Our days as Arabian breeders have finally come to a close but our venture
of breeding Missouri Foxtrotters is going strong. There are still many misconceptions about Gaited Horses being limited in
what they can do. Although we are first and foremost Trail Riders we also ride our Foxtrotter's in obstacle challenges and
even local gymkhanas! One of the prettiest Gaited breeds, Foxtrotter's are also just plain FUN! This breed has something for
everyone- they can jump, chase cows, learn tricks, drive...the list just goes on. Foxtrotters are truly an All American breed-
developed in the Ozarks by immigrants and settlers who needed a horse that were as versatile as they were. And apparently
comfort and "flash" were important too because they succeeded in developing a work horse who had looks and a gait you could
ride all day long! Although not a "new" breed the Foxtrotter has been a well kept secret until the last few decades. But now
the word is out and we are shouting it from the foot hills of the New York Catskill Mountains- Missouri Foxtrotter's are the
Breed for Everyone!
Some exciting news, We have added Cotton Eyed Joe Y, a Foxtrotter legend to our herd, but due to his advanced age will only
be standing our homozygous black/white Missouri Foxtrotter stallion, Mr. Renegade's Go Boy at public stud. However, there
just may be some Joe babies available Summer 2018!
Renegade is being registered with the Pinto and Spotted Saddle Horse Association so Mares of other breeds such as Tennessee
Walkers and Arabians can be bred to him for registered foals.
Looking forward to the 2017 Foal Crop due to start arriving in March. Most will be available
for sale at weaning so keep checking back for updates as they are born. If you are looking for true partners on the trail
or otherwise that will leave you energized rather than worn out, Missouri Foxtrotter's are the Go To Breed!
We welcome visitors Spring through Fall, we just ask that you please call ahead. Come and discover the Missouri
Foxtrotter- a truly American heritage breed, developed out of a need for a smooth, sure footed, good natured family
horse that was versatile enough to work the fields, take the kids to school and still take the family to church on Sunday
in fine style.....the Missouri Foxtrotter is a one of a kind breed...once you ride one you are hooked. They are truly an American
breed of distinction.
|True testament to our stallion's disposition!
