In this video you'll see some of the World Grand Champions from the mid seventies through the mid ninties.

Certainly by the ninties the gait had become more exaggerated.

This one has some from the mid ninties to 2008.

Interesting watching the change from 1940 through modern day isn't it?

Is that the full name? I can't find anything by that name that's a walking horse.

Sorry I don't know anything abut him other than he was a TWH and his name was Domm - fell in love with this horse at my freinds place but he was only a boarder :(

Dom may not be his registered name. Mine gets called Katybug. The people I got her from called her Katie. I intended to change her name but Katybug stuck. She answers to it now so it's here to stay.

Thank you Gunslinger for posting these videos. Very interesting! The main difference I see is back in the 40's you could actually ride these horses outside a ring. I could see them going down the trail in elegance and style. Now the gait is so exaggerated they can only be ridden in a ring. How sad is that?

Those early horses were AWESOME!!! I don't know why we can't get back to that.

I keep thinking that if the TWH show community ever implodes, the breed should re-invent itself as the Rolls Royce of riding horses. If the good naturally gaited bloodlines still exist.

I know I would pee my pants for a really nice trail walking horse. I have a Fox Trotter now and she is awesome. To get something with a running walk would just be the pinnacle of trail horsedom for me.

I hate how the modern riders all ride hunched over and their horses move like they have hip displasia. Don't they know it looks really "wrong" to the rest of the world?

I got brave and emailed the woman I got her from last night. I was told that she just completely refuses to move if she doesn't like the bit set up. I think I can deal with that better than an explosion. I've got a lot of bits hanging around that have been stashed here and there over the years. This actually fits better with my observation made on my 2 minute ride down the woman's driveway. She didn't seem to respond to leg or seat and only direct reined. So I guess I'll survive the first ride.

Hip displasia...that's exactly what I was thinking watching the clips. Reminds me of the show bred German Shepherds. And yes the men look like some sort of Halloween Creeper riding all hunched up. A grim reaper cloak might be a better riding habit for them.

I find that much more appealing. It's also the way my mare moves all the time out in the pasture.

Now I've got to figure out how to speed one up instead of slow one down. Never had that problem before. Probably better suited to my old bones.

I've only had one gaited horse before, a standardbred who was a free legged pacer. We kind of found the running walk gear together. It became the preferred gait for both of us.

While I'm waiting for the ice to melt... How would you speed one up?

Hip displasia. Something I never tho't of in walkers. Not in walker country altho I was looking at a 4 yr old on utube, possibly to purchase. He was hard pushed into big lick. His stifles were wobbling in and out. Had I bo't him he'd have been let down but those stifles were the deal breaker. I didn't know if that occurred only with the big stride or whether it would be permanent. Any input? A friend bo't a 15 yr old ex show mare and her hocks were sore. She still wanted to go and had no idea how to wind down and relax on the trails.
