The official horse of Alabama is the Racking Horse, which is similar to the Tennessee Walker Horse but differs in how it trots.  A Racking Horse is offered referred to as a "Single Foot" due to only one foot striking the ground at a time.  Generally, the Racking Horse is great for beginning riders due to it's comfortable ride and and it's friendliness to humans.  The origins of the Racking Horse date back to the beginning of our country, and grew very popular in the south on plantations due to the horse being able to be ridden for hours comfortably.
