Pugh also comments extensively on the importance of preserving breeding histories, the Mountain Horse four-beat gait, and the history and horsemanship practices that have shaped the various Mountain Horse lines. Pugh also concluded that as the Mountain and Rocky Mountain Horses spread internationally these important techniques, stories and bloodline histories must travel with them.
