is simply a gorgeous Appaloosa with a gait. They are
sometimes known as the Gaited Appaloosa. They are valued
for their pace known as the "Indian Shuffle"
or "Appaloosa Shuffle", which gives the riders
and cargo a smooth, gliding ride. In appearance, the
gait makes the Walkaloosa seem as though it is simply
rolling its shoulders and hindquarters in circles to
create a forward motion. The Walkaloosa has a goo-natured
attitude and are willing to do almost anything asked
of them. They are gentle and patient, and make a great
beginners' horse. The Walkaloosa's build ranges from
very refined to stout. They have a broad head with wide-set
eyes. The skin coloring around their eyes and lips is
mottled. Its muzzle is clean and not Roman shaped or
coarse. Its legs are long and straight with flat bones.
The hard hooves are striped. Its back is short, but
strong. The Walkaloosas comes in a variety of striking
patterns. Most common is the Leopard, Roan, Snowflake
or Blanketed patterns. They have very strong shoulders
with a well-muscled, moderately wide chest. Their withers
are well defined but are not too prominent. The only
trait defining a Walkaloosa from a typical Appaloosa
is its gait.
