"Sugar = Sweet. Yes, Sugar is sweet. In fact, very sweet! Sugar is smooth. And Sugar is a horse anyone should be able to ride. Now Sugar is a Classic Champagne. Her color is the rarest and most exotic of the champagne colors. Yes, Sugar will turn heads but more attention and accolades will be given for her wonderful temperament. Meet and greet you anywhere! Terrific comfortable walk to go along with nice gaits above her walk. As I said, "This gal is sweet!"
"Registered as LSF Royal Authority AMHR #180527, Thor is an
eight-year-old registered red chestnut Morgan gelding that a
friend and trainer has owned for past six years. "Thor is a
cute, pleasing personality type horse with some trail
experience and some ring experience. Has great feet and has
always been barefoot…"
Above is the comment from Thor's past owner. At Trail Horses
of the West we are an exclusively gaited breed operation.
Strong conviction that the gaited breeds are the best choice
for the trail. In the case of Thor, I purchased him in a
package deal and thought I would have time to work with him
and make him an experienced trail horse. Fact is, THOTW,
Inc. is too busy to devote time to Thor and have decided to
let Thor go to someone who can spend more time with him and
use him more for what he was breed to do. It is my
understanding the his parents as well as his entire
bloodline is made up of high end show horses. No buck, rear
or run off with ya in this guy. Ready right now for arena
work and more.............Thor!"
is Neeta Answer, registered AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE
ASSOCIATION # 4285577. Her Nick Name is Juniper (thank God!)
If you want to know the full and complete history of this
mare, I've got it documented in a three ring binder! I
acquired Juniper from a very nice couple from Durango,
Colorado area. This couple came down to look for one gaited
horse and decided to purchase two after riding them so they
would have a similar match on the trail. I agreed to take
Juniper in on a trade as she certainly is a saleable horse
with many attributes. Many hours of training, neck reins,
side passes and comfortable walk. Of course she'll lope too
and cantor. Ideal starter horse, family horse, kids horse.
Trail Horses of the West seldom offers for sale anything but
the gaited breeds, so I am going to price Juniper for what I
have in her. Give Juniper a good home like she has always
had and $2,100 and she is your! You'll love her.....good
"Daisy is her name. Name implies pleasant thoughts. Well, in
the case of this Daisy mare, you can keep your pleasant
thoughts..................she is a good one indeed! For the
folks that believe every mare is marish, I won't be able to
change your mind. But, for the people that have an open mind
on the subject and can evaluate an individual horse and not
generalize, they will find an exceptionally nice, kind, sweet,
saddle horse. Besides all of the other attributes she has, ya get a ton of chrome to go with her! Wow....is this gal
beautiful! Friendly as well....catch her any where. Good
with other horses! Worth far more that what I am asking!!
Come and get her.......not a horse you'll find on every
"Smokey is half Rocky Mountain and half Tennessee Walker.
Born in the Appalachian Mountain of Eastern Kentucky, Smokey
grew up being ridden and used nearly every weekend and large
trail rides. His calmness comes from good breeding and
experience. You can put Smokey through any type of
desensitizing maneuvers you wish and he will pass with
flying colors. His color is a dark shiny brown and his head
is small and handsome. Frankly, if you can't get on this
fine gelding and ride him anywhere you want to, then you
have no business being on a horse..............he is
extremely broke and gentle. Please watch the videos and you
will see what I mean.............Smokey...a gem!"
"Simply Sophisticated is this fine mare's registered name!
We commonly call her Blue Sophie! As you can plainly see,
she is a true blue roan and one of the prettiest you will
ever lay eyes upon. Her calm gentle disposition is just as
attractive too! Blue Sophie has been a one owner horse up to
a few months ago when I bought her from the original owner.
There are no records of Simply Sophisticated having a
registered foals and it is hard to tell if she has been ever
nursed on by looking at her bottom side. But, Boy...what a
mare to have a foal out of! And, Man-O-Man, what a mare to
ride. Look at the videos and photos I have posted and you
"If you are in the market for a trail horse and particularly
a chocolate Rocky Mountain, you will know they are nearly
impossible to find. In my opinion, I believe Ricky The Rocky
is a very handsome Rocky and has a good temperament to go
with it. By looking at the photos and videos you will see a
very willing horse that will go any where ya point him and
is used to dogs being ridden on trails with him too! One of
the photos shows the neighbors coming over on their ATV's
and Ricky just standing there listening to the
conversations. I will not tell you that Ricky has seen
thousands of miles of trails yet, but I will tell you that
you can take him on these trails and safely put these miles
on him yourself. The longer Ricky is with Trail Horses of
the West, the more riding and experience he will be getting
and the more his price tag will go up. Beautiful young horse
ready to ride and looking for a loving new home! Hey Ricky,
you're so fine......You're so fine, you blow my mind!
"It is difficult to look at the photos posted of Cash's Last
Stand and not want to investigate further about this
extremely good looking gelding. Thanks for reading this
write-up about an outstanding horse. Having been fortunate
enough to have ridden in 22 State, 3 Canadian Provinces and
in Mexico, I feel comfortable in stating that 98 percent of
all trail riders, would love Cash's Last Stand! If you are
not a trail rider but simply a person who enjoys a
personable horse and a little riding around your property,
then you too would love this fella! Stand is the type of
horse you want to drink your coffee with in the morning and
your refreshment of choice in the evening. Even Amigo loves
Stand! (please see photo) So, very calm. Very laid back and
easy to ride! Registered Tennessee Walker.....small
beautiful head and stocky type body. First person to ride
him with $6,500 in their pocket or Piggy Bank, will buy him.
He is that kinda horse!"
"Miles is just perfect for the small to medium sized rider.
