I STRONGLY support the ethical/respectful/compassionate/educated as much as possible treatment and legislation to support that treatment of ALL of God's wonderful creatures of the earth, sky, and waters! I had the great pleasure and privilege of "owning" a Tennessee Walker as a teen. His name was Storm. He was a WONDERFUL horse.

I have worked with the USDA Inn Washington to break the many years of a few bringing sore horses to the Springfield, Illinois State Fair.   Also turned them onto a show in Iowa.   I'm very proud to be a voice for these horses.  Also rescued a few ex-padded horses from TN.  I will do WHATEVER it takes.

I have a 10 year old TWH that seems to want to pace more than the four beat running walk. I am looking to learn how to work with him on developing his running walk. I have worked with a few farriers but have not been completely satisfied with the results. 

I have found this site with the hopes that I can get information about training my TWH. I live in an area that has few TWH's so local info has been difficult to obtain.

In my opinion the Tennessee Walking Horse Asc should not allow thick pads at all!  Paso Fino's, Rockies, Peruvian Paso's are shown naturally!  Why can't we start having shows for Walkers that don't allow BIG LICK horses?  I live In Southern Illinois, We do not have many horse shows but if someone had the money to build a show arena around here and start hosting Natural Gaited Horse shows..  We just might be able to shift people's mindset...One show at a time!

Durch Zufall habe ich ein Foto gesehen auf dem ein Tennessee Walker mit diesen -High heels- herumgestakst ist und habe eine befreundete Walker Züchterin gefragt, was das ist, sie erklärte mir mit welch Qualen diese armen Kreaturen von Fohlen auf, dazu abgerichtet werden für Shows und Geld die Beine zu werfen...

Diese Walker Züchterin machte mich auf diese Homepage hier aufmerksam, und ich finde es gut, das man hier zeigt das der Walker kein Spielzeug für menschliche Machenschaften ist, sondern einfach nur ein wunderbarer 4 beiniger Partner, den man schätzen sollte und nicht quälen!!!

..was allerdings natürlich auch für alle anderen Geschöpfe dieser Welt gilt!

we have last year purchased our first walking horse she is now a 3 1/2 year old we love her natural walking gait which she even does in her own enclosure she is such a joy and we think the natural gait is so much more apealing than the extreme gaits we have seen since we started studying the breed after we got shadow she is a black and white spotted with one blue eye  and she has the grey lines around her spots i believe a friend of ours told us it was called agrigated? we are so in love with this breed of horse but do agree whole heartedly the natural gait is best :)

The practice of 'soring' is deplorable. As trainers and riders of these horses, we owe it to put our vanity aside and appreciate the wonderful gift bestowed by watching these lovely horses flourish naturally. Horses submit to human companionship with grace, we should correspond by not abusing our position. Participation in show events can be enjoyed, and aspirations met, without resorting to cruelty or violence. Let's put a stop to these vile practices.

I use to have and ride these beautiful horses! The only thing that really hurt me and that I hated was the way that a lot of people hurt the horses with the cruel ways that they would do things to them and their hooves just to make them get a better or more higher gait out of them! This was many years ago and I can only pray that this cruelty does not exist anymore because I am older now & if I knew or saw it being done now,I would have to seek help because such treatment should certainly be against the law! This is such a beautiful & spirited breed of horse and they are truly such an art form in motion to even watch! 

28-09-2010 United States Supporter

There is nothing more disgusting than watching a disfigured horse being made to gait in an unnatural way. There is far more beauty in watching a pain free horse freely gait in the manner in which they were born to do.

I have two beautiful Tennessee Walkers, a 4-year old mare we bought as a yearling and raised and trained, and her 4 month old filly we bred and will raise and train to incorporate into our riding program.  We trail ride, do parades and performance, and a little bit of dressage and jumping.  Our girls have the old foundation bloodlines such as Midnight Sun, Ebony Masterpiece and Parader's Black Dust, with a bit of color added from horses like Paint the Town and Spirit of Evil Knievel.  They always have and always will be 100% natural.

I completely support organizations such as this one. I don't think that horses like TWH's should be abused so their owner's can win a trophy. Historically, TWH's were all around farm horses, NOT lame high steppers who live their lives in pain. I love my paint TWH , who is barefoot! We will soon be doing competitive trail challenges and I expect we will do very well. I am moving to the Nashville area in a few months and hope to meet lots of horse people that feel the same way about their horses.

I have just bought my first Tennesee Walking Horse, the 15-year-old gelding Colonel Sanders from Maryan Zyderveld. He is multi-gaited, doing the walk, flat walk, running walk, trot, rack and canter all with regular shoes. I look very much forward to learning a lot from this talented horse, with the help of Walking horse trainer and breeder Martin Wingenfeld, and want to give him a good home for the rest of his life.

