    Yes she loves to learn. Very willing and level headed. I just want to find something for her that she'll love and feels natural for her

    Tennessee walkers are very versatile. There are 5 at my barn, one of which I ride. Every month I do a hunter pace with the barn girls. Really fun, we actually placed 1st last weekend! We do the flat class but go over the smaller logs just for fun. Endurance is another thing you could consider. The list goes on.

    I always go to the idea of "helping other's" first. I figure if you can and with some simple intelligent "think ahead" plans, either every day or a couple days a week have kids and or adults benefit from her by riding her with you assisting. I will guarantee you one thing, your heart and soul will never be the same again. As far as the horse, why they end up being "one of a kind" cause they "know" what "kind goodness" they're doing.

    I volunteer for Equestrian Special Olympics but her current owner didn't want me to put her in the program if I did get her, considering she wants flicka to be loved and attached to one person....
