History of the Tennessee walking horse [edit]

The Tennessee walking horse was developed in the 18th century by farmers in Tennessee who needed a good utility horse. The bloodline for the breed includes Thoroughbreds, Morgans, Standardbreds, Saddlebreds, Canadian Packers and Narragansett. The Tennessee walking horse, sometimes known as sometimes called the Kentucky Saddler, was particularly popular with plantation owners because it was extremely comfortable to ride. Today there are nearly 300,000 registered horses, making the Tennessee walking horse the fastest growing of any horse breed in America.
