Any Ideas?

Any Ideas on what breed or breed mix this beautiful mare is? She is super sweet And kind of looky. She is a beautiful girl and is a very nice ride. She flares her legs out when she trots and is very unbalanced at the canter. I'll put more pictures

The horse has done so much for humans, and I feel like it is time we repay their loyalty and bravery by being as kind to them as possible. Humans and horses should have a harmonious relationship where bits and spurs don't color the picture.

She looks like a descendant of the Spotted Saddle Horse “Mr. Bojangles” that lost her gait.

bojangles spotted saddle horse. <——I tried this twice and the link won’t work:((

If you’re curious , google “Spotted Saddle Horse Mr. Bojangles”. The cat paw marks were a DNA trademark of his.

If her canter is rough, she may need a chiropractor to look at her. However, I’m concerned about her front legs and her hooves. She looks like her legs are crooked from the knees down in two pictures. I hope that is just poor picture taking because she is a stunner:):)

Wow, thank you! I was also thinking she could be some Paso Fino because of how she moves, flaring her front legs out. And the canter is not necessarily their best gait and some can't canter correctly. I'm asking this for a friend and she really wants to get her DNA tested. The previous owner got her from an auction so much isn't really known about her...

I was just going to say . . . 'part Paso Fino". the long mane, too, is typical.

Very pretty mare, and looks like a sweetie too

Could you post some video of how she moves at all three gaits, preferably loose in a round pen or something?

I was thinking possible Paso, or some pony breed. Her back looks straight, and low withers

My guess would be Paso as well.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

Agree there’s likely some Paso Fino in there. While that flowing mane is not unusual for an SSH, that massive curly forelock is.

Plus throwing her legs out is not an SSH trait.

I know more than one breeder of anything who keeps a couple breeds of breeding stock. McNatt Farms (Mr. Bojangles) has gotten to be one of them in the last 10-15 years.

It could be very possible a SSH got intentionally or unintentionally mated with a Paso Fino and this beautiful mare was the result.
