About Missouri Fox Trotter HorsesAbout Missouri Fox Trotter Horses



Missouri Fox-Trotter comes from Missouri, US (which yourncould have guessed by the name). They have received their unique name from therndance they did when they were developed in the Missouri Ozarks. They have a floidrnfour beat gait. This makes for a very graceful ride. They are well known forrnbeing easy to manipulate through mountainous terrains. Many years ago, it wasrnthought that the pioneers utilized these horses to get from the MississippirnRiver to Tennessee, then also to Virginia. They were first called an Ozark HillrnHorse and were used frequently for many farmers. They were finally registeredrnin Ava, Missouri sometime during the middle of the nineteenth century.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnThey are used for shows and competitions, as well as a formrnof Western riding. They are noted to be agile and surefooted. They can be foundrnin Kansas, Arkansas, Illinois, Oklahoma, and Missouri. They closed the breed’srnregistry in the early nineteen eighties, but this animal is popular and hasrnbeen famously so for several decades in the southeastern part of the UnitedrnStates.rnrn 

The temperament of the Missouri Fox-Trotter is that ofrnwillingness and kindness. This style of horse is very gentle and docile, butrnremains strong and powerful when needed. Not all horses can be utilized inrnshows as their personalities simply do not allow for it, but MissourirnFox-Trotters can easily handle being trained and are eager to perform for theirrnowners.rnrn 

The Missouri Fox-Trotter is a beautiful breed of horses. Theyrnstand at around fifteen hands in full grown adult size and are bred in justrnabout color coating. They have a fine head, sloping shoulders, and lots ofrnmuscles. They bode a long, shiny mane and well sprung ribs. They have strongrnfeet that are excellent for walking for miles and miles.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnTaking good care of your Missouri Fox-Trotter can be arncinch. They enjoy residing in a warmer climate, but do not require it asrnthey're rather resilient. The Trotter can easily live in the mountains in arncolder climate, but will do better overall in a mild and warmer one. They arerneasy to train and can do well on farms working with families and children.rnTheir background of Arab blood has helped to mold them into a very calm andrnsweet creature.
