flies in the Mountains and his colts are just as fast. Cannot be topped

gait a horse can do athletically, work cows, run barrels, or travel in
the mountains without having to go out of the gait. You have to try them

THE BEGINNING OF THE BREED
The Montana Travler Horse Association was established in 1983 to
continue the breed established by Tom Eaton of Nye, Montana. The
back to the early '30's with a Hambletonian
cross mare bred to an American Saddlebred. Also included were; Morgan,
and Tennessee Walker sires and mares who
fit the criteria of a selective breeding program Tom established.
The characteristics were: a great depth, a saddle back (good top
line), conformation, disposition, good feet, running walk gait,
The final cross with a foundation mare and a Tennessee Walker stallion produced
the basis of the breed "The Montana Travler" - an outstanding stud colt.
Justin Morgan established a great breed from one outstanding stallion.
The Montana Travler is the result of not
only a great stallion, but selective breeding over a period of many
To continue the breed, a colt from one of the foundation Sires - in order to
be registered - must be presented under saddle
to three directors. The horse must be two years old, a direct decendant
of the "Travler",
and have the conformation, disposition, and
gaits consistent with the breed.
The "Montana Travler" gives you a colt that is easy to break, versatile
(we use them for cutting and moving cattle, pleasure rides, hunting and packing,
a sure footed mountain horse with endurance and a desire to please.
