Smile My Tennessee Walker

Just for fun. This is my 13 year old twh gelding. I know his toes in the back point outwards a bit but what do ya'll think about his confirmation?

Welcome to the forum, dirtybird.

If I wanted to nit-pick, I could talk about some teeny things, but I won't. How nice to see a lovely boy, with very few problems, in beautiful condition and obviously well loved. His conformation is a whole lot better than many TWHs we see out there, and offered at stud. What do you do with him?

THIS is what I think of when someone says Tennessee Walking Horse.

NICE shoulder, LOW hocks that are large and roomy, LOW knees, STRONG topline, EXCELLENT neck set.

May be a bit tied in at the knee. Needs his feet trimmed properly.
He gait as nice as he looks?

With the exception of the tied in knee, this is what a TWH should look like... a horse with substance with the added running walk feature.

I see a lot of gaited horses being some what rough through the croup and hips, conformation flaws or the way they are ridden? Your horse isn't this way.

Does he ride as smooth as he looks?!

Thanks ya'll! He has an extremely smooth gait and an amazing canter. He is mainly a trail horse and I do pretty much everything I can with him. Lol I've never shown him.

I SO agree, Elana. That's why I said, "His conformation is a whole lot better than many TWHs we see out there, and offered at stud."

Even though I had Saddlebreds, for many years I attended TWH shows, here in California. I seldom saw horses as nicely made as our OP's boy. And I really looked, because at one time, I was seriously considering buying one.

Maybe the OP could share his pedigree with us. It would be interesting to know.

Now that's one handsome Tennessee Walker!
