I looked up Kentucky, gaited horses, on Craigslist. Those low prices almost make it worth flying out there.

Unfortunately, it's still a seller's market here. I'm looking at at least two horses this weekend. I'm not picky about breeds (except I won't look at Peruvian Pasos for obvious reasons), just anything that fits my requirements/needs.

What about Walkers West or have you looked at their horses already?

I only think they are reputable because I have never heard anything at all about them, one way or the other.

Walkers West - Tennessee Walking Horse breeders and brokers, world-wide.

I visit their website all the time because they have the most detailed/accurate compilation of Walking Horse History, maybe with the exception of what Mr. Bob Womack produced. Plus I love the music

Thanks for the link. :) I looked through what they had, including shipping it's pretty much what I'm paying out here. I have relatives in Texas, so if I find one maybe I could do a double visit. I'll see how it goes with the two horses this weekend.

And HagonNag, don't get frustrated! I look at this as an opportunity to ride different horses. I wasn't planning on horse hunting ever again, but things happen.

Ky Walker Auction

I live in Northern Ky and would love to get any info anyone has reguarding TWH auctions in Ky. I will be in the market for two in the beginning of 2014. I do not know how to help train a gaited horse to improve his gait though so do you think for a smooth walker iI would need to buy from a breeder.

I don't know what ethical breeder/trainers are up your way but, if you're looking for a TWH strictly for pleasure, you might contact either Billy or Danny Taylor in Winchester, TN.

That's a long hike for you; they are probably 30 minutes east of me and I am ~65 miles SE of Nashville but well worth the time and trouble, if you want to stick with buying from a breeder.

They each have their own farm but work together.

And if you're coming that far, you might as well make a long weekend out of it and go to the fish aquarium in Chattanooga

It's probably the best America has to offer

My only suggestion is to be careful of what you are buying. I love TWH's but my experience in TN so far has been, theyre broke to ride ridiculously young, and they only know how to go with the aide of spurs and/or whips. Never mind brakes, its brace and haul. :( I've seen beautiful horses, but I am personally convinced to buy them before theyre broke to ride. Show barns are crazy around here.

Good luck on your search. I hope to start mine by next year as well. :)
