Katie, I compete with a Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse! Redbud,
who I usually refer to as a Racking Horse, is reg. KMSH.

I just started competing last year, and have done 25, 30, and
2-day 50 mile Competitive Trail Rides with him. He scored very
well and placed 4-6 in the rides we rode in.

I also have a TWH that I am starting also. We did her first ride,
a 20 mile novice, last month. She placed 7th overall (21 horses).

In the novice ride, there were 8 gaited horses - 4 TWH, 2 Paso Finos,
a Rocky Mountain, and a Racking Horse. I think we will see more
and more competing......
