Talking Show Us Your Walkers!


(If there is a thread like this already, delete at will, mods.)

Pretty self explanatory. Post some pictures of your Walkers and Walker Crosses. Well us a little about them too -- when and why you choose the breed, what you use them for, stories, etc.

This is Scooter, aka Scootiful...registered as Copy's Smooth Scootin'. He is not mine but is my BO's extra horse. His gaits were all kinds of sloppy when I started riding him a year ago. Hes getting back to a regular smooth consistant gait now. He is a short-round. 14.2 and super chunky. He edges on the side of insulin resistant...thats how fat he is. He has the greatest personality. He is a total love bug who is the first to find you and the last to leave. Spooky as all get out but he comes back to you. Heres a few shots.

Awww..they are great! What did you do to pull Scooter together?
I got Patch on new years eve and just started trail riding within this last week! He is quite sloppy so I will be taking gaited lessons this winter...the TWH breed has quite a learning curve to ride them!
This is my hubby on him, by the way :)

This is my boy Rebel. He is a TWH, 4y, 15.1 I didn't pick him out, he picked me! I really had no interest in TWH at all, liked my trotters and still do. My friend bought the mare bred, I love her, she is such a kind horse and when Rebel was born he was a little spitfire! I spent a bunch of time trying to gentle him, maybe a little too much! He became my lap dog and was very sensitive and trainable. We are two peas in a pod, my forever horse. The whole gaited thing has been a real learning curve, be we found it and he just gets better and better but I have taken the time with him, no quick fixes or devices. Anyway, my little guy and a couple adventures from this last summer:

Adia is the newest member to our herd. She is a 9yo TWH mare that has become my palomino dream horse. I've owned and trained gaited horses for years (all breeds) and though they were all smooth in their gaits, none can compare to Adia's glide ride. She is a true head nodding, evenly timed 4 beating, overstriding glide ride! No pace, step-pace or trot at all. Good mind, awesome gaits, willing temperament, and pretty to boot. I'm in love with this girl. Isn't is grand to find the horse of your dreams?!?!?!

This is my Walker JR. He's the biggest in your pocket guy. A lot of fun just to be around.
the guy wanted to try my saddle out...
