There are ranchers in MT in a certain area where Tennessee Walkers are popular. One guy started riding and raising them years ago and sold some to neighbors. I don't know how purebred they've tried to keep them. They do whatever needs doing.
A neighbor at home will only ride Missouri Fox Trotters. Is quite opinionated about it and tells us we're all nuts for riding QHs and TBs. They don't doctor alone, always at least two people/horses (to doctor mature stock), but they, too, get things done just fine. And feels great at the end of the day.
I tell her I never hurt and she insists I do! Lol
I imagine you can use anything at open ropings. You'd be able to here, anyway.
