TWHBEA Congratulates 2012 Master Breeder Burt Hunter


Burt Hunter, along with his father Bright Hunter, was one of the men that founded our great breed. Bright was a longtime breeder of plantation horses and his son followed in his footsteps. The family bred, raised and owned Hunter’s Allen F-10, one of the foundation sires of the Tennessee Walking Horse breed and one of the most influential early stallions in our breed’s history. Hunter’s Allen F-10 sired such early notables as Nell, Bright Allen, Last Chance, Lady Sensation, Brooks Allen and Dements Allen. As he grew up, Burt’s love for his family’s smooth riding horses only increased and it was a conversation between him and former Tennessee Governor Jim Nance McCord that resulted in the idea to create the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ Association of America. That conversation was held on the corner of the public square in Lewisburg, Tennessee, the hometown for both men. Burt Hunter served as the Association’s first President. His esteem for the Tennessee Walking Horse continued throughout his life and it was one of the legacies he left to his children.
