Tennessee walking horse

a horse, originating in a Standardbred stallion, and bred for show and pleasure; the breed is characterized by its showy fast walk which can lapse into a pacing gait unless care is taken. It is a fast, four-beat gliding walk reputed to be the most comfortable of all of the gaits for the rider. A robust, less elegant version of the american saddle horse, about 15 to 15.2 hands high, usually black or chestnut with white markings.
