Missouri Fox Trotting

From Horse

These horses were depended upon for their surefootedness in this mountainous region and their ability to do whatever was needed around the homestead, such as plowing, hauling logs, and working cattle, while at the same time able to double as a stylish buggy horse or riding horse for the family.

Today the breed is in demand as a pleasure horse, show horse and for cross-country trail riding. It is often described as the common man's pleasure horse because of its gentle disposition.
