( Continued from page 9 ) children , and by persons advanced in age . Yet , this “ gentleman of the equines ” is game to the core and its abundance of courage is able to cope with all circumstances of its fine and useful life , as well as to aid its rider to meet the exigencies of the road or bridlepath which sometimes come to even the best of those who travel on horseback .
Thus from the distant days when the housewife in calico dress and sunbonnet rode a side saddle to the general store at the cross roads with a basket of eggs on one arm and the reins in the other hand ( and probably a child or two behind her ), to the present day of ride-a-thons and show rings — the Tennessee Walking Horse has “ walked ” and served . ’ Tis but small wonder that they are beloved of their breeders and their owners .
Today , this horse has become the elixir to tired business men who seek a not-too-strenuous exercise when the day ’ s work is done . In the saddle and on this horse , his face grows ruddy and his whole being is “ tuned up ” in the gentle but exhilarating healthful diversion of horseback riding .
So if you have reached the age where you don ’ t care to work while you play or labor while you ride ; or if it has ceased to thrill you in mastering some spirited steed of rough and fast gait , then you should join the vast army of those who are seeking pleasure in the smooth saddle perfectly relaxed , and enlist among the hundreds who are daily turning to the Tennessee Walking Horse for style without fire , comfort without fratigue , and for an abundance of joy , health and satisfaction which only this supreme pleasure horse can give in the fullest measure .
And if you have children , remember that Nature ’ s great out-of-doors is a wholesome and effective physical and spiritual clinic to human experience . Boys and girls who grow up in the saddle are not only supple and stalwart of body and limb , but they are courageous , well-poised , and possessed of clean and alert minds that will save them from maudlin sentimentality and unwholesome complexes . The Tennessee Walking Horse , from this angle with the youth of the land , is a potential bulwark to the moral status of our social order .
To mention particular and outstanding horses of the breed would be to make comparisons which are said to be odious ; but there are scores of breeders throughout the nation who own hundreds of these great pleasure horses , many of which have excelled in keen and healthy competition in show rings and have been greatly admired along the roadside and in ride-a-thons held in every section . These men are seeking a market for the products of their breeding and the results of their labors .
The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders ’ Association of America , with headquarters and offices at Lewisburg , Tennessee , stands ready to answer your inquiries and to serve your needs toward giving you health and happiness in the saddle while mounted on “ THE WORLD ’ S GREATEST PLEASURE HORSE ”— and it ’ s “ a dollar to a doughnut ” if you ride one today , you ’ ll own one tomorrow !
