[quote=chika1235;342810]tn walkers get such a bad rap!!!i live in eatern tn where there is nothing but tn walkers!!!they are the best trail horses and are very showy.i know about all the bad stuff that people are doing to them but none of the people that I see show their tn walkerws that way!they are all friendly poeple.quote]
I live in Ohio and I'm not in the show world at all but I have seen some tn walkers and none of them had pads either. The walkers I've seen and had the opportunity to ride were great and their owners didn't use anything but normal shoes on them. They are a beautiful breed with great personalities! Before I found my spotted saddle horse, a walker was what I was actually looking for - but I found my guy who stole my heart!
