I don't care what discipline or breed of horses you may be around with Star, you will get compliments galore! A real looker and a fantastic go-down-the-trail with no drama mare. A couple of photos are of a guest riding Star around the ranch. If ya can climb up in the saddle you can ride her too! A big stout Rocky Mountain mare with glowing flaxen mane and tail! Come to Twin Ponds Ranch and ride her, you'll love her!"

"Well, if you are the type of person who would be thrilled to death about receiving a puppy, kitten or stuffed Teddy Bear as a surprised present, then you would be thrilled owning and riding Shaker. A compassionate and loving animal person could not resist this absolutely adorable gelding. He is simply the type of horse you want to wrap your arms around and say, "hallelujah, you are mine!" Beautiful and smooth gaits. Will go anywhere you wish to go and that includes traffic and congested places. Got videos and photos of water crossings, climbing hills and going down hills. There isn't any place a horse can physically go that Shaker won't take ya! Whole head full of sense and he comes with a well-marked chestnut and white tobiano body." A hair under fifteen hands, he is just right for the majority of riders. Pass on him if you will but someone is going to get a life long gift!"

"This guy has the right name, "Stroker!" His daddy's name is Mountain Top Power Stroke. Yes, this guy has a stroke and boy, is he fun to ride! I posted a couple of videos of Stroker doing a running walk and no doubt some viewer's will say, "That's too fast for me!" Well, my answer is you don't need to go that fast but if ya do, I am showing you he can! Beside this wonderful smooth running walk, Stroker has several slower gears and all of them smooth. He is a terrific trail horse with many miles under his blanket. Standing just 15 hands, Stroker can carry a pretty good sized person. Good bone and stocky build. Very responsive. Ask him to stop and he'll throw the brakes on and then turn his ears back waiting for the next command. Put and good mountain trail ride on this fellow and you will be saying, "This is one heck of an animal!"

"I probably don't need to say more than look at the photos and watch the videos. This Tom Petty is the complete deal. I never asked him if he could sing and play a guitar but I wouldn't be surprised if he could as he can do everything else. Just the sweetest guy to be around. He should be in the next Rose Bowl Parade! You don't need to come here and ride Tom Petty. I'll put him on a transport and you'll just plain love him!"

" Perhaps one of the best songs ever written and preformed by the legendary Bob Seger is "Like A Rock". When I think of Gambler the modified "Like A Rock" lyrics come into my head.
Like a rock, he was strong as he could be
Like a rock, nothin', ever got to ​h​e
Like a rock, ​surely something to see
Like a rock
​If you have followed our website or spoken to me in person, you will know that I have often said if you have the right temperament in a horse, you pretty much have it all. There is no doubt Gambler has that wonderful temperament.​ ​The other day I pulled our ATV feed wagon into the larger turn-out pen and before I could close the gate Gambler walked out and started grazing on the fresh green grass outside. After I spread the hay and drove back out, I walked up to Gambler, wrapped my arms around his neck and lead him back into his turn out pen. Now 9 out of 10 horses would have taken advantage of their freedom and green grass and been one heck of a challenge to catch. Isn't it enjoyable to be around another person, a dog or a horse that is just easy to get along with? No stress, No Drama! Now Gambler is not a lit-up, chromed-up or glittery horse. Got lots of those horses to show you too, but ya got to pay a lot more for them as well. As far as riding, and going out and having fun on horseback, Gambler is all you need. Need a guest horse....Gambler would be perfect! Dads horse to go hunting with, Mon's horse to go riding with friends, or a horse kids can learn to ride on and be as safe as you can get........ya got him right here...........Gambler! Bareback or with saddle, Gambler is cool with it all!"

"Now this horse will meet and exceed the requirements of about 95% of the horse buying public. Right size...14.3. Right age, 8. Right color, black and white tobiano. Right temperament, calm, gentle and sweet. Believe me, he gaits every step. In photos and videos I have a new lady riding for me as well as Dea and she is just getting used to riding gaited horses. I'll up-date or add a few more videos of this fine animal but be rest assured, he is a heck of a gelding. Extremely unique markings. (See photo of his forehead) Got a bunch of good horses here at Twin Pond Ranch and Poncho is certainly one of them. Come ride him, you'll love him!"

