THE HORSE

The Walking Horse, the sole possessor of a uniquely inherited gait, a naturally-smooth, flowing 4-beat walk. Its gentleness and versatility make it an excellent family horse in the show ring and on the trails. For over a century, this horse has been walking naturally proud through American history.

THE MISSION

To improve the lives of horses and people by encouraging responsibility and sportsmanship. It promotes educational and recreational activities while preserving the unique qualities of the Walking Horse. Our rules are structured to protect the welfare of the horse and provide an equitable horse-show affiliation program in which they may be exhibited, judged, and showcased in full compliance with the Federal Horse Protection Act of 1970. Our inspectors are USDA certified and take pride in providing thorough and fair inspections. And, our judges are committed to fair judging with an understanding of the true gaits of the Walking Horse. 


NWHA promotes the general welfare of the Walking Horse and serves as an advocate for the Walking Horse against abusive and inhumane treatment.  NWHA will increase public awareness of the natural abilities of the Walking Horse along with increasing the proficiency of its’ members in all matters of horsemanship.  Lastly – NWHA will serve as a communication hub for the Walking Horse industry and other equine groups.
