Information on Foxtrotters

The Missouri Fox Trotting Horse was developed in the rugged Ozarks hills during the 19th Century by settlers who needed easy riding, durable mounts that could travel long distances at a sure-footed, ground consuming gait.

Stamina, soundness, and gentle disposition were serious considerations in the breeding of Fox Trotting Horses by pioneer families in the Ozarks.

Missouri Fox Trotters make excellent mounts for children and beginning riders because of their quiet dispositions and willingness to please. Their smooth gaits eliminate the "bouncing" that inexperienced riders suffer when riding hard trotting breeds.
