    My Molly - curious about gaits

    Here is "Molly" she is 3/4 Morgan, 1/4 Percheron

    We have always wondered about her gaits. We did a video back when she was a yearling as she seemed to move very "flat" with a slightly different type of trot. Maybe its our imagination!

    Would be interested in seeing what others think

    Here is the video link
    Also added a couple of picture. One is when we brought her home from the auction (3 months old!)

    The other is from this fall, she is 2-1/2 in the picture, its not a great photo but it give you a idea of what she looks like now

    She is very pretty! I love the morgan breed. Right now her trot does not seem different to me at all. From that video I don't think she is going to be a super fancy mover (as in a lot of knee action), but I could be wrong. At that age my gelding moved super fancy, but then as a 3 yr old and now 4yr old he is no where near what he moved like back then. What are you wanting to do with her?

    Not planning anything special at this time, just riding western on trails, Maybe some day (after the kids grow up) get back into some low level Dressage

    She does have a fairly flat trot, but it's definitely a trot. She's cute.

    She's pretty! I just see a boring ol' trot up there, but it looks good when such a pretty horse does it!

    There's no way I could you what type of a gait that is.

    But I'd like to say that you are very lucky to have found a horse like that at an auction. =) She's gorgeous, and I love her mane and tail coloring.

    What a gorgeous girl, she looks pretty smooth in that trot, I like flat ride, easier to sit through. Good luck with her

    I fell in love with her the minute I saw her in the back with her mom. I almost missed getting her as they were run through the ring before I got back to the auction area. I bought her off the horse dealer (that had just purchased them in the ring) as he was loading them on the trailer to leave!
