Any experience with these guys?

I am keeping my walker at a walking horse heavy barn but there are some warmbloods there too because there is an eventing trainer on staff as well. Well there is a guy there that looks alot like this horse. He is the Saquiel Oneail at the barn. Total athlete. And he is the sweetest horse ever. Such a great breed and a great disposition.Was wondering if they are all this great or if he is special. Im a gaited girl and cant see myself ever swaying from that but if i did get a trotting horse i would love one of these .

He is pretty but I know nothing of the breed. I have heard wonderful things about walkers but just can't leave my qh's behind to see if they would be a breed for me :)

I feel the same way. I used to be into walkers back when i was a kid and lived in Memphis. Well as an adult i live in Texas and there is noting but QH and APH here.So i did what texans do and got a paint. I hated every minute of it. Loved the horse himself but was wanting him to be something else so bad. So i sold him and got a walker and it was like being home again.So i totally understand .

They can be fantastic jumpers! Bred for jumping. And normally they are chestnuts. Thats pretty much all I know about them.

The ones I've met have been phenomenal athletes, really good to work with but can run a touch "hot". The ones I've met have all be really clever and need to be kept busy, but if you can tap into their potential they're really fabulous.

As Casymyhorserocks said, they're mostly bred for jumping, but they're suited to most any english discipline.

I rode one when I was a kid; ever since that I've wanted one.

My friend has one. That horse could jump the moon and was very good at dressage. She was a nice mare, a little opinionated. I don't know if it was just because she was a mare of a breed thing. Very nice horse overall and an easy keeper to boot.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.
