Rocky Mountain Horse

Item #1441

Item Description:

The Rocky Mountain Horse is an American breed that traces its roots back to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Kentucky in the late 1800s. These gaited, sure-footed horses were not only the main mode of transportation for locals at that time, but also were needed to work farms and help manage livestock. The incredible stamina of these horses helped them work long hours each day. The people of this area were not wealthy, so the Rocky Mountain Horses were fed whatever was available, with some horses resorting to eating tree bark for sustenance. Winters could also be very rough, and as a result, the weaker animals died, leaving only the strongest to reproduce. This resulted in an incredibly tough and hardy breed.

The Rocky Mountain Horse today is a favorite with trail and endurance enthusiasts, as well as with riders in the show ring. Their unique four beat gait, which can be either a single foot or a rack, makes them a pleasure to ride, as the rider will feel very little sway which makes long hours in the saddle very comfortable! This gait is present in the breed at birth, and does not need to be taught or enhanced with devices.

Their bodies are always a solid color, with minimal white on the face and below the knee, and the breed’s characteristic coloration is a deep chocolate body with a flaxen mane and tail.

Founded to preserve and promote this wonderful breed, the Rocky Mountain Horse Association was the first breed-specific mountain horse registry, and is still going strong, having celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2011!
