What breed am I?
I have a large head. The reason for it is because of my nose bone seems to be very large. And i am a bit smaller then most horses about 14hh and i am gaited. I will post more pix tomorrow or sometime or please PM me if your really good with identifying gaited horse breeds. Also please post any info you might think.

Any chance Tank could be a gaited mix breed?

I can't help you on the breed, but his head looks so much like my BLM Mustang John! Right down to the expression! Actually, I can't recall seeing another horse with a head so similar to John.

This is the only photo I have of him on this computer. I doubt your horse is a Mustang though. I just had to reply because I was like "oh he looks just like John, lol!"

PS. He could be a smaller Tennessee Walker. They are usually bigger, but they are rather notorious (in my mind anyway) for having less-refined heads. Or he could be a Peruvian Paso or Paso Fino, which would be more in line with his height.

If you could get a video of his gaits, I'm sure the folks on here could identify him for you.

I have a video of me riding him bareback... not much because im not a confident rider and he needs his hooves worked on. ill try to post it!

I honestly dont think this will help but im not confident enough to ride him much faster bareback yet... but maybe you will notice something from the video. (other then the face that i probably am a terrible rider!)
i think this down here will take you to the video... let me know if not... add Stephen Huber (the one with tank as the profile pic) and i have vids on my profile. Thank you for helping me identify this!
