Episode 76: The Big Lick (10.5.2017)

The Tennessee Walking Horse has a natural gait that’s famously smooth. And, if trained in a certain way, it can perform a walk that’s even more spectacular. But, there’s a secret behind how, exactly, these horses are trained to do the crowd-pleasing step they’re celebrated for. Mary Helen Montgomery brings us the story.
