2 tennessee walking horses NEED HOME ASAP!!!
So cute. I just love the long nose of the walkers! Around here if TWH's were that cheap they would definitely not be healthy or for the intermediate or beginner rider no matter what the ad said.

Funny how you KY/OH/TN isn't that far away and yet the price difference is amazing. Where my aunt lives in Texas, the gaited horses are even more expensive. Funny how the horse markets are so different and vary region to region.

Gaited horses are really expensive in Arizona too. I got my Fox Trotter for $500 and feel like I stole her! She's not perfect by any means, and she was already 15 years old when I got her, but I am enjoying the heck out of her.

They normally go for around $2500 and up in Arizona. It's QH country.

Gosh, I'd take $2500! When I buy, I want it to be from someplace that is reputable and a barn that deals only in gaited horses. So far I'm really liking everything I've read about Walking After Midnight farm in VA, BUT their horses are going from $5k-9k!

I know a lot of times you get what you pay for, but geez.

I ride TWH also. Great breed! My grandchildren ride their bikes and play all around both my young horses. They just stand there and watch.

When you are ready to shop for a horse go the different local breeders and ask all those ?'s you have. Get to know them and visit several if you can. Best way to get to know them is be be around them as much as you can before you decide on which breed you would prefere. Many breeders are very open to visitors.

As with any breed you will find some hot and some cold ones.

My experience with them is on the trail. I find that sitting back in the seat, feet forward a bit and relaxing my girl takes right off. I think you need to let your bottom move with them more than a non-gaited. :) Their backs and shoulders need to move and when you are free to move with them it is easier for them.

Well, I think $2500 is more like the least you can normally find one. I see them advertised $5k-9k here also. That is too rich for my blood. If that is what is costs to get a reputable one, I will have to keep combing the gutters, lol!

Really, I DO think some good horses fall through the cracks. But never when you are looking for them you know! My neighbor got a 7 yr old Fox Trotter mare for $800. I was- and still am, a bit jealous. I really would have liked to have gotten a younger horse. But hey, God sent me the one I got and I love her to pieces. I'm sure there is a reason things worked out the way they did. And I keep telling my neighbor I want first dibs if she ever sells hers.

If you decide to buy one close to me, I would be happy to look for you. I love to horse shop and don't need anymore for myself...LOL

Here is another one...no picture though...

This is the nicest one for sale right now, in my humble opinion.

Registered Black Walking Horse Mare- Ride or Breed

What a sweet looking mare (the second one of course). I can't believe the price!! Down here you could add a zero to the end of that and you'd get it. She looks to have a nice temperament, however due to her being an ex-show horse, I'd probably take a good look at her pasturns and see what kind of shoeing she's got.

How really nice of you to offer to go and see horses in your area

I am fascinated by the gaited breeds and would love to have one some day. :) (have Saddlebred crosses but they're only 3 gaited).Something I'm curious about,and maybe this is a dumb question,but if you breed a gaited horse to a non gaited horse,is the off spring likely to be gaited or not? Does it depend on what gaited breed you use?

I've experimented with crossing Icelandic's to different breeds Appendix, Arab, Gaited Morgan, Paint, I have never been able to reproduce the Icelandic gaits, I have been able to create a very high stepping animated gait that is very smooth, and the Morgan gait, but not the tolt. I have crossed Icelandic stallions to other breeds and the other way around with no success, all foal have turned out great stocky, calm, versatile horses.
