Ok, so, when I bought my 6 year old TN Walker gelding Spirit, I didn't know anything about Walking Horses. Every book I read said that they were generally calm. Then when I finally brought him to the barn, my trainer (Mrs. Jenny) said that no, all Walkers are hyper/entergetic . . . But my Walker was so unimaginably calm (it's not just me, everyone comments on how calm he is for a 6 year old). Then I rode another TN Walker that was completely insane!! I mean she was bonkers, wackadoodle, banana sandwich, her elevator didn't reach the top floor, whatever you wanna call it but she was CrAzY! Now I'm confused, are Walkers generally calm, or entergetic, or insane?
One of the reasons I'm asking this was because my friend's dad saw how calm Spirit was and wanted to by one for my friend's brother (with aspergers). But if Walkers are generally entergetic/insane, then I'm afraid the horse will be to much for him or he'll get hurt.