Kind regards,

Dear all

I am delighted to find so many like-minded fans in Europe - up until now I thought the concentration of interest was around the US.  Here in England, apart from the beautiful Icelandics and Paso Finos, we seem to have a lack of gaited horses, but I would LOVE to hear from anyone in the UK to prove me wrong!  For many years I have been a fan of the Tennesse Walking Horse and the Peruvian Paso, but have never been lucky enough to see one in the flesh!

     I am new to the Tennessee Walking Horse breed (as an owner). I've been into quarterhorses for years but due to a spinal condition I have looked toward the gaited horses. I am sure this is a very often heard tail. I have, however, for years seen what even my untrained eye could tell was an unnatural and unhealthy movement that some people have forced upon their horses. Having been around horses in general, I had heard talk of some of the "training methods" (torture if you ask me) to obtain this. I would also like to say I think this grossly exagerated gait is unsightly to boot. I always figured it a testament to the willingness and gentle nature of this breed that it would even submit to this treatment without blowing up in training, trail, or show at the first chance it found. I had heard the breed was easy to handle and a pleasure to own. I am soon to find out for myself as I have just purchased a four year old mare. So far she has lived up to everything I have heard. So here I am, looking for as much exposure to people that know the breed and use common sense and compassion in training and working their horses.

The time for the SORE Walking Horse must come to an end! There is no reason, rationale, or excuse for abuse of the TWH. Horses were meant to have natural, sound, sane training, showing and use.

What has become of the Tennessee Walking Horse in Tennessee is a warped and twisted mutation of this wonderful breed.

TWHBEA has dug themselves a hole financially and lined each other's pockets for too long!  A registration should be nothing more than a record-keeping organization. There is no excuse for indiscriminate wastage of members' funds through these years.

Hi there....
I heard from your organisation through ETWHA, the German assosiation for Walking Horses. End of June I joined a clinic at Gaited Horse Ranch in Belgium and It was really good to see there are more people who are treating there horses the natuaral way. I by myself own several Walking Horses and I enjoy them very much. They are all barefooted and I must say that this is the best way to have your horse walking. I appreciate that NWH as well as ETHWA is absolutely against the so called turn backs as well as they are against any of those crazy show paddings. I do some trail riding but I never use horse shoes. The only protection for myx horses hoofs are EasyBoots. I believe that is the best I can do to protect them and have them naturaly walking. Okay. There is so much more to tell about the horses and the way we as humans should treat them right that this would blow up my space here. Anyway good luck to NWH and their way of keeping the walking horse walking naturaly.

We just purchased our first 2 Tennessee Walking Horses. We already had several Spotted Saddle Horses and Peruvian Pasos but just recently became avid TWH lovers!  We purchased an 8 year old stallion named Power's Touch Of Power, a black and white tobiano from Mississippi and a 3 year old cremello tobiano named Apollo's Miss America.  We can't wait to start riding them and want to meet other TWH owners in our area. We are in southern California.

I studying to be a veterinary technician and have worked with animals all my life, including owning two horses.  In one of my classes, an ethics class, the issue of soring and saddleseat training methods came up and I was sad to learn that many barbaric training practices continue. 

My first horse was a Morab and I boarded him at an Arabian training barn where I witnessed first hand many acts of cruelty they called "training".  Those horses were all scared to death, and when I rode them I felt like I was stitting on a keg of dynamite.  It was one of the more horrible riding experiences I've had, and left me with a permanent distaste of the "saddleseat" tradition.  

I rode my horse Western and English (did some jumping) but he really excelled at Dressage.  I've seen many Saddlebreds and Tennesee Walkers and Morgan excell in Dressage and other non-Saddleseat disciplines I hope to see more of that in the future, because they are such athletic animals.

The more I learn medically, the more I realize that many breeders, owners, and trainers are willingly ignorant to the pain and suffering they are causing the animals they claim to love.  I was very glad to come across your sight, because I once knew and loved a natural Tenessee Walker and wish that they all could live like horses should... naturally!

Ich besitze selber eine Tennessee Walker Stute namens Honor's Victory. Wir trainieren unseren Walk ganz ohne Gewichte oder so was und haben es trotzdem geschafft, dass sie nun einen 100%ig taktklaren Walk, Running Walk und Canter geht und im Gelände auch mit den trabenden Pferden mithält und wenn es dann doch mal zu schnell wird schalten wir einfach einen Gang hoch und traben ebenfalls, denn auch den Trab beherrscht sie taktklar und in dressurmäßiger Haltung.

