Seven Oaks Stables is a world renowned small breeder of Spotted Tennessee Walking Horses and has produced some of the most "unique spots" in the world!!! Our goal has always been to breed not only for spots and beauty, but primarily for a naturally smooth long-striding, head-shaking gait, a kind-hearted temperament and conformation that allows a horse to provide the rider a pleasurable, comfortable ride. Though we have owned or raised World or World Grand Champions in every flat shod spotted division offered, our main focus has been to produce a horse that most anyone can train and/or ride....

Most experienced TWH enthusiasts are able to "spot" and appreciate a natural gait from a video or even a photo. Novice horse enthusiasts or those new to the TWH/SSH breed can often be "swayed" by particular color or spotted pattern and/or the TT factor (homozygous for the tobiano gene). Although those traits are important, unless you are buying a "pasture ornament" or "magazine cover," perhaps you should spend a little time determining the type of gait you will enjoy riding the most. Many spotted saddle horses are absolutely beautiful, yet have less than desirable gaits... How do we know??? When we first began riding TWHs/SSHs, we owned some that would do nothing but pace or trot or run as if they were race horses. Though proper horse training and rider coaching are contributing factors, the type of horse produced by our breeding program results from a unique group of "blue genes" contributed by some of the most naturally gifted/unique sires and dams in the industry.
Currently, we are offering a few of our "keeper" horses... These are horses we decided over the years to keep for our own pleasure and to incorporate into our breeding program. Being in a new "season" of life as "empty-nesters," we have decided to seek responsible, caring and loving homes for these unique SPOTS and some NOT (solid TWHs).
We also offer stud service for select mares to WGC Sir Oliver de Jose' (the ONLY tobiano stallion at stud to the public by Jose' Jose').
