Racking Horse Qualities

The Racking Horse is yet another famous American breed of beautiful animals. They can be used for shows or competitions, for harness work, or for riding. An Athletic creature, the Racking Horse can run for miles without any fatigue symptoms. They can also be great earners and do very well inside the competition circuit across the country. You can find these horses in the southern states of America, particularly in Alabama, mostly centralized inside the city of Montgomery. They are registered in the city limits of Decatur, Alabama.

Racking Horse Temperament

Tempers of any horse can have a tendency to run wild at times, but some breeds are somewhat calm and that is the case for this breed. The Racking Horse is a very sweet and kind animal, though they are also equally as sporty and energetic.

Racking Horse Appearance

The look of a Racking Horse is rather elegant and lean. They stand at a around fifteen hands when fully grown and can be bred in various colors. Considered to have an attractive looking face, sloping shoulders, and a tall frame, they also have a silky tail and short mane with loads of beauty. Clean joints and a very graceful appearance give the Racking Horse a look all of its own.

Racking Horse Upkeep

Tending to a Racking Horse is a simplistic task, all things considered. They can generally survive on very little maintenance and will care for themselves most of the time. This type of horse can survive in just about any climate atmosphere. These animals can even get along with other family pets for the most part as well. Having the ability to travel for long distances without any issues and no major health issues are two of the most prevalent reasons the Racking Horse is so popular.

Racking Horse History

The Racing Horse derives from the United States of America, primarily in the Southern parts of the country. These areas in America are well known for possessing ranches, as well as plantations. On such plantations, they are very valuable and used commonly as work horses. Additionally, these animals bode a gait that is highly sought after. They have been referred to as the single foot horse at times for their unusual gait that often appears as if they are trotting with one foot. An active breed that has a hopping notion to them and a staple for those plantation owners, they are cozy for the rider to be placed upon for hours at a time without any issues. Their ancestry is thought of as rooting back to the Tennessee Walking horse, yet another historical American breed. They do appear to physically look rather similar to the Tennessee style, but they have been recognized as their own particular horse breed in the late nineteen seventies. An Alabama business person created this horse and worked diligently to maintain them for years to come.
