About American Walking Pony HorsesAbout American Walking Pony Horses



American Walking Ponies were developed primarily as a showrnhorse for gaited competition. Although they have three unique gaits, they arernable to compete in seven.

rnrnThey are essentially a cross between the Tennessee WalkingrnHorse and the Welsh Pony. As a result of its Welsh pony heritage, they alsornmake a good light hunter.

American Walking ponies are a relatively large pony-type (14rnhands high). They have a a clean, smallish head on a well arched and muscledrnneck. Their back is short, their shoulders are slightly sloped, and their hipsrnare well muscled. rnrn 

rnrnThe three gaits unique to the American Walking Pony are thernPleasure Walk, the Merry Walk, and the canter. Both the Pleasure Walk and thernMerry Walk are four-beat gaits that are faster than a regular walk (the MerryrnWalk being the faster of the two), and are described as being light and free.

The American Walking Pony Registry, established in 1968,rnregulates the breed by allowing only horses that have been registered with bothrnthe Walking Horse and Welsh Pony registries (or with some cross between therntwo) to be made available for stud.
