Mountain Pleasure Horse

Breed Description:

The Mountain Pleasure Horse's distinctive, easy-riding gait allows the surefooted horse to cover alot of ground with minimum effort for both horse and rider. The gait is an evenly spaced, four beat lateral gait with moderate forward speed and extension, without exaggerated knee and hock action. The horse moves out with a gait in which one can count four distinct hoofbeats that produce a cadence of near equal rhythm. The gait is natural. It is bred into these horses through generations of proper breeding. No action devices, aids or harsh training methods are necessary or allowed by the Mountain Pleasure Horse Association.
