Gaited Mustangs.

so i've recently been studying up about Gaited horses, because when my mustang mare was sold to me she was said to rack. but i didn't know what to look for. looking back through our old videos and such i found a video of her gaiting in the beginning, she only gaits in the beginning of the video. as well as some pictures! anyone else have a gaited mustang?

How certain are you that she's a mustang? She moves and looks alot like my missouri fox trotter.

well as a mustang she could have a bit of anything. but her mom was wild caught as a pregnant mare, and had my girl shortly after in captivity, which is why she doesnt have the brand.

Mustangs are not really a breed. They are mutts with a little of anything in them. Some make good horses but thier lineage may be anything.

Agreed, Missouri Fox Trotter to me.

The overwhelming odds would be the gaited trait came from Spanish influence, just as it does in Appys that shuffle...
