Tennessee Walker horses have unusually long and flat hooves.
Tennessee Walker horses have unusually long and flat hooves. They are not fitted with horseshoes and are not trimmed. This favours their typical gaits, flat walk (accelerated pace), running walk (running pace) and canter (soft gallop).
The Tennessee Walker is a master of the walk. It resembles the tölt of the Icelandic horse.
