Frequently Asked Questions

“I have always felt that there is no limit to what our Fox Trotters can accomplish. They are truly an exceptional horse with athletic qualities that surpass any other gaited breed. My husband and I have had the honor to compete in MFTHBA performance and versatility divisions, and then go outside the breed box by entering and successfully competing alongside non gaited horses. We have shown off our Fox Trotters successfully at Reined Cow Horse events, Ranch Sorting, Hunter Jumper, Extreme Cowboy Events, Carriage Driving, America’s Favorite Trail Horse, Classical and USEF Western Dressage competitions.
Foxtrot Urbane has embraced the greatness of the Missouri Fox Trotter! This organization will provide our horses with resumes in the form of educational transcripts, that document the diverse accomplishments that our horses have been able to achieve. The Foxtrot Urbane transcripts will add value to our horses by documenting their training experience through the competitions and events that they take part in. Foxtrot Urbane will continue to challenge us all to seek out new events to showcase our exceptional breed and in this process, promote the Missouri Fox Trotter to people who never knew that gaited horses could do – what the Fox Trotter can.”
