Gaited Morgan Horses

Gait Sources/Lines

Justin Morgan bred Figure the foundation stallion of the Morgan breed. Figure was later renamed for his breeder Justin Morgan. Figure had pacing blood through his dam and must have reproduced gait when bred to “Narragansett Pacers” of the time and area.

Current Gaited Morgan Horses and non gaited Morgans trace back to 19th Century as a mixture of Morgan, Saddlebred, Thoroughbred and Standardbred stock. These breed combinations produced today’s Gaited Morgan Horses.

The Morgan is not overall a gaited breed, but during the SynchroGait Gene A testing a random sample of UC Davis DNA registered Morgans showed 17% carried the Gait Gene A and proved gait is inherited from previous generations. There is conjecture as to the Gaited Morgan Horses source gait lines or which families might be the source. Each new SynchroGait Gene A DNA test by Morgan owners/breeders seems to indicate “Gait” can be found across the Morgan breeding lines.
