 The Description Of The Breed

The Speed Racking Horse is a horse breed which has been around for many years, but is just becoming popular among equestrians. The speed racking horse is an all around perfect horse in the hands of a skilled racking horse trainer. Good breeding combined with responsible training produces a versatile horse with speed and the smoothness of the racking or single-foot horse. A well bred speed racking horse should have a good level mind and be willing to walk, slow gait and fast gait when asked.

The Speed Rack is an even 4 beat gait where the foot falls are left hind, left fore, right hind, right fore which softens the lateral movement. A good speed racking horse is able to gait at 25 to 28 MPH and smooth enough for the rider to maintain a easy seat in the saddle. The Speed Racking Horse in many cases can be a cross between a home grown non-registered horse and a Racking or Walking horse. This is a difficult mix to breed because the breeder must be careful not to get a colt with too much pace or the horse will cross over to a pace rather than maintain the smooth four beat rack that causes a smooth movement at all speeds. While size can vary, a sturdy build with refined confirmation is desirable. A well bred Speed Racking Horse is a distinct breed and unusually docile with a very large back end, a naturally high stepping front end, exceptional stamina and the innate ability to metabolize oxygen better than all other gaited breeds. So if you own a speed racking horse or just enjoy watching them burn up the ring on a Saturday night you are not part of a minority, but definitely a majority. What we all share is the need for speed.
