Smooth-gaited and stocky, the Missouri Fox Trotter originated in - you guessed it! - Missouri. These horses perform what is known as the "Fox-Trotting" gait, a four-beat broken diagonal gait in which the front foot of the diagonal pair lands before the hind, creating a much less bumpy ride than the average walk or trot. Possessing great stamina and weight-carrying ability, these horses are perfect for trail riding. Find the Missouri Fox Trotter for you on Equine.com!
