This is an interesting and fun topic. What do you with an eye think of these horses?


This is the grand daughter of Doc's Hickory and Daughter of DocaRoyal.


This is Reye's Partytime out of Painted Robin, Sonny D Bar stock
Both of these horses are well papered.


This is my grade racking mare.

I'm not good at judging conformation, but they sure a easy on the eyes! Beautiful horses. How much do you ride your gaited horse? And which do you you prefer?

I have gone completely "Gaited". I absolutely love this mare. Have no idea what blood runs through her but she is a wonderful ride with lots of endurance. She is sure footed and is "bounce-free". I wouldn't trade her for all the papered QH's in the world. The other two are now sold. In fact, all of our papered horses are gone and the only ones we have kept are "grade". Isn't that strange?!

It isn't strange at all! I have a papered paint mare...Hunter's Delight on this topic. I love her to death, but I'll take my little bay TWH grade gelding anyday! He is so smooth with lots of endurance. He is around 12 or so. I am trying to track down former owners to find out "the rest of the story" on him. He's such a good boy and has restored my confidence after a fall from my mare. He has the kindest eyes but a lot of go power and is completely managable. How big is your mare? Deuce might be 14-2 or 14-3 while Daisy is 15-0 of 15-1. I think he might have some Paso Fino in there somewhere. He doesn't have the size or long back of some of the TWH I have seen. He has a thick neck with a thick mane & tail and a lot of movement in his front legs. Enjoy your "glide ride"!

She is 14.1 or 14.2. I have ridden smaller. She seems the right size for me. She has alot of go and does have a little spook in her but so far nothing I can't handle. I am concerned that she gaits in a stiff frame. I have purchased the imus bit and she is much more relaxed in the neck. I have the saddle on order. Can't wait to get it. She is my baby doll.
