    Ahh hahh!! I was looking up Spotted Walkers when I ran across The Spotted Saddle Horse! She looks almost exactly like them!! And I read that not all have the fast past gait like the walker. So I'm really thinking that's what she is.

    My first thought was a Saddlebred from the pictures....

    Yeah I didn't really think about them because I thought they were all gaited like a walker. She walks, trots, and lopes but it's really smooth and rather slow.

    Her hair was cut by the previous owner because I guess she got into burrs and they were to lazy to pick them out so they just shaved it off! And I know paint isn't always a breed. Its not terribly important to me what her exact breeding is. I love her either way. I just find it fun to speculate.
    Thanks for your opinions too :)

    Ok, seems lots of people don't understand the diffrence. Glad that you do.
    Not all saddlebreds are gaited. I have one that is gaited and one that isnt.
    I only asked about the forelock, because lots of saddlebred people keep that shaved. I am having a hard time saying saddlebred though. Looks like it could be, but that neck isnt on right for a saddlebred. It comes out of the chest rather than the shoulder. Who knows, could be a paint for all I know. I've seen a lot of appendix type paints.
    Just have fun, that's all that really matters.

    High stepping racking is not the same as gaiting, gaited horses have a nice smooth shuffle step that is faster than a walk but not quite as fast as a trot and no bounce.

    Yeah I know but she doesn't have either

    Im lost....a rack is a 'gait'. It has nothing to do with 'high stepping'. My hunter asb is gaited but no high step. My high stepper doesnt gait at all, just a walk, trot and canter.

    I'm lost too! My horse walk trots and canters or lopes like a quarter horse or something similar. But she definitely doesn't high step at all. Also she doesn't seem to shuffle step faster than a walk. She's slow like a pleasure horse but extremely smooth. She hasn't had serious training she's just been started. I forgot to mention she's only like 2.5- 3 years old. Her movement is natural, unaltered by training
    Just throwing that out there :/

    I don't see paint/qh personally. Her head just doesn't seem right to me for those breeds. When I saw her head my first thought was something gaited. Gaited breeds also walk, trot, canter. And some mixes don't inherit the gait.
