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