Ich bin ehrer ein Freizeitreiter, jedoch auch daran interessiert, mein Pferd pferdefreundlich, also über den Rücken und viel vorwärts abwärts (auch im Walk) zu reiten und das alles mit einem Sidepull (nach Lind Tellington Jones) und Westernsattel, da sie eine absolute Abneigung gegen jegliche Gebisse, egal wie weich, hat und ich es natürlicher finde, mit einem Sidepull als mit einem Gebiss zu reiten.

Außerdem ist "Vicky" der einzige Walker in unserem gesamten Stall, der einen wunderschönen Jogg beherscht, denn sie bis nahe an unsere normale Schrittgeschwindigkeit gehen kann. Ein Allaroundtalent also.

I have posted on my website why people shouldn't be breeding to "Champions" if the champion got there by being padded, sored or chained. Then I go on to show my own horses, at freedom in their paddock, doing natural "big licks". It is my fervent hope that people need to stop supporting any Big Lick shows and take away the focus from the East Coast, where most of the Big Lickers are living. For years I have wanted a venue for my own horses here in California, but to no avail. Maybe we should be pressuring the individual states that support this kind of abuse....

Watch for the book, Making the Gait: Abuse and Corruption in the Tennessee Walking Horse Industry. I was at the Celebration in Shelbyville, Tennessee last Saturday watching Jennie Jackson showing her gorgeous flat-shod stallion, Champagne Watchout, in the World Grand Champion class in an arena full of Big Lick Walkers. It was heart breaking to hear the boos as she entered the ring to begin her courageous ride. Folks that care for horses, and understand what Big Lick Walkers have to endure to accomplish their distorted gait, applauded Jennie. Many in Tennesse live in ignorance or denial. A horse is simply a means to an end. As one sore-horse farrier said to me, "If a trainer asks me to chop off a horse's leg at the knee, I ask him, where's the ax?" The dark secrets of the sore-horse industry are about to be exposed to the world, and when they are, the Walking Horse will regain its rightful place as a premier breed - gentle, amiable, and easy-gaited.

We have been committed from the beginning of our breeding program to breed the natural run walk back into our walkers the way we believe they originally were meant to be...square, smooth and easy going.  We have accomplished that.  Our foals run walk from the first hours after birth and the first time under saddle barefoot....We breed them primarily as a smooth pleasure horse trained naturally and humanely but they can also show well in flatshod.

Meine Pferde sind lediglich Beschlagen, weil sie sonst die langen und häufigen Ausritte ins Gelände, über Schotter und Teerstraßen irgendwann nicht mehr tolerieren. Sie haben Standarteisen die vom Hufschmied sehr gut angepaßt werden damit sie beim übertreten nicht hängen bleiben. Sie gehen dem Trainingslevel entsprechend einen klaren Viertakt.

I am not totally familiar with the exact methods of training but have heard about "soring" ,weights, Iv'e see huge port and 10" shank bits.  We recently bought 2 lovely mares and I want to become more familiar with how I can enhance their gaiting in a normal and humane fashion.  We live in rocky, mountainous terrain.  Being somewhat new to horse ownership, I also have general questions as well.

Ich besitze eine 5-jährige Walkerstute, die im Freizeitstil geritten ist. Sie wurde von meinem Reitlehrer und mir zusammen ausgebildet und zeigt, ohne Nachhilfe durch irgendwelche tierschutzwidrige Hillfsmittel, einen klaren, sauberen und großen Walk. Ich finde, es ist Tierquälerei, die Pferde durch Manipulation so zu beinflussen, dass sie "schöner aussehen" und "besser gehen". Für mich sieht ein natürlich gerittener Walker immer tausendmal schöner aus, als einer, der durch Manipulation zu seinem Gang gezwungen wird!

I ride endurance in the US on a TWH, Sport's Infatuated Gypsy. She was the #1 Walker in AERC last year with 535 endurance (50 miles and up) miles. This year she has notched over 400 miles and is stronger than ever. Her stablemate, the Spotted Saddle Horse Bubba G, has achieved nearly 3,000 miles in less than two years and is nationally ranked in several AERC divisions. Gaited horses are rapidly gaining in popularity for endurance in the US.

Schön das es euren Verein gibt der sich dafür einsetzt das der Walker als natürlich gehendes (und nicht gangmanipuliertes Pferd) seinen Siegeszug um die Welt macht. Denn ein Walker geht seine Gänge von Natur aus - wieso braucht er dann Pad´s und umgebogenen Eisen und überlange Hufe. Ein Walker ist in erster Linie ein Pferd wie jedes andere - es braucht artgerechte Haltung und pferdefreundliche Reitweise und möchte nicht ein Showpüppchen sein. schön das sich eurer Verein dafür einsetzt das dies so bleibt und in Zukunft viele Walker Besitzer so denken. Und schön das es in eurem Verein viele Leute gibt die auch den Part Walking Horses Besitzern freundlich und aufgeschlossen gegenüberstehen.

