  • Description: Langstone Harvey and Tanner Deweese are two younger riders of the Rocky Mountain Horse. They both discuss how trail riding brings strong bonds to the community and helps fund the small towns of these horses. Harvey discusses the changes in the acceptance of horses into the breed standards and how that still needs work within some associations. She also discusses the fun that showing horses brings. Deweese talks about his time playing polo for the University of Louisville and how that has shown him the difference between Rocky Mountain and Thoroughbred horses. He also talks about how Rocky Mountain Horses seem to be becoming more athletic as breeding goes on and how that change has not happened with race horses.
