The Rocky Mountain Horse at R Squared Ranch
Focused on the preserving, promotion and breeding of this rare gaited horse
The Rocky Mountain Horse Breed Standard states: "a Horse having a medium height, a broad chest, an ambling four-beat gait, a gentle temperament and a solid body color.”
The oral history of the Rocky Mountain horse is said to be derived from Jennet or Spanish blood (circa 1400's) combined with other gaited mountain stock derived from Narragansett Pacers. This Landrace breed produced in Kentucky is different than most other gaited American breeds that exist in the USA today. Click here to read more about their origins
R2 is family owned and operated. We love our horses like we love our family.
R2 Ranch is plotted along beautiful Wisconsin farmland just about an hour northeast from the twin cities and surrounding metro/ MSP airport
