  1. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hey, guys, so I’m at a loss and I feel like such a failure as a horse owner. I have had my Tennessee walker mare for a year now. She’s 15 years old and when I met her I loved her! She was amazing everything I wanted! So I bought her. Well, a year later and I still can’t do anything with her...
  2. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    I’ve sold my short quarter horse and gotten a tall Tennessee walker. Will a Tom Thumb work on him like my cousins are suggesting or do I need something else? he’s13 and seems to be gentle. Can you suggest any good western bits for gaited horses $70 and under

    So. This is going to sound like a really dumb, probably obvious question- if you know it. So here goes. Has anyone ever heard of... Sternum breaks? or something similar? in TWH's? Ya know... all that exaggerated high stepping? Pretty sure if i tried that, i would most definitely knee myself in...
  4. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I am considering buying a 16 year old Tennessee Walker. She's beautiful but I fear quite defiant. In round pen it takes me cracking whip on ground extensively to move beyond a walk. She is listening but disinterested. She won't turn into pen and move in opposite direction, rather just stands...
  5. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hey all! I created my account specifically for getting help with this horse so hopefully someone can help me out. I live in central Virginia but finding a gaited horse trainer has been especially hard since not a lot of people take the time to call back. I have a 20 year old Walking...
  6. Horse Breeds
    I'm actually wanting to see if there are any horses out there like my own gelding! I'm wondering if there are any other Chincoteague Pony crosses out and about? I would love to hear about and see them! :love: So here's a bit about him: My boy Chance is 2 1/2 years now and I've had him since he...
  7. General Riding queries
    I recently got a new horse, a 15-year-old Tennessee Walker gelding. He's a very well-behaved, solid, all-around horse, and he rides Western. His previous owner was an older lady who did just about everything with him in the ten years she had him including some pleasure classes, gaming, trail...
  8. Gaited Horses
    Hello, I have a new (to me) TWH arriving on Sunday. Her bit and bridle aren't coming with her. (I don't know much about bits. When I was a kid I just rode in a western curb bit - rode my horse for pleasure around the farm and my house.) So I need to buy a new bit and bridle. To start...
  9. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    So i'm trying to work on getting my twh to stay collected. He's very heavy in the mouth and I really want to work on his gaits so he isn't so pacey or doesn't throw his head up at the canter. I'm wondering if there is a certain bit I could use that won't be harsh on his mouth but will help him...

    Radioactive Horses Blinding Please enjoy :) I know my riding isn't exactly perfect but yes most of these videos only have me riding :)
  11. Show Jumping
    So in January I got my 13 year old 17hh TWH. He's a big guy! He's so perfect and we enjoy a lot of trail rides together. Unfortunately I moved and don't have a trailer so although i'm more in the country i'm farther from accessible trails. It's just the gravel rode. Yuck. ANYWAYS-- the girl I...
  12. Horse Breeds
    I own an Arab/Tennessee Walker palomino mare. She's an 18 year old retired barrel racer, and maybe the weirdest horse I've ever worked with. She's a sweetheart, but she can also be hardheaded, hot tempered, and a little spooky. I've attributed this to the mix of hotbloods, but does anyone else...

    I have a wonderful 5 year old Tennessee Walking Horse gelding, "Pushers Extra Virgin Gen", he is out of Pusher and Generator, excellent blood lines. Green broke but needs a lot work. Approximately 15.2 hh. UTD on coggins, farrier, and wormer. Aims to please, very sweet and loves to be loved. He...
  14. Gaited Horses
    So we will be getting our first Tennessee Walker in about a month. She will be 6 months old. Since I am not a member of the TWHA, would it be a better route (financially) for me to pay the $60 for the year and be able to get the free transfer on her? I am not finding anything giving me an...
  15. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I just got my first horse! she came two days ago and is a 13 year old tennessee walking horse. i went out yesterday to groom and spend time with her but every time i get close she runs away from me. she will come up to me if i have hay or carrots but she sticks out her neck and takes the hay or...
  16. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Im about to get a tennessee walker and I'm a little confused on what saddle would be best for me and the horse. I want to ride her for fun, around land so not technically trail riding but just around for fun. Im not sure what type of saddle i should get? will i need a special saddle for gaited...
  17. Horse Talk
    I'm about to start the process of registering my two Tennessee Walkers. I'm getting them registered in the IPWHR since they can't be registered in the TWHBEA or any purebred Walker registry due to complications with my mare's sire and dam's papers (both purebred Walkers but registered in...
