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

Q—What about the Breeders’ Association and the pleas
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
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
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.