"Rawls spent most of his life on a cattle ranch in Arkansas. He has been on many a trail and pleasure rides but for the biggest part of his life he was a working cattle or ranch horse. Now some misinformed individuals think the modern day Quarter Horse breed is the only horse that will work cattle effectively. In Australia, the Australian Stock Horse is the breed of choice. In South America, Peruvian Paso and Paso Finos are the cattle/ranch horses used. In the State of Missouri which ranks fifth in cattle production, a Fox Trotter is commonly used for working cattle, as they are in the State of Arkansas as well. Indeed, one breed doesn't own the cattle horse world! Whether you are on the back of a horse making a living, as I did for many years, or out trail/pleasure riding and you turn an eye to the sky and see a storm coming, it sure is nice to be on a horse like Rawls that can get you back to trail head or home, quickly and comfortably. I have always thought a bay-colored horse is handsome and a look of class! You need to come ride Rawls and put some more class in your barn!"

"If you are in the market for a large dog, this Colada mare can fill your bill! Friendly, Oh My Gosh! The other day I had her in a pasture and I was on my riding mower and she was running along side me as I mowed. Just wanted to be near me. (I believe the Carpenters had a hit song Colada would love. Close to you.) After I brought Colada to Twin Ponds Ranch, I didn't say anything to my staff about her. Just asked them to take Colada out for a ride. Both came back super impressed and said, "That is a eight thousand dollar horse plus!" Yes, Colada has had her fourth birthday but not her fifth. You can make an issue about her age but you would thinks she is three times her age if you rode her. She walks right into water and through mud puddles without a blink of an eye! Tremendous gaits and stylish doing them. Her color is so unique and a color I have never owned in a horse before. She is simply beautiful! Her breeding is Rocky Mountain but I understand her breeder forgot to send in the Breeding Certificate and therefore the association said, no papers. If you want the ride of your life and your best buddy in one package, ya got her right here!"

"One handsome Dude! Yes, this knock your eyes out gelding, is Dupree. He is a 9 year old Spotted Saddle Horse and a darn good one at that. Standing nearly 15.2 hands high with a stocky or broad build, he is just about right for anyone. His gaits are magnificent and his temperament is like a puppy dog! Put him in his trail gait and he'll lock into it and stay right there for ya. Water, traffic, rough terrain, it don't make no difference....he goes. I think I have posted enough photos and videos for any person that knows anything about a horse is going to say, "Oh MY!."

"I am going to price this fine mare way under what she is worth and someone is going to get a heck of a horse at a heck of a price.

Calm, gentle and likes people. I have posted two videos of Generating Hi Beams ultra smooth gaits. Like sitting in your living room easy chair!

Where in Heaven's name did I find this handsome gelding, you might be asking? Well, I'll tell you, from the owner who breed and raised Dusty in southern Mississippi. Dusty was born on this large farm/ranch and then started and finished by a well known Missouri Fox Trotter trainer in Alabama. Upon his finishing, he was returned to his home in Mississippi and then trail ridden and even taken to a few shows. Dusty has on several occasions ridden in the multi day trail rides near Eminence, Missouri. I personally went to Mississippi to ride and evaluate this fine horse and then trailered him back to New Mexico, stopping two nights in horse motels. Let me tell you this guy handles nice! The Grey in his name of course comes from having the famous blood in him of Zane Grey. Registered Missouri Fox Trotter # 05-87406. Anyone can ride him..............come try him out!"

"No need to ask, he's a smooth operator. Smooth Operator is seven years old and stands a bit taller that 15 hands. He is friendly,
people loving and a greeter at the pasture gate. Great fun to ride and if anything jumps out at him on the trail, he just stops and
looks at it. Posted are a whole series of photos and videos that should tell you pretty much everything you need to schedule an
appointment and come ride him. You won't be disappointed."
