  1. New to Horses
    New to the forum, and just got my own horses for the first time in my life after being around them for much of it, and showing Arabians in my teens. The big boys (palomino is Rambler, pinto is Gambler) are 75% and 50% saddlebred, respectively. Gambler is 25% TWH. They are half brothers, and 10...
  2. Horse Conformation Critique
    I don't know if it's possible to check out a horses confirmation at this age. He is a 2012 colt out of some great parents, 7 WGC in his bloodlines though whether you prefer foundation or heritage it may not be what your looking for. Anyways what do you think? He's one of the colts I'm looking at...
  3. Horse Training
    Hey guys I need some advice. So I've owned 3 horses before, all I started from the ground up and my 2 mares were angels, no spook or bolt from their very first ride. My gelding was sound sensitive and a bit crazy and studdy but I have gotten him over it. Now to help my landlady out I agreed to...
  4. Gaited Horses
    Hey guys! I'm looking at buying a colt, maybe to start breeding but maybe to geld as he gets older and turn into a saddle horse. I recently got a heritage outcross upgrade (3/4 heritage) mare this summer and fell in love with her. My gelding is more foundation with 5 WGC in his bloodlines but...
  5. Gaited Horses
    Hi, I know little to almost nothing about gaited horses, I love the look of the Tennesse Walking Horse but the gaited paces dont sound appealing to me. Do TWHs have to be gaited? Is it more of a genetic thing or a trained thing or both? Thanks.
  6. Horse Health
    I have a 22 y/o Tennessee Walker female. The other night, when I brought her up to eat her grain for dinner, at first she acted like she was choking, and wouldn't eat, (she has choked before so I started working on taking care of that), but then she started acting like her belly was bothering...
  7. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hello! I'm a new horse crazy girl here and I wanted to introduce myself to ya'll. I'm 15 and I have a TWH mare and three miniature horses. My mare is a 9-year old, 15hh, sorrel horse with a sweet, but sometimes stubborn, disposition, and she'll do anything for food, lol. She's easily excited...
  8. Horse Talk
    Over the past several months, I have noticed several horses for sale via HorseClicks.com and EquineNow.com from a seller called Midwest Walkers located in Mt. Vernon, Missouri. Midwest Walkers does not seem to have a website. Wondering if anyone has ever purchased a horse from this group or...

  10. Horse Training
    My seven year-old walker gelding naturally holds his head out and relatively low, like a western pleasure horse. My trainer told me to put a tie-down on him to get him to flex and collect more (he's very clumsy) and to hold his head like a Walker "should", and for some reason I don't remember I...
