    Hush is amazing. Strapless is middle of the pack in terms of fabulous movers but her presence is great (yes I've seen her in person). I generally think that horses can't possibly move as well as ponies, and Blue Mist was definitly at the top of that bunch.

    That's what struck me about Hush-- he seems so light on his feet that it made me think that his name must come from the soundlessness of his footfalls.
    Well, it suits him better than Shawkemo, that's for sure.

    I think, if memory serves me well...........of all time, perhaps 20th Century. And his owner was a lovely rider.

    Grey Slipper is breathtaking, but he is a very tidy jumper as well.

    I think Winter Castle is lovely, although he does not show in the "big" divisions.

    Not surprising - hands down, the best trot I've seen in a long time!

He was the horse that I pointed out to all my students and said, "that's what a good mover is supposed to look like". Not that there aren't a lot of nice horses in my area, but he's really in a different league movement wise. Can you tell I'm a little in love with this horse?

    Here's my definition of great movement:

    No knee action with a serious toe point on the end of the reach. A really free shoulder with a huge reach. A rounded back, topline and neck with tons of push from behind, but not a lot of hock action. You're right, Sue, you know it when you see it.

    I just saw a small pony at Harrisburg that was such a good mover that he was actually distracting: Pink Floyd.

    I hadn't seen him in quite awhile when I saw him at WIHS and someone said it was the same horse! (incredible mover!!)



    I remember watching Hollywood hack at Cap Challenge a few years ago - WOW!!!!

    Wallstreet Week formally owned by Cismont Manor and currently owned and shown by Alisa Cline Berry is by far the best mover *I* have ever seen in person. He has NEVER lost a hack.

    IMO Tindle out moved them all.

    He not only had a long, low sweeping trot, his walk and gallop were equally as loose and long.

    Here in Colorado, where Q lives, you can spot his movement in an arena full of horses at a great distance - you know it is him. I met him the day he got off the truck from being imported. He was a good purchase for Cindy C.

    He showed as Shawkemo for years before the Lindners changed his name to Hush when they purchased him.
    I didn't throw it out there out of left field .

    Whoever said Longacre's Hats Off, I totally agree...

    DAMN! That pony could move! I tried him in a muddy ring, and he still had the most amazing trot I had ever seen. He jumps real good too. If only he wasn't crazy....

    In addition to many of the ones listed, Granted (lg. jr. htr.) is a great mover. He also has great presence in the ring.

    Yep, Granted does move great. He falls into a scott stewart horse category. Man does scott have an eye! He has(or has had) Dynamic, Music Street, True, Davis Cup, Farewell, Ovation, Perfectionist, his new pre green Thoughtful, man the list goes on and on. But Davis Cup and Farewell and Ovation are beautiful movers as well as beautiful expressions and i think that that is what really completes the package for an ideal mover.

    Probably Hollywood, ridden by Rick Fancher and Classic Importer, ridden by Danielle Torano are two of the best movers I can think of.

    Ashford Castle.

    I thought he was a lovely mover. Am I the only one?
