OUR BREEDING PROGRAM
At Moondance Heritage Tennessee Walking Horse Farm, we strive to choose only the best of the Heritage Tennessee Walking Horse mares for breeding. Each mare has met the high standards we set for conformation, mind, temperament, and gait. Though our horses produce beautifully colored foals, we do not breed for color - it is simply an added benefit. All of our breeding horses are trained on the ground and under saddle to show their willingness and ability before earning their spot in the breeding barn. We have videos throughout our website of every horse, four years and older, under saddle as proof of their talent and gait. If Heritage Tennessee Walking horses are to survive in a world of modern walking horses who are bred with the temperament and conformation to successfully carry pads and chains, we believe the characteristics that set our horses apart should be immediately apparent, even to the untrained observer.
Our stallion, Echo's Society Shocker, is pastured with our broodmares and remains with the herd as the foals are born. We believe the socialization between the mares, foals and stallion only benefits our horses, creating a more relaxed and contented attitude within our herd as well as producing a better socialized foal.
This attention to detail produces a horse that is easier to train, more relaxed on the trail, and a willing partner for anyone searching for a lifetime horse. Having raised and trained many horses from the Echo bloodlines, we have firsthand knowledge of the differences that set these horses apart from other Tennessee Walking Horses. These innate differences have inspired us to proudly produce Heritage Tennessee Walking Horses that carry the unique Paige's Echo bloodlines.
