    Pacing Horses

    Many gaited horses indeed, it seems the the majority of them will perform a pace or stepping pace as their preferred gait. While it s always our intent to encourage natural gait action, it is best to try to bring the strongly lateral horse as close to the center of the gait spectrum as possible, and this for its own long-term welfare. A horse that paces is moving one set of lateral, or same side, legs in perfect unison, creating an even 2-beat gait, with a moment of suspension between one set of feet picking up and the opposite set striking the ground. The motion of the pace is from…

    Urgent Action Needed to Protect America’s Wild horses

    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has, in its infinite wisdom, removed over 75,000 horses from the wild since 2001. While allowing over 4 MILLION cattle to remain grazing on public lands that were set aside for the preservation of the wild horses and burros. Many of these removed wild horses end up in long term holding facilities. At its best the adoption program could only adopt out between 5,000 to 8,000 wild horses into homes each year. (Actual adoption rates fall far short of these numbers, they are closer to 3-4,000, especially in times of economic hardship.) This means most of the horses removed eventually end up at the…

The man credited with bringing the first horses to what is now the United…
