Comments: Is is my imagination, or have Walking Horses changed since the 60's, 70's and 80's?  Seems to me that back then they had shorter backs and necks and bigger haunches.  Are the breeders breeding for something else now?

Comments: The owner of Walkers West Inc must be applauded for all the work and research she has put forward for all of us to see and use. The information if combined would fill several books. The Walking Horse History alone is worth the time to research and down load. Any fancier of Walkers will find all this info so very helpful. Also Breeders of Walkers if they use the breeding information she has placed here will have no excuse for a poor horse. When you research Walkers bloodlines as much as I do you can determine what color and bloodline would make the best horse.

I hope that all who read this enjoy what I have said.  The TN WALKING Horse is truly a wonderful animal to love and make part of a family.

The World Champion section was my favorite part. Your site has got to be one of the best around. Thank you for creating a site like no other and for the entertainment I get from it.


P.S. Why isn't Ebony's Mountain Man on your home page stallion line up but if I go to the link section and under stallions he is there? Please write back! I hope he hasn't passed away

I know it's asking a lot, however, if you happen to have it as an EPS or AI file, that would be special. Thank you and keep up the good photo work.

and I love your site so much that I decided to sign it once more! Your horses are
absolutely stunning! They also look like they are living in very good living
conditions. I recently purchased a walker making my herd a total of four all of
which are Walker mares. Her name is Gen's Miracle Lady and she is my moms surprise Christmas present. She is also a Versatility Champion and is by the great Pride's Generator. Her dam is an 11 time world champion and 3 time world Grand Champion, Wonder Lady's Delight. She is the COOLEST! Anyway, I love your in-depth detail on the champions and well EVERYTHING. By for now.

Comments: Hello! Last August bought a gorgeous solid black TN Walking horse, 10 year old gelding. He is 15.3 hands, with a long flowing mane and tail, and a wonderful disposition. His registered name is Mountain Right (by Mountain Raider, out of Ebony's Mountain Lad and Raider's Fancy Lady). His Dam is Lad's Mountain Mary (by Ebony's Mountain Lad and Raider's Debutante). He has Ebony's Mountain Man and Ebony Masterpiece in his blood line, as well as Sun's Raider.

Anyway, this horse (who I renamed Midnight) is a dream to ride - smooth as silk. My two boys and I love riding in the quiet meadows and scenic ridge tops here in East Tennessee.

Anyway, I always enjoy meeting other Walking horse owners and breeders.

sir, I was excited to see this page about Prides Generator. I last year purchased a off spring of Generating Threat  who is a colt of this beautiful horse. we are new to having horses, but I knew there had to be something special about this horse. she is so smart and has such a air of dignity about her.  makes me wish she was in competition also. but as I said we are new at this. I am glad I was lucky enough to get such a good horse.  thank you for the information.

Thank you for putting The Pusher C. G.'s birthday & RPM's birthday. I didn't know until I first went on your site that RPM was born on my birthday. Do you know what The Pusher C. G died of? If you do would you please tell me what he died of? Once again I like your world champions list, and your site. If you know what Dark Sprit's Rebel did would you please tell me? I love walking horses. Thank you.

Comments: I just stumbled on your Betty/Shocker tribute page and I wanted to tell you how much I loved seeing the photos. My family bought the farm across the road from Betty's in 1976 when I was eight years old. For the next ten years, I spent much of my free time hanging around her barn, exercising her horses, meeting the stream of fascinating characters who came to her barn, and enjoying knowing one of the most fascinating people I've ever met. My parents and siblings loved Betty as well and she was an always entertaining guest at our house at least once a week for years. She was a huge influence in my life.

Betty had a gift with animals that was quite simply amazing. The last time I saw her, in the late eighties, she had been forced off her beloved farm by finances and was living with her mother in her childhood home in "downtown" Bell Buckle. The few horses she still owned were boarded at various farms in the area, which broke her heart. But at home, she had a small brown bird - some sort of common Tennessee songbird she had nursed back to health - and she had taught this bird to talk and sing. The bird could talk as well as any African Grey parrot. It was astonishing.

Shocker was an astounding animal. He was huge, gorgeous, and difficult to handle. ONLY Betty could handle Shocker. No one else could even get in his stall but he adored Betty. His offspring constitute some of the most talented and beautiful flatshod Walkers in the world, but the TWH show horse community shunned Betty because of her outspoken opposition to what was then widespread soring. And most of the show world men hated her. She was loud, gorgeous, eccentric, and so talented that she could not be ignored.

She was one of the earliest proponents of TWH versatility; I remember traveling with her to watch her ride in Nashville's annual Iriquois steeplechase. She ran the steeplechase on - I think - Shocker's Stardust, a beautiful mare. She also rode her horses western, trail, and trained many of them to do dressage moves and tricks, like counting by tapping their hooves. When she rode, she would let her waist length blonde hair down from its usual severe bun and it would stream out behind her - this tiny, beautiful blonde woman on these large, flashy gaited horses was a sight not to be missed.

My family still lives in Bell Buckle, while I live in Knoxville, TN. I now ride hunter jumpers, as does my eight year old daughter. I tell her Betty Sain stories every time we drive past Betty's farm. Seeing it now makes me very sad. It had been her pride and joy and she bought it with her winnings from her Grand Championship on Shocker. Shocker is buried by the barn, with a beautiful headstone, and I hope the people who own the farm now tend his gravesite the way Betty did. She *adored* that horse.

My family visited your barn this July while we were on vacation in Texas. I just wanted to thank you and your trainer for showing us around. The tape you gave us of Powder River we watched as soon as we returned to Florida and I enjoyed it very much. Powder River is a beauty! Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to show us around and your hospitality.

Comments: Loved reading the page about Carbon Copy.  Most beautiful horse I've ever seen.  I got to see him work an exhibition at Shelbyville in 1975 or 76.  I don't know a lot about horses, but even at that age, I think he probably could've beaten most of the horses in the show.  The crowd went wild.  Copy was still perfect, a natural.

I never heard what happened to him after the Lenox family had to sell him, never knew when he died.  I grew up and still live just a few miles from the old Lenox farm.  My vet's office had a huge portrait of Carbon Copy hanging in their waiting room for years.  Wonder whatever happened to it?

Webmaster's note:  Thank you for your kind words.  You can find the birthdates of the World Champions in the lower left hand corner of the pedigrees.  Pusher's was 04/04/72 and RPM's is 05/16/94.

1969. I remember going out to Beech's Stables and finding out that Merry
Go Boy had just died the previous month, and seeing his grave. But it
really was a thrill to see Shadow and getting to pet him. He was still
pretty at 17. I've always thought he was one of the main forerunners in
the fine looking walking horses. He was beautiful. I really enjoy this
website.  Joe Scott

(He's still a real handful!)  Browsing through your site the name just caught my eye.  I guess I didn't realize who I had.  He goes back only 3 Gens directly to Midnight Sun AND Merry Go Boy.....I"m so excited I had to call all my friends, ( Funny, at this hour they weren't quite as excited as I am??? Hmmmm... I just don't get "non" horse people!!)
Anyhooo.....just thought I'd let you know you made my night.
