About Tennessee Walking Horses
A light horse breed founded in middle Tennessee, the Tennessee
Walking Horse is a composition of Narragansett and Canadian Pacer, Standardbred,
Thoroughbred, Morgan, and American Saddlebred stock. Originally bred as a utility
horse, this breed is an ideal mount for riders of all ages and levels of experience.
The breed easily adapts to English or Western gear, and its calm, docile temperament
combined with naturally smooth and easy gaits insure the popularity of the Tennessee
Walking Horse as the "world's greatest show, trail, and pleasure horse."
Owning a Tennessee Walking Horse is affordable, with a price
range for every person's pocketbook. Considering the breed's easy ride, the companionship,
its dependability, Tennessee Walking Horse owners find that the satisfaction they
receive far outweighs the price of ownership.
