gaited horses



history

The breed of Single Footing Horses - often equated with the Speed ​​Racking Horses - has been around for more than 60 years, contrary to popular belief in Europe. One of the stallions that has had the biggest impact on today's breed is EZD Falcon Rowdy. A stallion, measuring just 1.44m, from the rare line of the "Kentucky Walker", a trolling cross largely of Morgan and Arab that quickly became extinct in the 1930's. They have a soft 4-beat gait with a speed of up to 24 km/h. Falcon Rowdy, who also unmistakably carried Standardbred blood, became famous because, according to legend, he could increase this gait in "single foot" to a maximum speed of an alleged 51 mph.
In fact, the single footers go up to 50 km/h at maximum speed. Falcon became known as one of the world's fastest horses in the world when a vet, fascinated by his gait mechanics, extensively visualized and documented them. Another founding father of the Single Footing Horses was Coral LaCe, a Largo Paso Fino (born 1964), who, however, hardly plays a role in today's breeding. The targeted breeding for the single foot arose from the enthusiasm for the tough, resilient, relaxed and fast rackers.

 

 

 

 



 

 

 

 

breed characteristics

The studbooks are still open today. The breed is defined by the gait. The high ranged speed of the gait was brought to perfection, crossing gaited breeds over generations such as American Standardbred, Tennessee Walker, Morgan, Spotted Saddle Horses etc. Today the horses carry mostly standardbred blood.
From a leisurely 4-beat gait, the horse should be able to accelerate with a balanced temperament to a race rack where only one hoof touches the ground at a time. The gait should not be broken into a canter, trot or pace. Depending on the breeding direction, the breed characteristics used and taste, the gait differs in terms of how strong it is genetically fixed, i.e. how much natural rack is present and whether the horse tends to pace or trot or, as they say in the USA, is "square". that is, shifted neither in one nor in the other direction. Trotters are particularly popular – much more than pacers.  Those horses that trott when running free and show rack as soon they are under the saddle are known as the best: They show the highest speed in rack without breaking the gait.

ABOUT THE SPEED RACKING HORSE

"Speed Racking has been my passion since about 12 years of age. Once you have ridden one, it is difficult to go back to a less exciting gait. The speed racking horse can go slowly and calmly just like a TWH or Paso Fino, but if the rider chooses to go faster, the speed is there to be summoned. It is like owning an 12 cylinder Ferrari or Mercedes vs a 4 cylinder Toyota or Volkswagen... Only, it can be an every day horse on the trail. It does not have to sit in the garage like a fancy sports car. Operational costs are the same as any other horse but it's more fun."
