Jay is a Rocky Mountain breed gelding. Here is a little bit more about the breed. The Rocky Mountain Horse exhibits a natural ambling gait, called the single-foot, which replaces the trot seen in a majority of horse breeds. The extra footfalls provide additional smoothness to a rider because the horse always has at least one foot on the ground. This minimizes movement of the horse’s topline and removes the bounce of a two-beat gait, caused by a moment of suspension followed by the jolt of two feet hitting the ground as the horse shifts from one pair of legs to the other. Jay is owned by Collette Dalquist and is on a long-term lease to our program. The Chiropractor indicated he is a “young 19-year-old” which is a good thing to hear! He has been dubbed “black beauty” by some of his riders.
