That's pretty amazing! Tennesee Walking Horses are probably soo nice on your back.

She swear by them I believe her. There is a guy local to me who breeds spotted drafts to Tennesse Walkers. He gets gaited half drafts. Pretty neat.

Here is a link you should enjoy reading:

I'm sure the lovely lady in question wouldn't mind getting in touch with you to share her experience with these guys. Just pm me :)
these sound neat as well. There are so many gaited breeds/crosses now to look at... thanks!
Yeah I have scoliosis due to a fusion of the last 2 vertebrae in my low back being fused to my tailbone... the chiropractor isn't sure if I was born with it or if it happened very early in life but I was never tested for scoliosis as a kid. I only found out I had it when I was 19... but always had migraines, back pain, and tailbone pain growing up. My folks thought I was just whining

You showed them! My neice was like that, kept complaining about pains. My sister-in-law insisted she was a whiney brat... I forget what ailment she ended up having but it was real and had a fancy name and a treatment... she told them!!!!!

I have a bad back and have ridden gaited Saddlebreds for years. They are the smoothest horses to ride and are not any more crazy or nervous than any other horse. I think every breed has it's good ones and it's hyper ones--just like children LOL

My doctor told me only to ride gaited or Tennesee Walkers.

Not really. I have a son and a daughter. I keep expecting my son's head to spin around and stuff to come out of his mouth like in The Exorcist. My daughter is as sweet as can be. LOL

Gaited Breed Question

I really think that you should look into the gaited Bashkir Curlies. You get the awsomeness of the curly, unusual coat and a really nice horse in the process! Haha You can get them in all shapes and sizes, and usually they are really laid back. Even if they don't have alot of experience with humans, that is just how they are. My arab/curly cross mare tends to be a little more on the hyper side because of her breeding, but she does great for me. I have known alot of good gaited Curlies that can stride out with the best of them but also tone it down for the Quarter Horses and Paints that roam the trail, also. You should think on it!
