The Utility/Sport discipline of the Tennessee Walking Horse includes (but is not necessarily limited to) reining, western riding, over fences, trail obstacle, obstacle driving, dressage, service horse, therapeutic riding, and field trial. The Tennessee Walking Horse was originally bred to be a utility horse capable of carrying a rider over the rolling hills of Middle Tennessee in comfort and style, plow the fields and ride on hunts. Harnessed to surreys or wagons, it took families to church and the county fair. It was a practical breed of horse. Today, the horse is no longer a necessity in a lot of cases, but rather a source of pleasure. TWHBEA offers a Versatility Program (World Series), and Service Horse program for this discipline.
