The Tennessee Walking Horses are truly amazing, versatile,
intelligent, beautiful and extremely talented. They are even
tempered, sturdily conformed and comfortably gaited.
The bloodlines of the Walking Horse represent most of the
early breeds of America and Canada. Immigrants from North
Carolina, Virginia, New England, Kentucky, etc., brought to
Middle Tennessee; Morgans, Thoroughbreds, Narragansett and
Canadian Pacers, Standardbred, and Saddlebreds. Mixing these
bloodlines produced the unique qualities that have evolved
into the Tennessee Walking horse of today, an exciting show
horse and comfortable, reliable trail riding horse.
Robert E. Lee rode a Tennessee Walker named Traveler during
the Civil War. Large land owners and farmers liked using
these horses because they could spend all day long in the
saddle covering many miles of rough terrain. By the 1930ís,
people were using tractors in the fields and automobiles for
transportation. During this time Walkers made their way to
the silver screen. Tennessee Walkers were used in Westerns
and other films. In the 1940ís and 1950ís, the Lone Ranger
rode a Tennessee Walker by the name of Silver, and Roy
Rogers rode the Tennessee Walker, Allenís Gold Zephyr,
better known as Trigger, a popular horse that generated
increased interest in the breed.
Today, Tennessee walkers are shown in a variety of classes
and are used for trail and driving, as well as jumping.
Tennessee Walking Horses are also used in field trials -
competitions for birddogs, and in programs designed for
people with disabilities and other therapeutic programs, as
well as sport events.
