About The Breed:

542A6666-Edit.jpg

The 19th century was a time of westward expansion in America. Early settlers and pioneers needed a horse that could handle the rugged new life in the Ozarks. Stylish enough to pull a buggy and reliable enough to be the family riding horse. Tough enough to plow the fields and agile enough to work cattle. A horse that would become a favorite for country doctors, sheriffs, assessors and cattlemen, because of a special ability to cover long distances with a surefooted and smooth gait. That horse was the Missouri Fox Trotter.

They have three standard gaits. The Flatfoot walk, Foxtrot and canter. The breed motto is, “To Ride One is to Own One.”
