The Tennessee Walking Horse is flashy, smooth, and as Tennessean as a Moon Pie! This breed is famed for its fluid movement and fourth gait – a running walk.
Originally bred in the Southern United States, this breed was meant for driving and farm work, but above all to be a comfortable and sure-footed riding horse. Today’s Tennessee Walkers are excellent pleasure, trail, and endurance horses and can also be found at breed shows. These horses typically have strong backs, long, sloping shoulders and hips, and strong hind legs.
The feuding Winterfells and Buttergoods both claim to have first brought the breed to the shores of Jorvik, and have argued about this for many years. One thing the families agree on, however, is that the Tennessee Walkers on Jorvik are never subjected to harmful practices.
