About the TWH
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.
