Diamond Judge is Registered and Certified in both the Rocky
Mountain Horse Association and the Kentucky Mountain Saddle
Horse Association. (I mistakenly said in several videos that
he was triple registered. Correction: Dual Registered) He is
a handsome jet black gelding stand a full 15 hands high. Big
boned and stocky build with the most beautiful head. Very
calm and sweet to both people and other horses. Like all of
our horses for sale he has been vaccinated with a 5-way and
Strangles shots, and wormed recently with Quest Plus.
Healthy and sound and ready for at least another ten years
of pure riding pleasure!
"Wonderful gelding we call Rambo but his registered name is
"PATCH IT UP". Very calm and gentle and an excellent trail
horse. I'll guarantee anyone they can ride him in a parade.
Just unload him and go! Not only great with people but other
horses as well. Rambo is a registered Spotted Mountain
Horse. Same bred as Rocky Mountains and Kentucky Mountain
horses, just the Spotted or the Paint registry, if you will.
If you are seriously in the market for a horse then come
ride him and you will buy him. Rambo!"
"Ain't this little gal cuter than cute? 14.1 hands tall and does a wonderful Fox Trot. Yes, she is a Missouri Fox Trotter and her color is?...............beats me! Frankly, I don't know what you call her color. Her former owner said she was a grulla with white legs but I am not convinced she is a grulla. Gorgeous indeed! Just about small enough to put under the Christmas tree. Perfect for the smaller person!
I got Patch and another
horse on my site by the name of Big Red, from a friend of
mine. My friend is in one short video riding Patch. My
friend has owned and ridden Patch since he was two years old
but offered him to me because she is going to be starting
some young horses soon and wasn't going to be devoting the
time riding Patch as much as she had in the past. I can tell
you a few things for sure, my friend is a good rider/trainer
and Patch has learned how to deliver a fun and safe ride!
Patch's gaits, as well as his walk, are extremely smooth and
comfortable. I fully realize that horses with a lot of white
on them are a little harder to keep clean, so I'll discount
his price some for that, but that is all you can really pick
about! So, here you go....experienced, super smooth and
ready to head to the trail!
"This nice big gentle guy was owned by a friend of mine who used Big Red as a horse for her husband to ride. Her husband rode so seldom that I convinced her that I should own Big Red and here he is. The lady in one of the videos I have posted was Big Reds owner and this lady is an excellent rider as well as a good trainer. Big Red is very well mannered with multiple gaits and a terrific enjoyable walk. If I was still in the outfitting business I would put Big Red in my operation in a second, as he would be ideal for large clients, gentle and capable of handling steep, rough terrain. If ya need a big horse this is a plum good one!"
Spot Check loves to roll down the trail and would be a good fit for someone who is serious about trail riding and or competitions.
Beautiful horse with a kind temperament and he wouldn't think about hurting you......he just doesn't dilly-dally! Loves people, easy to handle....good with other horses!
"Perhaps I shouldn't disclose Romeos age and let you tell me how old he is. As I have said millions of times, this old story about horses having to be seven years of age or older to be good................is pure nonsense! So, please view the videos I have posted and then guess his age! As you can hear me say on the videos, "Romeo is really some kind of horse!"
Spirits Mystery Sweet Sue is a jet black registered
Tennessee Walker mare. She is eleven years old and has been
a one owner since November 6, 2003. Her previous owner was a
prominent medical doctor that loved to ride. This doctor
owner two fine Tennessee Walkers. Now in his eighty's this
man decided one horse was enough and kept his gelding and
sold me this fine mare. Perhaps not a plum beginners horse
but a horse an intermediate rider would love. Sweet Sue does
nothing but deliver a smooth, safe ride and a serious trail
rider, endurance rider or competitive trail person would
love her for sure! Excellent breeding and getting a foal out
of her would be an additional bonus. Rides with a bit or a
Extremely naturally gaited. Loves the trail! The folks that
owned this horse before Cowboy became part of Trail Horses
of the West rode Cowboy all over the country with another
black horse whom I owned as well and have since sold. These
folks went to many, many locations to ride and therefore
Cowboy has miles on him! In my opinion they don't come any
more handsome. A full 15.1 hands tall and solid body. He'll
ride anywhere and with any size group of horses and riders.
