Training and Developing Gait
Our focus is assessing and developing the natural ability of each individual horse. We assess physical limitations and gifts as well as personality traits to develop their authentic gait potential. Breeding for the optimal pleasure gaiting conformation and characteristics results in young horses with the temperament and ability to be exceptional pleasure and trail horses. Many months are spent in foundation gaits, developing speed in engagement over time through athletics and muscle development without the use of artificial enhancements or mechanical aids. We are determined to build the proper core posture through development of correct and authentic gaits.
*Although our emphasis at Moondance Walking Horse Farm is to preserve the Heritage Tennessee Walking Horse bloodlines, we occasionally have the opportunity to purchase and develop outside horses. We take our time using the same painstaking natural training methods before we eventually offer them for sale.
