Whatever the color, Tennessee Walker Horses are long and lean. Plantation owners in the American South bred the Tennessee Walker due to its pleasant gaits "Walk" and "Canter". The hoofs of Tennessee Walkers have an extremely shallow angle. Most horses of this breed are “barefoot”, i.e. they do not wear horseshoes. Shoes would only get in the way of walking.

The Tennessee Walker is a wonderful breed for riding due to its smooth gait and even temper.Not surprisingly, the Tennessee Walker horse is the state horse of Tennessee; and, as its name suggests, this horse is popular for walking. Bred in the southern part of the United States for plantation owners, this breed's unique walk is a comfortable gait for any rider. Taking it all in stride, Tennessee Walker horses are known for their good disposition and trainability. Between fifteen and seventeen hands, this horse generally weighs around one thousand pounds. The Tennessee Walker moves not only classy and elegant, it is also very soft and comfortable to ride. The reason for this are its gaits: the "Walk" and the "Running Walk" (= "race pace"). The horse makes such long steps that the rear hoof touches down well before the imprint of the front hoof. Hallmark of the Tennessee Walker is also the Canter, a slight, slow gallop. Here, the horse stretches its head far out, which is somewhat reminiscent of a rocking horse. Because of its gaits and its quiet nature, it is popular as for trail riding and as a show horse.