At seven years of age he is in his prime..........ready for
his new loving home! If you can ride at all you can ride
"If you know a good horse when you see one, ya gotta be saying, Wow, after viewing videos and photos of Tips Rock! I'll guarantee you that you will be even more impressed riding and seeing him in person. Extremely calm as the video with the Skidstreer and raised bucket clearly illustrates. Tips Rock's grandfather was a well known Rocky Mountain Horse stallion that was popular for breeding because of his wonderful nature. His grandson has those trait too! Well, I shall say no more, other than I wish I had another hundred more Tips Rock's!
"This beautiful 10 year old registered Tennessee Walker is just what you ordered from Santa. It would take about 5 minutes for Smoky to bond with you and become best of friends. What a horse! Once again, I think anyone who knows horses can tell by Smoky's
mannerisms shown in the videos what a remarkable horse he
"Choco Sandae comes from a very good friend of my and a long time associate in the Rocky Mountain Horse industry. My friend built one of the finest Rocky/Kentucky Mountain Horse operations in the country and one of his first mares was Choco Sandae. Choco Sandae produced many fine foals but now it is time to let her be a trail and pleasure horse and let the younger gals produce the babies! Choco Sandae was always ridden whether she was in foal or not. An excellent saddle horse with a great gait, she is! Choco Sandae is also an affectionate horse and she loves peppermint candy. Just twist the wrapper on a piece and she'll come a looking for her treat. If you put the candy in your pocket she'll go right in your pocket to get it. As you may know, this Mountain Horse breed has a history of longevity. Another 5-8 years of pleasure riding may well be insight! A loving home, fifteen hundred dollars and Proof-of-Purchase of two bags of peppermint candy buys her!
"This Pretty Boy is Gabe. Trail Horses
of the West owned him in 2008 and sold him to a wonderful
couple from Encinitas, California that year.
Because of the husband developing a very bad back condition
is why Gabe is now up for sale again. When I originally sold
this horse his name was Chesapeake. His new owners renamed
him Angel Gabriel and hence the nick name Gabe. The owners
of this fine horse were so or are so concerned that Gabe get
another deserving home that they paid to have Gabe
transported to New Mexico from California and I am offering
Gabe for sale under consignment. I am more than willing to
share the correspondence between myself and the owners with
serious buyers. This horse had the luxury and experience of
spending his summer months in Idaho, being trail ridden in
the mountains. Gabe has "MILES" on him. As solid and
trustworthy as one can find!
Princess is a stunningly gorgeous mare I owned several years ago and now have her back for sale again. (Lucky me, Lucky you!) I have some long history with this great mare......one of the photos I have posted is of me riding Princess in the mountains above Colorado Springs before I even moved to New Mexico and I have been in New Mexico now for almost seven years! A good friend and client from Placitas, NM has since owned Princess for several years and because of some birthday issues, she traded me Princess for shorter Goldenrod. Princess has had a wonderful home and is well cared for. She has been conditioned and ridden barefoot in the rocky terrain of Sandia Peak. Having the luxury of riding right out of my friends home, Princess didn't need to be hauled in a trailer anywhere and hasn't been in a trailer for over three years. When I picked
up Princess and her pasture mate, Tex, neither one had been in a trailer for over three years. To my delight both horses jumped right into my trailer without a moment's hesitation! This should tell you a great deal about her temperament. Walk right up to her anywhere! Princess is a sweetheart as her name implies and can be ridden by anyone.
This fellow is Mello! Mello is capable of a "one horse" parade! Who wouldn't stop and look at this guy? Dark, dark palomino with some dapples ta boot. Tall handsome and extremely calm and gentle..............hence his name. Will get ya more photos and videos in a few days. In the mean time I've got four of the most handsome palominos you have ever laid your eyes on. Come and ride 'em!
