While known as a smooth gaited, all around horse, the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse is loved by many as a trail companion. The Missouri Fox Trotting Horse Breed Association (MFTHBA) is excited to announce a partnership to further recognize the many miles Missouri Fox Trotters spend on the trail each year.

“We are excited to announce our partnership with Top Trail, America’s Trail Horse Mileage Program,” shared Dr. Joyce Graening, MFTHBA President.  The program officially launches June 1.

“MFTHBA members are avid trail riders.  Our members who are competitive in the show arena also spend time trail riding their fox trotters,” added Dr. Graening. “The Top Trail program compliments the MFTHBA’s Fox Trot America Program and adds another opportunity to showcase our breed on the trail.”
