THE REAL APPALOOSA
In the movie "Forest Gump" he says "Life is like a box of chocolates you never know what you are going to get." The Appaloosa is "like a box of chocolates" you never know what color or pattern you are going to get, BUT breeders and owners of Real Appaloosas all agree that their Appaloosas are hardy, long-lived, sound, and easy keepers. Further, they are extremely intelligent, athletic, have gentle temperaments, and it does not matter what level of rider you are there is AN APP FOR THAT!
The Real Appaloosa's balanced conformation enables them to be extremely versatile. Want an English Pleasure horse, get a Real Appaloosa. Want a Western Pleasure horse, get a Real Appaloosa. Want both get a Real Appaloosa. Want to ride Endurance, drive, and jump get a Real Appaloosa. The Real Appaloosa can be used in many different ways, yes ONE horse, and they remain sound, provide a smooth ride and will be your companion. Many of the Real Appaloosas have a gait called the Indian Shuffle, this gait is easy to ride and many people look for horses with this gait for that reason.
The breeders you will find on this site have made it their goal to preserve not only the bloodlines of the original Appaloosa, BUT the traits of the original Appaloosa. They participate in group ads, participate in parades and demonstrations and some show, ride endurance, reining, cutting, etc.
