In the canter the horse gives one an abundance of ease with lots of spring and rhythm , and with just the proper rise and fall to afford a thrill from sitting the saddle in this fastest of the three gaits — and there is ever a grace and a beauty when the horse does this “ rocking chair ” motion called the canter .
These comfortable riding gaits have become fixed characteristics of the breed through generations of meticulous mating . The natural tendency of these horses to go these “ free and easy ” gaits has made their training a comparatively simple matter , for in most instances they are “ natural walkers ”. Their performance is highly acceptable to a large degree of pleasure-riding without the necessity of long months spent in routine training , because their movements are natural and not artificial and because they need no bitting or spurring to “ get down and do it .”
The Tennessee Walking Horse of today averages around 15 % hands and will often weigh about 1,200 pounds . They are of sufficient size and stamina to do reasonable farm work and to carry ordinary weight for long hours in the saddle . These horses are on the rugged order , but are entirely without any trace of coarseness . In color they range from pure white to jet black , and are grey , bay , chestnut , sorrel and roan ; a few are yellow with white mane and tail . Their markings are touches of beauty which often manifest themselves in four stockings , hind or fore socks , bald , blaze or star , and mixed mane and tail .
In general conformation they are short in the back , deep in the body , full in the flanks , and of good width in the chest . Their necks are long and are well-set on very sloping shoulders . The have flat , cordy legs and sound feet of ample size which are always a challenge to lameness . They posses quality as indicated by symmetry of parts , fine silky hair , thin hides , and hard , dense bone .
This physical makeup , together with the best blood lines of the breed having been crossed throughout past generations in careful mating , enables the Tennessee Walking Horse to do the correct flat-foot walk , the fast running walk and the graceful , rolling canter with amazing endurance . And aside from blood-lines influence and breeding , the factor of nutrition has played an important part in the present-day development of this superb saddle horse . For more than a century they have lived in the bluegrass section of Middle Tennessee where feed and pasture crops have been grown on a soil that is rich in mineral content , particularly lime and phosphorus which are the builders of bone and muscle in both human and animal life . This has given these horses substance and stamina , two equine requisites for rendering service and for affording pleasure .
In disposition , the Tennessee Walking Horse is gentle and kind , is docile and easily handled , and is probably more constantly in contact with man than any other horse in America . This even-tempered and intelligent horse is especially adapted to use by inexperienced riders , women and
