Gaited horses

Here's a video of a gaited mustang mare... couldn't find one of her under saddle, but I have no idea what sort of gait she does or does not have and you may not really be able to get a good look at it.


This trainer had only been working with that mare for three months and had her from wild mustang to working under saddle.

Trot is her gait, looks like. ;) Maybe Foxtrot, I'm bad at that one.

Nah, that's not a trot. Or at least... not a "pure" trot.

Looks like a foxtrot. Vivache...when questioning a gait, hit pause several times on a video. Makes it stand out pretty clearly. Sorry for the unsolicited advice. *giggle*

I never really learned the footfall sequence of a foxtrot. XD My coach won't associate with them. Says they confuse her and she always feels like they have no rear end! I have trouble with pace and stepping pace. I'd love to try one sometime.

Vivache, I recently rode a gaited horse for the first time and LOVED it! I really wouldn't mind getting a gaited horse for myself!

*Dreams are within reach, you just have to go that extra mile to catch them*

It's so worth it. ;) Get an older one or a good trainer, though. If you don't ride the mare I show *correctly* for a while, she forgets how to gait and dang near flies around the arena because she isn't sure what to do with her legs. :P

I am a big gaited horse lovah. My favorites. The fella in my picture is my BO's SSH. Hes also registered as a racking horse. Only downfall to that is the bugger doesn't canter. When hes on, he can gait with the best of them. When hes being a jerk he can pace you right out of the saddle.

I flipping hate that! I need to find my pics of Copy. The first gaited horse I had ever owned was an own son of Gll's Carbon Copy. Looked just like him. He was big lick before all the nastiness. Was sold to slaughter and ended up at my trainers farm as a total accident! He had the most *ahhhh-mazing* canter ever. Like rearing up with CLASS
