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?

Ignore all the paint on her. These were the day after our halloween costume ride.

And this is her normal trot

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.

Yea that's what I was saying, I think maybe there was something gaited out there in her mom's herd, as to what kind of gaited horse? Im not sure because I don't know anything about gaited horses and how to tell the difference in how they move.

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...
