines all across the board) I really don't know much about gaited horses, even Morgans.. But here is the Morgan Singlefooting Association..

Maybe you'll find something you like. Morgans do exist in Australia, but I don't know how many gaited horses exist. You can try browsing the Australian Morgan Horse Association website, and when I have more time (and if your interested in Morgans) I could try to research it some more for you. =]

I, too, have been looking for a couple of gaited horses. Actually, unless you are looking for top rated show experienced horses, the Paso Fino often sell for 1200 to 3000 dollars for registered stock. That is in the middle age group. You can pay a great deal more ... but you don't have to.

I also have Rocky/Kentucky Mountain horses. I love them to pieces, but have ridden my share of gaited horses in general. I do agree that once you go gaited you won't go back! I was spoiled at a early age!

I do believe that Rocky Mountain/Kentucky Mountain horses are on the way or may already be in Austrailia. When I was advertising my mare (but changed my mind- thank goodness!) I was contacted by a breeder that was working for a client that was looking to bring the mountain horses to Austrailia. I am almost positive it was Austrailia. I could look up some old emails to be sure- if I still have them and find out. One way to find out might be to contact the associations- send them an email.
Good luck to you in your gaited horse search!
