The Tennessee Walking Horse that is used for pleasure riding requires no special type of shoes. A standard keg shoe is sufficient, if shoeing is necessary for rougher terrains. On an average, a Tennessee Walking Horse will be shod at a slightly lower angle with more natural toe than some of the western type horses. If your horse is shod when you buy it, have your local farrier check the angles of your horse's feet as soon as you get it home, before the horse loses a shoe or its foot grows beyond the desired length and angle. Keep a record of these angles and lengths for future farrier work.
