What breed could she be?
 
Hi, I'm new here and was wondering if you guys could help me with a tricky question.

A friend of mine asked me to post an ad for his mare for sale. I have seen him working caddle with her, she has been roped off of at various brandings, is quite "cowy" and does a super job as a ranch horse and all but I/we never noticed someting very interesting until a couple of weeks ago: there's no doubt she is gaited!

Well, we thought she was a QH cross... but with what? We are totally puzzled! :?

I'm sorry for the quality of the video but that's all I've got for now... but you should be able to see her gaits...

mmm not sure, possibly a qh cross. But if she is gaited than she can't be a Standard bred- can she?

With the way she's moving, she might be a Foxtrotter. It looks like she's doing the foxtrot, I'm no expert though.

If she is, if you keep her head further down she'll gait better :D Do you think she could be all MFT? Or do you know if she's a cross for sure?

We just assumed she's a cross, we dont' have any infos on her background at all... she could be all MFT! who knows! :wink:

This was the first time she was riden "english" and in a snaffle, she's used to a shank bit and loose rein and for the first time "english" I didn't want to experiment too much... I also rode her for only 10 minutes in the round pen, just to film her gaits.
If the owner would keep her, I'd LOVE to train her, she also loves to jump! :D
