RHBAA Speed Racking

The Speed Racking Association is an association that hopes to promote the speed racking horse and the Racking Horse Breeders of America, our association was formed in part to help give the speed racking horse a guideline in their performance.

The speed racking horse is an all-around perfect horse in the hands of a skilled racking horse trainer. Good breeding combined with responsible training produces a versatile horse with speed and the smoothness of the racking or single-foot horse.

The Speed Racking Horse in many cases can be a cross between a home grown non-registered horse and a Racking or Walking horse. This is a difficult mix to create because the breeder must be careful not to breed a colt with too much pace or the horse will cross over to a pace rather than maintain the smooth four beat rack that maintains a smooth movement at all speeds

The Speed Rack

The Speed Rack is an even 4 beat gait where the foot falls are left hind, left fore, right hind, right fore, which softens the lateral movement. A good speed racking horse is able to gait at 25 to 28 MPH and smooth enough for the rider to maintain an easy seat in the saddle.

We hope to increase the participation and educate the exhibitors and fans of what is expected of a speed racking horse.
We are a horse that is judged on speed, style and confirmation while exhibiting the gait of the rack, at no time should the horse lose its form and confirmation while performing the speed rack, it must still perform the three gaits of a racking horse, what are show walk, slow rack and fast rack in the most stylish manner possible.

It is the hope of this association along with the Racking Horse Breeders Association that this division grows and helps entertain the fans in the stands.

The RHBAA operates in conjunction with a Horse Industry Organization (HIO) to inspect horses before shows and sales.
The two largest shows for the Racking Horse are the Spring Celebration, held annually in April, and the World Celebration, held in late September. Both are held at the Celebration Arena in Priceville, Alabama.
