Tennessee Walking Horse

A willing personality and easy-to-ride gait make this breed an American favorite.

Not long after the birth of America, a special horse was created in the rural South. Carrying the blood of the Narragansett and Canadian Pacer, along with the genes of the Standardbred, Thoroughbred, Morgan and American Saddlebred, this new horse had the strength and endurance to carry a rider through miles of farmland, all while moving at a smooth gait easily sustainable for hours.

Originally called the Plantation Walking Horse, the breed later obtained the name of Tennessee Walking Horse after the state where it fi rst originated. By the 1800s, the breed’s popularity had grown among farm owners throughout the South, who had discovered its vast talents. It wasn’t long before this horse became renowned for its willingness to work and easy-to-ride gait.
