The Tennessee Heritage Ranch is a unique ranch, established for breeding Tennessee Walking Horses. The ranch is located in the Sharon region of Israel. The founder’s vision was to establish a habitat in Israel for the Tennessee Heritage horses, that provide the most amazing combination of a pleasure and working horse .
The origin of these unique horses is ancient, and rare blood lines were preserved in private farms in the USA. Farmers in the States have been raising the Heritage of Tennessee for more than a century.
The Tennessee Heritage horses are athletic, strong and stable, sure-footed with a calm and pleasant character. They present a wide variety of gaits and a particularly stunning, regal look.The horses we breed on the ranch are gentle and highly intelligent, demonstrating great willingness and dedication for being ridden safely in all gaits.
The ranch’s size is around 7 acres and ti is managed by a skillful, experienced, carefully selected team, that have been raising and training hundreds of horses. In addition, the ranch’s personnel are skilled in matching the most suitable horse for the specific needs of the rider.
The horses are born, raised, groomed and are lovingly taken care of on the ranch for three years. We invest heavily in daily care-taking, training, vaccinating and setting optimal conditions for raising the horses as companion animals that have confidence in human beings, rather than being raised as herd animals.
In addition, the ranch offers personal bonding rides. These include about 10 individual sessions, in which the rider is accompanied by an experienced trainer throughout the entire process, even if the rider has no prior experience or knowledge in riding a horse. The minimum age required to start riding is 8 years.
The origins of the Tennessee Heritage horses are at the end of the 19th century. A combination of breeds that led to a strong, beautiful and gentle horse, that was used in many different ways.
Today, it is very important to discern between the Tennessee breeds:
The origin of the heritage horses of Tennessee is ancient, special and has rare blood lines. They are raised in our habitat, trained by us and offered for sale.
There are also modern horses, displayed on the grounds.
In the 1960s, the Biglick shows began to gain momentum, and due to the good nature of the breed, the horses were trained intensively as Biglick horses, using aggressive force on them, which intentionally caused them injuries. The show horses look different, behave differently, and most of them do not ride outside closed arenas and are not fit for hacking and trail riding.
That is why when buying a Tennessee horse, in order to get the best value for one’s money, it is crucial to know which bloodlines it has, and one should not purchase by mistake a show horse that cannot ride in the fields and cannot be used for the purpose it was purchased. Trail riding is sometimes challenging, sometimes enjoyable, but always a safe ride!
