I'm with you breezypoo I love em
We have 4 and they are all sweeties. I read some of the posts from folks who are having problems with their horse and feel so fortunate to have our girls. Its not that they are perfect, but the difficultys we have with them are so minimal its nothing a beginner rider couldn't handle.
We owned other breeds of horses and the Rocky/Kentucky are by far the easiest to train and ride in general.
There are those occasional stinkers out there I'm sure. I think some breeders are forgetting to breed for temperament and are going for more gait and color. Its a mistake in my eyes since the temperament of these horses is more important than color or gait.
Yes their gaited but they can trot lope and gallop just like any other horse. If you don't believe it I should post a video of my husband galloping up the driveway on Fras
She goes from a stop to a gallop as good as any quarter horse.
