The FOR SALE page has again been updated as horses have SOLD!
Thank you to everyone who has recently inquired on our horses! We apologize that we can not accommodate everyone, and we appreciate your understanding... We are now booking visits into October... Be sure you reserve your time to visit before winter falls upon us (typically mid to end of November)! Although we do ride in the winter, travel can become dangerous, temperatures often drop below zero, and trail rides are often shorter due to the extreme temperatures.
The 2020 projected breeding line-up is in! Check it out under the 2020 LINEUP tab! Lineup will be updated as mares are vet checked and confirmed in foal. Should be finalized come Winter!
Water cups have been installed! We now have 3 up and running for 4 of our 6 pens :) This should make winter chores a lot more tolerable and give us much more time to enjoy our wonderful horses!
The Rocky Mountain Horse. A horse for all ages and occasions. Here to serve you in Northeastern Wisconsin! Shipping always negotiable
About the Rocky Mountain Horse: The Rocky Mountain Horse originated in the mountains of eastern Kentucky. The breed evolved from a foundation sire who was brought by a traveler in the 19th century trying to return to his home in Virginia. He traded the stallion for necessary equipment and funds to get home. Thus, resulting in the beginning of the rocky mountain horse we now know and love.
The Rocky Mountain Horse has general characteristics that set the breed apart from other breeds. They range from 14.2-16 hands in height, are any solid color with minimal white on the face and below the hock. They are typically short backed with wide chests and well-set necks. Their rear feet are properly angled to accommodate their gaited nature, and they present ''teacup'' chins and ''foxed'' ears.
In early years the Rocky Mountain Horse was used as a versatile farm animal. They performed tasks such as plowing fields, pulling wagons or buggies and under saddle use. The breed was given the motto "One Horse for all Occasions" and is also seen as the Labrador Retriever of the horse world due to their gentle nature and extreme versatility. Today the Rocky is used for endurance, trail, and show riding, jumping, gaming, pulling, plowing, working and sorting cattle, reining, and mounted shooting to name a few.
Lets get to the meat and potatoes of this wonderful breed. The Rocky Mountain Horse is a gaited breed exhibiting a NATURAL smooth, lateral 4-beat gait. This is a ground covering gait that is very comfortable for the rider without the use of any riding aids. We at Rocky Mountain Run pride ourselves in our horses ability to maintain smooth gait on a loose rein without using a bit. They are a friendly and willing breed that is also known for being easy keepers and being as durable as a mule in all conditions and terrains.
