What is FOSH Gaited Sport Horses?
A one of a kind program to recognize and honor the talents and abilities of all gaited horses. FOSH Gaited Sport Horses is about appreciating the talents and accomplishments of these equine athletes and promoting the gaited horse’s ability to participate in all equine sport disciplines.
The first section of the FOSH Gaited Sport Horse – FOSH Gaited Distance Program – will be in launched 2013. It will honor and reward gaited horses competing in veterinarian sanctioned Endurance, Limited Distance and Competitive Trail Rides.
The next section launched will be FOSH Gaited Dressage. The first comprehensive Manual for Gaited Dressage was published by FOSH in 2009. The FOSH Gaited Dressage program will honor and reward gaited horses competing in Dressage competition. Dressage Tests for gaited horses are available for both English and Western Disciplines.
Recognizing and embracing ongoing change in people and horses, FOSH recognizes and provides a place in the FOSH Gaited Sport Horse for the new sport of Gaited Equine Agility. Gaited horses compete with non gaited horses in this exciting new sport and the gaited horses will be recognized by FOSH.
In the future, FOSH intends to develop programs to recognize and honor gaited horses who compete in other equine sports such as Jumping, Cross Country, Three Phase Events, Gymkhana events, Obstacle Driving etc.
If you own a gaited horse, the door is open to your equine partner becoming a FOSH Gaited Sport Horse!
