About Choctaw HorsesAbout Choctaw Horses



Choctaw horses are the direct descendants of horses thatrntraveled with the Choctaw Indians on the "Trail of Tears" in thern1830s from the southeast U.S. to the reservations in Oklahoma.

rnrnThe Trail of Tears was a series of forced removals of NativernAmerican nations from their ancestral homelands in the Southeastern US to anrnarea west of the Mississippi River that had been designated as IndianrnTerritory. The forced relocations were carried out by various governmentrnauthorities following the passage of the Indian Removal Act in 1830. Thernrelocated people suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while enrnroute, and more than four thousand died before reaching their variousrndestinations. The removal included members of the Cherokee, Muscogee, Seminole,rnChickasaw, and Choctaw nations. rnrn 

Choctaw horses are quiet and have a great people-orientedrndisposition. They are not tall horses (most are 14 to 14.2 hands), but they arernbuilt to carry weight and can easily carry a 200 plus pound man over 50 and 100rnmile races. They have very sound legs and hooves and most are never shod.rnChoctaw horses come in every color and pattern and most commonly have long, fullrnmanes and tails.rnrn 

rnrnIn addition to their wonderful disposition they are veryrnathletic and excel in endurance events. Many Choctaw horses are gaited, howeverrneven the trotters are very smooth riding. Choctaw horses make excellent trailrnhorses and they also do well participating in other activities from dressage tornreining to jumping and western games. They have striking looks which make themrna natural choice for parade, trick, and exhibition horses while their calm andrnengaging dispositions make them great family pets.rnrn 

rnrnToday they are very rare with only about 200 horses of purernChoctaw breeding in existence.
