"Arguably one of the most famous Tennessee Walkers of all time is, The Pusher CG a World Grand Champion and a horse not only did the show people want to breed to and own an off spring from but pleasure folks did as well. The reason a Pusher-bred horse was so much sought after was for two main reason. His wonderful temperament and conformation. Now you look at Pusher's Precious Secret and ya gotta say, Wow! I don't know how I've been so lucky to have this fine animal standing in my pasture but let me tell you it is a thrill! You don't need to know much about horses or any animal for that matter to know when you are around Pusher's Precious Secret, that he is so well trained and has seen it all. The story goes the PPS was purchased in his early years for a sum upwards of $25,000. PPS was shown in Pleasure Class shows all over Kentucky and accumulated a room full of blue ribbons. He has also ridden in dozens of parades and many, many trail rides. Now at 15 years of age his marketable worth is less but keep in mind he still has many years ahead as a wonderful pleasure horse. In fact, his riding life maybe equal to many of our customers. Buy PPS and the two of you may hold one retirement party together.

"Nothing but blue sky. That may be what others will be saying when they are introduced to this boy! Like there are no other horses around but Blue Sky! This horse we simply call Sky is just a plum dandy. If there is something he does that you wouldn't or don't like, I'd be surprised. I can tell you frankly, that he does everything we want him to do and he does it so easily. I promise you he won't give you a bit of lip. Fun to ride? Oh My Goodness! Pleasing to the eye as Sky picks up his front feet in his very stylish! Last summer the gentlemen who previously owned Sky allowed his brother to take Sky on a two week camping and trail ride in the Shawnee National Forest which is located in southern Illinois and is a very popular spot for avid trail riders. This gentlemen told me that this horse never made one mistake on his two week vacation with Sky. (Guess that answers the question, has he ever camped?) I had my associates ride Sky many times before I moved him to Twin Ponds Ranch and two days after he got here, I had my ranch staff ride him and all my staff could say to me was Sky is absolutely marvelous, rock solid and ready to go. "Ya need to ask a lot for this one boss!" is one comment you probably don't want to hear! Well, you can come and buy Sky or a number of other great horses that I currently have here at my ranch in New Mexico. Or you can do as others have done and travel all over the United States looking at horses and winding up with one that is half the horse and twice the acquisition cost, as the horses we have here for sale. As the old actor Walter Brennan used to say in one of his western movies, "No brag, just fact!"

"Sundown says, "Sometimes he thinks it a shame when he see a rider, riding in pain!" Indeed, there are a lot of riders today, riding in with sore knees, backs and butts! Truly a shame as there is no reason to be riding in pain when there is a horse like Sundown to ride. Smooth and comfortable Sundown! Although many folks will call him a buckskin and that is alright with me but he is what you call a Champagne. Those of us that have been in one of our Plain States or the Desert Southwest in the fall months, distinctly know the color at sundown. Hence this handsome guy's name. I'll tell you another great feature of this well gaited and well minded horse and that is he is big boned with stocky build. Standing only 15 hands you can put a big person on him in the morning and still be riding him at sundown! I've been doing this horse business a long, long time. Don't ask me to go out and take a video of this or that. Rather jump in your vehicle or buy a plane ticket and get here to Twin Ponds Ranch before somebody else does!" You won't be sorry!

"Pretty Boy, Pretty Boy. Gus is much more than just a Pretty Boy. He is an outstanding trail and pleasure horse that is so very easy to ride. A long time pasture mate to our McCall but even at that you can ride them out on the trail together and split-up, go separate ways and still not have a fit thrown by either horse. Very nice comfortable gaits. Gus will walk right down when ridden with a group going slow or could be put in a group that likes to move right on out..............don't matter. You can see several times in the videos posted that Gus has his ear turned back towards his rider. This of course is a sign of a horse submitting to his rider. A horse that is saying, "You are the boss, just tell me what you want!" The markings of Gus, in my opinion, are so pleasant to the eye. He'll turn heads, belief me. Size, age, gaits, temperament and looks.............high scores all around. If I had to draw one up, he'd be just the way I planned! Come ride him!"

" Eleven years old with a whole head full of sense. Experienced trail horse who was with one owner for last six years. He is a pasture mate to Gus who will be on our site shortly too! Very handsome and an excellent and stylish way of traveling. (See videos) McCall has one dark eye and one blue eye, which of course is common in in paint/spotted horses. Blue eyes or eye certainly doesn't bother me one bit, it is what is between the ears that matter and this McCall boy has the temperament ya want going down the trail. Vision is 100%. Perfect four beat gait. Easy, easy to get along with!"

"WELL HELLO DOLLY!! Yes indeed, this beautiful mare is Dolly. Eight year old Missouri Fox Trotter and a darn good one at that. As I have already said, Dolly is beautiful with her winter hair coming in with dapples. Dark dappled buckskin with the perfect black points! How can you beat that? Trail horse supreme. Please watch the videos posted of Dolly in some steep terrain. Now in a few of the videos, it may not look as steep as it really was but believe me we have put Dolly to the test. Friendly horse and willing to be someone's trusted companion. I bought her right and I am going to offer her more than right........$4,800 and you got yourself one very good and very gorgeous trail/pleasure horse!"

"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."

"This is Denniston Star.. This is a real Star, with movie star looks and a body to go with! When you ride 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. And another photo is our staff rider Joaquin on top of Star at over 9,000 feet elevation and during a five hour ride! I was personally leading this ride and I will tell you the three horses we rode that day, Star, Dolly and Tom Petty were just superb! The ride we took was far more challenging than most trail riders will ever attempt. This Star mare is absolutely solid!! 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, put her to any test you wish, you'll plain 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!"

"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!"

"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!"

"Here is the story behind Ike. A little over two years ago I posted a stunningly gorgeous black registered Tennessee Walker by the name of In The Fast Lane. A lady phoned me from Carlsbad, New Mexico and said that is her horse and could I deliver. Shortly there after her husband got into horses and purchased Ike. Now for the past two falls, In The Fast Lane, Ike and their owners have been coming to Twin Ponds Ranch for a weeks vacation and doing trail rides. At the conclusion of this year's vacation, the husband noticed I had another horse that looked very similar to In The Fast Lane and asked if he could try him out. This horse, which by the way wasn't even posted on my website, was a coal black registered Tennessee Walker too! After a couple of rides and trade was made and now Ike is for sale on my website. Background on Ike is he is a double registered Paint and Quarter Horse. I am told and I believe, at one time, a Pony Horse at the Ruidoso Race Track. Ruidoso Race Track, if you are not familiar, is the home to the 3 Million Dollar Futurity and you can be sure that they don't allow knuckleheads to pony their high dollar race horses. Ike has been ridden around large earth moving equipment, ATVs, joggers and bikes. As I previously stated he has spent two weeks riding around the mountains of my ranch and I know the previous owner didn't have a spec of trouble with him. He is a get on and go type horse.
