What breed do you think he is?

I meant to post that in your other thread about him...
Azteca:-)

Another guy at my facility said he reminded him of the Mexican horses he has ridden on trips to Mexico. I guess it's possible. I got a lead on his previous owners, who supposedly had him since he was very young, so I'm excited to talk to them and find out more about him. He has the movement and natural collection that would allude to the Azteca/Andalusian type horse. I don't know that much about them though.

Reminds me more of a paso.

Tessa7707 05-06-2013 06:25 PM

Are all paso's naturally gaited? Or just some? Because he definitely doesn't show any signs of being gaited.

I only have worked with one gaited horse, a peruvian paso, she was naturally gaited, I couldn't stop her from gaiting if I tried. No one taught her to gait as she was brought to me to start as a three year old.

The peruvians ive ridden were naturally gaited.. very quick steps.. now the paso fino i used to do speed events on was also gaited but was not smooth at all.. also quick steps but choppier.. i forget the names of their gaits.. sorry, lol. :-P


Id like to see a video of this horse moving-- he looks more peruvian paso to me for some reason ?

Here's one, sorry the first couple minutes are just bending exercises and walking. The trotting starts at about 3:30.
And canter
He's not fond of his right lead, but who is?
I won't get mad at ya if you critique me. I'm aware of the great distance that lies between myself and perfection. ;)

Horse shows no signs of being gaited at all. I would've guessed a mustang, he moves like a stock horse to me.

Tessa7707 05-06-2013 07:01 PM

That's what my guess was too, waresbear.
