Willowbank specialises in the Missouri Foxtrotter - the smoothest riding gaited horse in the world.

The Missouri Foxtrotter is known best for the comfort it affords its rider. Loved as a trail horse the majority of registered Missouri Foxtrotters are owned by people who use them for trail riding, competition, endurance, and pleasure riding. Acclaimed as a show horse, the Missouri Foxtrotter is also recognised for its beauty and style in the show ring. Used by hunters and forest rangers for its endurance and surefootedness in rugged terrain, by ranchers for its versatility and intelligence, and on hollywood movie sets for its gentle nature, the breed has quickly earned its reputation as a horse for all situations.

When fit, Foxtrotters will travel at 16 kms per hour and your bottom never leaves the saddle. They are the rolls royce for riding like sitting in an armchair all day.

If you cross with a Foxtrotter it will definitely smooth out your horse. 80% of our crosses will foxtrot. Foxtrotters do not trot. They walk with the front feet and trot with  the back. But instead of a high stepping trot it is a gliding step so the back foot lands just behind the front. No posting or jigging on your horse.

Foxtrotters are known for there great temperament. They are willing to please their owners and thrive on attention and affection. As four year old horses they are bomb proof and we have children riding them.
