Abstract On The Gait Of Equines 2013

Please respect the dedicated work of these breeders and do not reproduce the material without obtaining the original from the author.  We appreciate Victoria sharing their experience and documentation of results.  A very interesting study.  tigerhorses@aol.com

Brief Introduction followed by the abstract and study below

1)EQUINE GAIT INHERITANCE  by Victoria Varley Founder of the Tiger Horse Breed

During the development of a new breed of horse where middle gaits and Lp gene spotted coats were desired, the hypothesis that there is a gene for gait, was also tested and verified, but not mapped.The work was done by myself, and observed and verified by my husband T.Mark Varley and Dr. S.McCall our farm veterinarian for the past 15 years, with over 100 horses observed and blood typed. The on-going work was done over a period of 18 years beginning in 1992, by cross-breeding gaited horses to non-gaited horses. We are currently recording 3rd and 4th generation offspring, and have begun selecting from these where both parents gait, and/or demonstrate copies of the Lp gene. Several have inherited the desirable oriental angled eyes, and a refined Iberian profile with a slightly convex nasal bone, large well placed eyes, and triangular shaped heads. A total of 41 mares and 15 stallions (parent horses and offspring) are recorded here, consistently exhibiting verifiable evidence that there is a gene for Gait, and that Gait is gender related. The only exception involves a specific type of LP/LP (homozygous) horse, for which there is a separate study underway.)
