My favorite trail horse has got to be Dobe (or any mustang). He is very calm and levelheaded and no horse is more sure footed. His gaits are smooth and comfortable and while he is in perfect control, he has enough energy in his step to actually cover some ground. He is also incredibly comfortable to ride bareback because his back is wide and flat. Like sitting on a moving couch. :)

Although just judging by the way that he travels, I think he might have some gaited somewhere in his ancestry.




Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

My haflinger, Toby, before he got the EPM. He's rideable now, but I don't push him like I used too.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

My horse is a Percharon arabian cross and he is great on trails. He is big, smooth and level headed like a Perch, yet has good endurence and can be a little exitable like an Arab.

I really need to upload some new pictures of him.

my boy chucky is perfect for me. But he has been lame for about 7 months and I still can't ride him :'( hopefully within the next few months I can!

He is not an easy horse to ride! I find him really easy but every one else who has been on him finds him really hard to control!!!! I've never had a big problem with him though. He is very quick on his feet (which I like ), he is hard to stop (which doesnt really bother me), he is really really comfortable, really smooth gaits, both he and I LOVE to go for a good long hard gallop, doesnt bolt (spooks but doesnt bolt), doesnt kick buck rear or any of that stuff, solid and sterdy, he was fit and could go for miles, if he is freaking out or something all I have to do is give him a bit of a wack and a growl and he pulls himself together, he is just soo much fun, all we ever did was muck around and go on trails, we are just made ofr each other (what he likes doing, I like doing. And what I don't like doing, he doesnt like doing lol), he is just perfect for me and I miss riding him sooo much!!!! I love him!!!!

Lol that was a bit long hehe.

Here are a couple of pics of him! He is such a character and he is full of personality!!!

If I had to choose one other than my horse i'd want a Thoroughbred/Percheron. But my Dutch Warmblood is an AMAZING trail horse! Super quiet and doesn't spook at a thing. Plus, we can jump any logs along the way. :P
