About Single-Footing HorsesAbout Single-Footing Horses



Single footing horses come in many varieties, sizes, colorsrnand coat patterns. They must be of good temperament, willing, have endurance,rneasy to train, have good gait, and be smooth at all speeds of gait. They are arnlight breed with a solid conformation. They must be able to perform an evenrn4-beat gait. Some are able to reach speeds of up to 20 mph. At the fastestrnspeeds these horses will be traveling with one foot on the ground at a time,rnthus the name "single-footing." The horse will not have a head nod orrnbob. The Single Footers generally travel with head up, "star gazing."rnThey also tend to round their backs instead of arch them. "Many mayrnstretch out, lowering their heads at the racing single-foot. The horse may havernother gaits, as well."

rnrnThe North American Single Foot Breed is versatile. There arern5 divisions with special categories and over 50 categories in which horses canrnearn rewards. They are not into the show horse but rather into the workingrnhorse.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnUnlike most Horse Breed Associations, the North AmericanrnSingle Foot Association judges the horse's qualities by trail riders, owners,rnworking ranchers and breeders. Pleasure trail, competition trail, and workingrntrail are abilities that are desired in the breed along with the specificrnqualities mentioned above.rnrn 

rnrnIt is the creed of the Association to be natural with theirrnhorses and ask the horse to perform in that way. No severe or artificialrnequipment is permitted. The horse must perform with the best of its naturalrnability.
