  1. Saddle Discussions & Saddle Fitting Queries
    I'm in the market for a new saddle for my TWH. I'm just now getting back into riding.I've rode TWH all my life. My boy is 3 now and just started training. I'm waiting to get something comfortable for both of us but I have no clue where to start!!! When I rode before I used a very very old buena...
  2. Gaited Horses
    Hello:) I have a Tennessee walking horse that I have had for almost 2 years now. He does gait but never really stays in it for longer then 10 second. He definitely prefers trotting and I don’t mind. But is this normal? Could it be pain related? He is a senior horse. And I have had chiropractic...

    I own a former padded TWH, he’s about 9-10 years old. i have never padded him but his previous owner said whoever had him padded him(not sure how long) i put regular shoes on him but he still is moving slow(almost like he’s still padded). I want him to move like a regular Tennessee walking...
  4. Horse Talk
    I have a 9-10 year old TWH, I was thinking about putting him in a wonder bit. Someone said that it’s a training bit only I’ve been riding him in a long shank walking horse bit since September. He pretty much does everything that need him to do UNTIL we’re at a trail ride and say that I want to...
  5. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So this is my almost 6 month old filly Bambi, and her two parents. Dad was a black/white paint, and Mom has changed colors! The first photo of her was when she was 3, the second photo of her is as she looks now at 12 yrs old: completely gray! I am praying she will be a Smokey gray paint, but I’m...

  7. Horse Health
    Hello, I have a twh and the vet said he was fine last fall, he might have the slightest bit of arthritis in this front knee. Since then I’ve been giving him sta-sound flaxseed hyaluronic acid and vegetable oil. He seems perfectly fine playing out in the pasture and lifting up his legs and things...
  8. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello:) I have a twh and he’s a really great horse but I’m wanting to show Him. But I unfortunately can’t at the moment because he doesn’t trot under saddle, but he trots perfectly fine while being lunged. When I try to trot on back he either starts cantering or an abnormal gait that only last a...
  9. Horse Conformation Queries and Critique
    Hi all, Just for a little fun I wanted to see what everyone else thought about my TWH mare’s conformation. I have no idea about her lineage or background whatsoever. Photos aren’t that great since she rarely stands square but oh well
  10. Horse Talk
    I've hear stories of horses and ponies with large sclera. I like the look. I am not sure if she has a "kind eye" or not.
  11. Gaited Horses
    Hi I am familiar with thoroughbred and quarter horse blood lines but I know very little about Tennessee walking bloodlines. Can you tell me if my walker has good lines? If you had to buy a horse based only on bloodlines would you buy him? Also if you know any dispositions that are common in his...
  12. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I have a TWH that was a rescue and is seven years old. He was not ridden frequently before but the previous owner did take him to a trainer for 30 days. When I got him last summer I rode him pretty frequently and he would get spooked occasionally and buck, but he was gradually calming down over...
  13. Gaited Horses
    Hello, I am new to the TWH community with a recent TWH addition to my "herd". I am curious about her pedigree and value. Is she worth considering breeding? She has a great personality and smooth easy going gait. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
  14. 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...
  15. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I have a 16 year old tennessee walker/draft cross that I've had for 8 months now! When I first got her she hadn't been worked or ridden for about 3 years and came from a Montana ranch where she had been a broodmare and strictly trail horse. It has taken me up until the last couple months to get...
  16. Gaited Horses
    So i've posted here before about various problems and thanks to all your help, various online things, and other people IRL i've been able to successfully get my TWH Skyy to gait. He will do a flatwalk/dogwalk and a RW. I had to change bits to a walking horse bit from the snaffle but once I did...

  18. Gaited Horses
    I was wondering if there is any way at all to see if my TWH mare has had any foals in the past. I have tried contacting the owner, but he doesn't want to talk to me. Thank you for helping!!!