Ultra smooth with many speeds to choose from. But, ask him
to walk and you can count on him to walk as slow as you
wish. Beautiful black gelding that hasn't even shown any
signs of bleaching out in the summer sun yet. Easy to catch
with a business-type mind..............so willing to please.
Someone is going to be very pleased with their purchase of
"In the prime of his life...........Ringo! Yes, 7 years old
and perhaps 20 years of good riding ahead of him and his
owner. Tri-Color or some folks like to refer to as a Bay &
White. Bay and Whites, of course, come from one parent being
a Bay and one parent being spotted or if you wish, a paint
colored horse. Anyway ya look at it Ringo, he is a very
handsome fellow who rides down the trail the way you want
one to ride. Likes people and will come right up to you but
out riding, he is a no non-sense type horse. When I bought
Ringo I was told he was an unregistered Tennessee Walker.
However, I detected some Missouri Fox Trotter
characteristics in his looks and gaits. All good with
me....Tennessee Walkers and Fox Trotters are both wonderful
breeds. Stocky build, deep chest and muscled shoulders. 14.3
and everything you'll ever need! Ringo, nice sound to his
Tennessee Walking Horse/Missouri Fox Trotter-cross
"Here is a horse for the whole
family! Yes, novice riders can ride Cadillac Jack.
Easy going, calm and gentle. Catch him in a big
pasture by just walking up to him. Oh, and perhaps I
should mention he is absolutely gorgeous! As far as
I am concerned his markings couldn't be better!
Palomino color all the way around his mid-section,
with snow white mane and tail. Lets talk about his
Smoooooooooooooooth! Now Cadillac Jack does
not have high end speed, just ultra smooth saddle
gait and one gear above that. If you want one to go
screaming through the wilderness, then you should
look at another horse. But, for 98% of the
pleasure/trail horse riders, Cadillac Jack has it
all! No show horse blood in Cadillac Jack. He comes
from a family that bred horses for exactly the
purpose you and I want......pleasure and trail
riding! So, perhaps the perfect horse.......... a
"Tyson is a very nice, well-minded guy that just delivers.
No nonsense, no lip, just performance! My goodness, what
smooth comfortable gaits he has. So easy to be around and to
ride. Almost unflappable! This dandy fellow comes to Trail
Horses of the West by a long time associate who watched this
fine gelding being ridden in several big trail rides. My
associate also observed Tyson mother & father being ridden
and knew he was looking at some very special horses. Tyson
father is a registered chocolate Rocky Mountain and his
mother is an unregistered Spotted Mountain Horse and her
color was what we call a bay and white tobiano. The reason
these two horse bred and had Tyson was the result of two
owners saying we got something good here and need to a make
another one just let these two! So, come throw a leg over
Tyson and feel what a horse should feel like! If you will
ride him..... You will buy him! Tyson"
"Half & Half is this fellows full name but we just call him,
Half! Half Red and half white and that is the only thing
that is one-half about this horse. Doesn't have half the
gears.....he has got them all! Don't want to use the higher
gears? Ya don't have to. 14.1 and maybe 14.2 with shoes on,
is all Half is! Sensational smooth! Spent most of his life
with a lady who rode him everywhere. I can't think of a
place you could not take this guy and have a ball doing it!
"Dakota's Thunderstruck is his name, but we just call him
Thunder. If you look at his markings you can easily see how
he got his name. Dual registered Tennessee Walker and
Spotted Saddle Horse. I owned and sold Thunder six years ago
to a good guy and now a friend in Montana. Thunder's past
owner rode and used Thunder in the mountains mostly for big
game hunting trips. So, it is safe to say Thunder has seen
his share of mountain trails and wildlife too! Well, because
his previous owner has grandchildren now wanting to ride, I
traded some smaller horses for Thunder. Here is an
opportunity for another person to own a gem of a horse.
Friendly and kind....will meet & greet ya in any size
pasture. Thunder had the long Montana winter off and we just
began riding him when I get him back in mid-May. He is a
little pacey at the moment but with some riding and muscling
up, his smoother 4-beat gait will come back. I am pricing
him more than right, so don't hesitate. Just come and see
this guy in person! Guaranteed you'll be Thunderstruck.
I have owned and sold hundreds of chocolate Rocky Mountain horses through the years but I do not recall ever seeing a chocolate Rocky Mountain with as beautiful a head as Brooks has. In addition, I have never seen a horse with a bigger, bushy tail than Brooks has either! My-Oh-My, he is a looker! I know what you are thinking.............."looks only go so far," and I agree. However, there are few, if any, horse lovers who wouldn't be thrilled to own and ride Brooks. A bit slow to warm up to a new person but after a few sessions together and perhaps some grain or horse candy, the bound begins. Natural 4-beat gaits. Walks slow and easy when asked and that calm, nice walk comes naturally to him. Brooks was a one owner and came from a gentlemen that raised Rocky Mountains and at one time had sixteen brood mares. Brooks and his father Austin, (now sold) were this mans personal riding horses and he rode them both on several big, multi-day rides. When this gentlemen decided to retire, he got an offer from some Texas folks and sold all sixteen of his brood mares in one shot. Bad news about that deal was he gave all of the registration papers to the mares new owner and Brooks papers were in the packet! So, no registration papers in file but let me remind you.....he is a gelding!
"Here is a dandy little 4 year old mare that a long time
friend and farrier ran across a couple of years back.
Another friend bought the horse from my farrier friend and
rode her all over on trail rides. If you'll take the time to
watch the videos I have posted, you'll see a very easy going
well trained, 14.2 trail horse that has wonderful gaits and
a sensational kind and willing mind. Frankly, the history on
this sweetheart is a bit unclear but I suspect a touch of
Paso Fino in her. Anyways, smooth, calm and oh so willing.
Priced more than right and I promise you, you'll be happy,
happy, happy with Ginger!"
