TWH -GELDING FOR SALE - $2500 (LOMETA)

HE IS A 15 HAND TALL SORREL PAINT GELDING, REGISTERT TENESSEE WALKER. HE IS NATURALLY GAITED. HE IS 8 YEARS OLD. GREAT TRAIL HORSE. GREAT GROUNDMANNERS. HE IS TRAINED IN "ENGLISH" WITH RIDING CLUES. HE IS FROM A BREEDER IN MISSISSIPPI AND WHEN HE WAS A COLT HIS PRIZE WAS 3500$ AT THAT TIME. JUST SAYING HE IS VERY GOOD BREED. I ASK 2500$. TEST RIDE HIM, CALL ME

The Tennessee Walking Horse is considered one of the light breeds of the equine family. Horses that were originally bred by the farmers of Middle Tennessee who wanted to develop a breed of horse that could work in the fields during the day, and give the owner a comfortable saddle gait. The breed gained wide popularity for this smooth gait and it's agility in the rocky middle Tennessee terrain.

This breed is composed from Thoroughbreds, Canadian Pacer, Saddlebreds, Morgans, American Standardbreds, and Narranganett Pacers. All were fused into one animal in the middle Tennessee bluegrass region. These crosses produced a saddle gait, which eventually became the "Running Walk". The result, over countless years, was the first breed of horse to bear the state name - The Tennessee Walking Horse.

The Tennessee Walking Horse is a fine family horse due to its smooth easy ride and its calm, docile temperament. The versatile Tennessee Walking Horse is suitable for ranch work; they are excellent reining and cutting horses. Tennessee Walkers are also used for driving, jumping, and western style gaming events. And if the owner's preference is the show ring, TWH can compete in Model, English, and Western classes.Used as an English or Western pleasure mount, the breed wins the hearts those of all ages, the timid, as well as the experienced riders suits the TWH.This horse is frequently seen in programs that offer riding to the handicapped. Frequently, choosing a Tennessee Walker becomes necessary for those riders who have back problems. The Tennessee Walking Horse has stamina with many horses working long after the age of 20
The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders & Exhibitors Association was formed in 1935, they currently have more than 20,000 members. Close to 300,000 horses have been registered since the TWHBEA was formed.
Most Walking horses are multigaited, but the most desirable gait is the runningwalk. TWH can flat-foot walk at speeds of four to seven miles per hour. The running walk is a very smooth ground covering eight to ten miles per hour. What exactly is a Running Walk? The running walk is a four-beat lateral gait. It is similar to a walk of any regular horse of any other breed. The difference is that it gets speeds of up to 10 miles per hour. The horse will glide over the track left by the front foot with his hind foot (right rear over right front, left rear over left front). The action of the back foot slipping over the front track is known as overstride. Overstride is unique to the walking horse breed. A Tennessee Walking Horse will nod its head in rhythm with the cadence of its feet. Walking Horses are born with the ability to do other gaits in addition to the running walk. Some of these gaits are the rack, pace, foxtrot, stepping pace, , single-foot and other variations of the famous running walk. The Tennessee Walking Horse is also famous for their "rocking chair" canter, which is a collected gallop. The canter is performed in much the same way as other breeds, but the walking horse seems to have a more relaxed way of performing this gait.

The Tennessee Walking Horse performs three distinct gaits: the flat foot walk, running walk, and canter. These three are the gaits for which the Tennessee Walking Horse is famous, with the running walk being an inherited, natural gait unique to this breed. Many Tennessee Walking Horses are able to perform the rack, stepping pace, fox-trot, single-foot and other variations of the famous running walk. While not desirable in the show ring, the above mentioned gaits are smooth, easy, trail riding gaits.



The Flat Walk is a brisk, long-reaching walk that can cover from four to eight miles an hour. This is a four cornered gait with each of the horse's feet hitting the ground separately at regular intervals. The horse will glide over the track left by the front foot with his hind foot: right rear over right front, left rear over left front. The action of the back foot slipping over the front track is known as overstride. Overstride is unique to the walking horse breed. The hock should show only forward motion; vertical hock action is highly undesirable. A Tennessee Walking Horse will nod its head in rhythm with the cadence of its feet. This nodding head motion, along with overstride, are two features that are unique to the Tennessee Walking Horse. This distinctive head motion along with overstride are both things the judge should take into consideration when judging a Tennessee Walking Horse.



The Running Walk is the gait for which the walking horse is most noted. This extra-smooth, gliding gait is basically the same as the flat walk with a noticeable difference in the rate of speed between the two gaits. Proper form should never be sacrificed for excessive speed in a good running walk. The breed can travel 10 to 20 miles per hour at this gait. As the speed is increased, the horse over-steps the front track with the back by a distance of six to eighteen inches. The more "stride" the horse has, the better "walker" it is considered to be. It is this motion that gives the rider a feeling of gliding through the air as if propelled by some powerful but smooth-running machine. The running walk is a smooth, easy gait for both horse and rider. A true Tennessee Walking Horse will continue to nod while performing the running walk.

The third gait is The Canter. The canter is performed in much the same way as other breeds, but the walking horse seems to have a more relaxed way of performing this gait. The canter is a forward movement performed in a diagonal manner to the right or to the left. On the right lead, the horse should start the gait in this order: left hind, right hind and left fore together, then right fore. The footfall for the left lead is right hind, left hind and right fore, then left fore. When performed in a ring, the animal should lead his canter with the foreleg to the inside of the ring. In the canter, the horse gives one the abundance of ease with lots of spring and rhythm, with proper rise and fall to afford a thrill from sitting in the saddle. Thus, the canter lifts the front end giving an easy rise and fall motion much like a rocking chair. This is often referred to as the "rocking-chair" gait.

But isn't the brow band supposed to pinch the ears ....ummm yeah, it makes them listen better or something right? Save me from the "I can't put tack on a horse correctly people" AFTER you save the horse in the picture...And yes, I know accidents happen, but Ummm it is a SALE ad.

Ok for real, does anyone else ever feel a dip in their IQ while reading some of these adds??? Or is it just me?

Ughhh. Didn't even take the time to groom the horse before throwing a saddle on it, either. Bad grooming, bad tack...And I am not even sure what sort of "posture" that is?? The paint looks terrified. Poor thing.

He's a very good boy looking for a loving home.
