The Breeders’ Association grants them a charter after the state of residence has granted the group a charter to set up a non-profit corporation. The Breeders’ Association charter authorizes the group to carry on its activities under regulations and stipulations set by the par­ ent organization. Q—What about the Breeders’ Association and the pleas­ ure horse? A—The Breeders’ Association is vitally interested in the Tennessee Walking Horse as a pleasure animal. After all, not every horse that’s born makes a show horse. We at the Breeders’ Association have always stressed the point that the Tennessee Walking Horse is the World’s Greatest Pleas­ ure Horse. It is made For the Young and For the Old. This horse is very docile in nature. It is gentle and very easily trained and broken to ride. We have always stressed the point that once you had this horse broken to ride and to be used—you could get him out of the stable today and he would give you a good ride—and you could go back to the stable a week later and he would still give you a good ride; he would be the same horse that you had ridden the week before. He’s a horse that once you have him broke to his gaits, he stays a gentle, docile animal. Of course, it is recommended that the horse have an opportunity to exercise himself regularly but he does not require constant training—once he is broken and trained properly. There are some breeds of horse where this is not the case. We have letters from doctors all over the United States attesting to the fact that “the greatest tonic in the world is a ride on the back of a Tennessee Walking Horse.” I guess we have more physicians and more doctors own­ ing Tennessee Walking Horses than we have persons of any other profession—represented in ownership of animals of this breed. How Do Registrations Compare? Q—How does the Tennessee Walking Horse compare in registrations of other breeds. A—At this time the Tennessee Walking Horse is in fourth place among the breeds registering horses’ but we are first among the breeds listed as “show horses” not in­ volved in racing. Registrations at this time (1962) show the Thoroughbred first in numbers; Standardbred second and Quarter Horse third. We are a “show horse and a pleasure horse” and we have been at the head of the list in registrations of show horses for the past five years. We have been No. 1 in the registra­ tions of show horses and pleasure horses in the United States from 1957 through 1961—and surely we will be first this year. Our registrations for 1961 totalled 3,650. Our numbers are increasing steadily. The 5-gaited horse, the walk-trot (3-gaited) horse, the fine harness horse, represented by the American Saddlebred Association—is next in line. I believe they registered about 2,200 horses in 1961, whereas we had 3,550. That gives you a comparison with where the next horse breed stands. Continued on page 16
