Promoting the sound and natural walking horse


Competitive Riding
So, you like to feed your competitive spirit while out on the trail – the Competitive Horse Incentive Program (CHIP) is for you.  Go to the CHIP page for further information.  It is well worth the effort.

Affiliating your show with NWHA assures the fairest judges, the top DQP’s and assurance of the finest sound and natural walking horses on a fair and level playing field.  This is defining our breed standard and what we want to develop for a better tomorrow.  For further information go to the “In the Show ring page“.

Trail Riders
The Trail Riding Incentive Program (TRIP) offers a great way to make the most of your time in the saddle.  The sure footed and soundness of the walking horse makes them a prize on any trail ride.  For further information, go to the Trail page and affiliate your trail ride or join the Trail program.  Get awarded for those hours in the saddle.

If you aren’t perfect at one thing, but very good at many things, then you need to belong to the decathlon of all competitions. This is where the true essence of the time, talent and breeding of a great Tennessee Walking Horse is tested.  The Lifetime Superior Achievement Program (LSAP) is for you.  A horse and rider may not be great at one discipline – they have to be very good in MANY disciplines.  The LSAP program is one of the greatest challenges to prove the versatility of this great breed.  For more information, go to the LSAP page.  Sign up today!
