RE: [RC] gaited horses - Mary Sutliff

I have Paso Fino's & love them.  I often ride with other gaited breeds and my observation is that the Rocky Mountain horses lack that "go" that I love in my Pasos. Personally I enjoy riding a hotter horse.  A friend has a Foxtrotter that seems to be a good compromise for those who want a more relaxed ride.

I loved my Paso Fino mare... she was soo smooth! What do you all think of the Rocky Mountain horses?
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

-- Theodore Roosevelt, Citizenship in a Republic, Address at the Sorbonne, April 23, 1910.