No guess work needed to figure out how this pretty gal got her name. Cat Tracks are all over her body
and she has one blue eye! At ten years of age Cat Tracks has seen and done it all! When we ride her out the gates of our ranch she puts on her business cap and away ya go for a most enjoyable ride. She ain't
looking for nothing as she goes down the trail. Just
measures 14.2 and has the stocky build that is capable of
carrying a big person if needed. As you can see from the
videos posted, Cat Tracks can walk right out in a nice
little saddle/trail gait or walk right down at a speed
conducive to trail riding with slower walking breeds. Nice,
nice little horse well worth the $$$$$$$!
Personally, I have never seen one like him. His name is Hawk and Hawk is a very well-bred and registered Rocky Mountain Horse gelding. His D.O.B. is July 5, 2012. Not yet under saddle but oh so well socialized and halter broke. Already standing over 15.1 hands high, Hawk will easily grow to 15.3 and that my friends is a big Rocky. For just a two years of age and coming three, Hawk is broad in the shoulder with good fleshy body. But besides that, Hawk has the kindest of eye and will be the talk of the town no matter where he goes. Chocolate roan is Hawk's color with dark legs and head with a flaxen mane and tail..............absolutely stunning! I'll tell you what, this unique gelding will be..........SPECIAL! Mark it down, Hawk will be a saddle horse everyone wishes they owned. Buy him now at $3,000 but in another year and a half, he'll sell for $8,000!
This pretty, pretty filly is
Tiny Dancer. Tiny Dancer was born July 15, 2012 right here in the Land of Enchantment! Tiny Dancer is registered in the Spotted Mountain Horse Association which is a subsidiary of the Rocky Mountain Horse Association but for the spotted or paint colors of the Mountain Horse breed. Currently, Tiny Dancer measures 14.1 hands tall and her mother and sister were 14.3 so that would be a good guess as to her adult height may end up at.
Tiny Dancer is only 5-6 months away from being broke to saddle and there is no doubt in my mind that she'll be another calm, gentle saddle horse like her breed is known for. A potential buyer should also consider down the road
Tiny Dancer being bred and producing some babies. The demand for good smooth gaited horses is increasing daily and I can promise you there will be buyers for more like Tiny Dancer.
Take a close look at the photos please. Tiny Dancer's markings are extraordinary
in my opinion with her mane and tail becoming blond as it
grows out. Beautiful Filly! I'll sell her right now for a
small sum of $1,200 but as time goes on and TD get's started
under saddle her price will certainly go up. Someone could
own this horse for the next 25 years and have a whole bunch
of fun doing it!
In the past, when I have posted a strikingly handsome horse like Reno, I'll have someone respond back and say, "I don't buy color!" Well folks, I am not just selling color. What I am offering for sale is a sweet horse that will meet and greet you at the gate and accept your affection for as long as you wish to give it. If you think Reno's handsome color deprives you from the benefit of a smooth comfortable gait..........you are dead wrong! An experienced gaited horse person can look at the photographs I have posted and see Reno's back hoof hitting the ground with the front hoof about the touch the ground in the exact delayed time to make the perfect smooth gait. In my posted video you will see my hired man with no experience in gaited horses prior to coming to work for THOTW, finding the right groove and gaiting off in ultra smooth fashion! Additionally, I have posted several other videos. Two of the videos show Reno crossing a arroyo and another shows him coming up a very steep and rocky trail with dogs on both sides of him. Reno is 15 hands tall but I wouldn't describe him as a big horse at all. He is of the slimmer built but don't let that make you think his build will effect his endurance. First to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon were of the slimmer build...... football type bodies didn't finish! Four years of age and ready for any any situation you care to put him in. Reno is also ready to enjoy your morning coffee or drink of choice at the end of the day with you. If history matters to you, his mother is owned by a friend and farrier. She was a sorrel with white mane and tail. Reno's grandfather is Tacketts Trigger who fathered many Rocky Mountain and Kentucky Mountain palominos over the last 10-12 years. If you need papers on Reno you can probably get them but he is a gelding!