As owners, trainers and exhibitors in the Versatility Divisions we work everyday to show the people in Shelbyville Tennessee that the Walking Horse is not just great in a railclass, but has much more to offer to horse lovers. Few breeds have a mind that can adept to a variety of training techniques and always try to please their owner.

I am a strong supporter of sound, naturally gaited Walking Horses, and I am thrilled to see that these horses are being bred and promoted in Europe.  It is so difficult to find a naturally gaited Walking Horse that performs the true flat walk and running walk because of all the changes to the gaits by using harsh methods and heavy shoes.  The natural gait needs to be preserved, and it is very important that this preservation be realized all over the world.  I agree with all of your policies as they are the same at my home!

Thank you for all your hard work in preserving the natural Walking Horse.  Please know that if you ever need help in the U.S., you have a contact in Arizona that you can rely on in me!

Tanzen und Reiten, das ist die gleiche verdammte Geschichte:  es geht um Vertrauen und Verständnis, man ist auf einander angewiesen.     Der Mann (Reiter) führt, aber er zerrt seine Dame (Pferd) nicht hinter sich her, er bietet sich ihr/ihm an, und sie/es spürt das und geht mit. Man bewegt sich in Harmonie und ihm wechselseitigen Rhythmus, man folgt einfach dem Gefühl.

Auch wir befürworten das "Gangreiten" mit möglichst wenig "manipulativen " Mitteln , sondern unterstützen die Ausbildung durch :

1.Weiterbildung der reiterlichen Fähigkeiten

2. korrekten . aufbauenden Grundausbildung des "Gangpferdes" 

 das erhält unsere Pferde gesund :-) , ist schön anzuschauen und macht Spass. :-)

 Durch  manipulativen Einsatz  fällt es den Züchtern von Gangpferden schwer, das genetische Potentiel (die natürlichen vererbbaren Fähigkeiten eines Pferdes) herauszufinden und erschwert so den Erhalt und die Zuchte eines Gangpferdes mit natürlicher, lockerer Gangveranlagung!

Der Einsatz dieser Mittel hat auch in den USA dazu geführt, dass nur noch die sehr stark passveranlagten Pferde in den "Big Lick" Klassen gewinnen konnten und so zu einer "lateralisierung" in der Zucht geführt....wollen wir das hier auch so haben??

Ausserdem ist zu bedenken, dass das amerikanischen Verständniss von Tierschutz und das deutsche in vielen Dingen "auseinanderklaffen"....siehe "Westernreitsport", was z.b. dazu geführt hat, dass  u.a.die Westernreiter bei den Weltreiterspielen in Jerez de la Frontera  auf dem Abreiteplatz mehrfach angemahnt wurden und insgesamt ein schlechtes Bild  dieser Sportart entstand.....wollen wir das auch??

 Wir selber finden die Bilder aus den  mit Eisenspangen am Huf befestigten  Pad Klassen grotesk und abstoßend ....das geht nach unsrer Erfahrung den meisten Leuten hier so, die dies sehen.

 Wir  bitten auch noch  zu bedenken: Solange wir hier noch  die Logos der stark manipulierten Walker Amerikas verwenden, wird schnell Frust bei den Besitzern  von Walkern entstehen, denn es ist einem natürlich beschlagenen und gearbeiteten Pferd nicht möglich, mit solche einer Aktion und so auf der Hinterhand  gesetzt zu laufen, wie dort gezeigt wird! Also, in dem Fall, ändert eure Logos!und zeigt natürlich gehende Walker!!!!!!!

Riding various "gaits without aids" since over 25 years now, and quite addicted to TWH's since more than 20 years, one of my reasons to support Natural Walking Horses is that the referred to artificial aids do not inherit, and we need to breed for a natural and strong four beat gait, with walking horses as well as with racking horses.

I started training Tennessee Walking Horses in December 2005 for the European Championships 2006. All 4 horses did very well at the championships. As a professional Westernhorse trainer and rider, i am excited and surprised, what those gaited horses are able to do by some natural training and gymnastics and at least a good horsemanship. Those smart horses can do all things that a westernhorses can do – but a lot more comfortable. Don´t waste their abilities and confidence by using mean methods!

I'm happy to see European breeders taking this path. I don't want to see your Walking Horse businesses go the same way they have in the United States with pads and chains. Keep it natural!

" As a manufacturer of saddles for gaited horses, I have seen all aspects of  abuse,especially to TWHs.I am so glad to see the expansion of a movement which supports the development of the natural movement of the horse, which in itself, is a thing of beauty.''
Good Luck
