"As I have always said, give me a horse with the right temperament and you will have a horse you can do anything with. Yes indeed, this Bandit Boy has the right temperament and is a calm laid back fellow. As the Eagles song lyrics goes, "Cause he's got the peaceful easy feeling... And I know he won't let you down" This is Bandit. With some lighter winter hair on his body when photos were taken, you can already see he is a golden palomino color with white mane and tail. Loves people and wants to be with ya. Besides being a pleasure/trail horse anyone would love, he'd be a great candidate as a horse for the whole family, perhaps for a husband that doesn't ride often or even a guest rider. Great smooth gaits. Put Bandit in his gaits on the trail and he'll lock right in and travel that way for hours if you wish to. We have jumped deer and elk with him several reaction what-so-ever! Another darn good gelding we are so very pleased to offer for sale. Bandit comes from a bloodline named after a stallion called Muppinstock. (spelling). My sources tell me folks from hundreds of miles around brought their mares to this Muppinstock stallion to have them be bred because of this stallion's great looks, conformation and peaceful easy feelings. Bandits got the same thing."

"This stunning gorgeous gelding is Passion. Passion is six years old and long time pasture mate to Indian Summer. Both Indian Summer and Passion came to me through a divorce situation. Passion as well as Indian Summer have been extensively trained and ridden often. Once you ride either there will be no denying that fact. Passion is suitable for a novice rider but certainly not limited to that level of rider. Very calm and gentle...friendly and kind. Walk up to him anywhere. Passion comes from a registered chocolate with white mane and tail Rocky Mountain mare and an unregistered palomino Mountain Horse stallion. However you want to slice up his breeding, you've got one heck of an animal to ride and adore. Looks, color, (copper palomino with white mane & tail) brains, temperament and wonderful gaits, all in one Hollywood Handsome package. Please watch the videos and you'll see what I mean!"

"This is Warrior MP. MP stands for Mountain Pleasure. If you have followed our website over the years we have written about the Mountain Pleasure bloodline of the Rocky/Kentucky Mountain breed. What this all boils down to is a very calm bloodline within the already calm, gentle breed of the Rocky/Kentucky Mountains. Warrior was previously owned by a gentlemen that had him for several years and used him primarily for trail riding but occasionally used Warrior for moving his cattle as well. Riding Warrior you can instantly tell he was trained and used around cattle. He is light and very responsive, neck reins or direct reins, your choice and used to ropes and whips being thrown off his back. The only reason Warrior is standing at Twin Ponds Ranch is his owner was an Auctioneer and his business has grown to one hundred auctions per year and no time to pleasure/trail ride any more. In casual conversation it was mentioned that maybe he should consider selling Warrior because of time constraints and within a few hours Trail Horses of the West's network caught wind of the possibility of Warrior being available for purchase. In less than a day, we had our top associate at Warrior's barn with saddle, camera and cash. So now you know the story. Let me tell you more about this handsome and unique gelding. Warrior's color is called a Rattlesnake Palomino. Please do not confuse his temperament to be like a Rattlesnake, I'm describing his unique color pattern which is similar to a Rattlesnake. In addition, Warrior has four near perfect white stockings and a white patch on his belly indicating he probably had a spotted colored horse somewhere in his ancestry. Warrior might be the perfect family horse. Dad, mom, the kids and the grand parents could all ride him. Now tell me, what's in your barn?"

"At present, Trail Horses Of The West has a huge selection of wonderful horses and certainly Indian Summer is one of the very best. In fact, I'd go so far as to say few people have ever seen a better horse much less thrown a leg over one. Any level of rider would love Indian Summer, from beginner to advanced rider, he'd be your boy! When Indian Summer was taken to the veterinary clinic to get new vaccinations and Coggins, the vet remarked that Indian Summer was the best looking horse he had ever seen. Dappled dark buckskin with his forelock going all the way to the tip of his nose. Handsome yes, but please watch all of the videos posted. You'll see one heck of a horse! ~~sale pending~~

"Thunder's Rag Doll is her registered name but we just call her Raggs. We should call her Doll, cuz she is one. Beautiful dark, dark bay with two back white fetlocks or short socks. Solid horse ready to be taken anywhere. Easy to catch, doesn't look at a thing. I bought her right from a good family that got to busy to ride her as often as they would like. Trail Horses of the West has owned her for 5-6 months and she has been a go-to horse when we needed a trail horse for guest customers. Good natural gaits and yes she canters as one of the videos posted clearly shows. OK, no reason to deprive yourself of a good horse over money. I've got this Doll priced more than right. Buy her, get on her and enjoy yourself! Teeth floated, all of her vaccines are current, wormed, slick, shiny, healthy and sound! Thunder's Rag Doll!"

"Zack, tall, dark and handsome. Yes, this solid colored gelding will stack right up with any other horse or horses in color, looks, temperament and ride. Gorgeous chocolate with just a faint white star on his forehead. Not yet shedded off his winter hair when photos were taken but he glistens the sunlight. Walk out to Zack's pasture and he'll have his head over the fence greeting you. Ride Zack in front, middle or back---don't matter, he is content. Trail horse supreme! Been ridden in several States. Many miles under his cinch. You want a Rocky Mountain Horse with some size to him, here ya go. Not many made like this guy!

Stylish gaits. Holds his head up while picking up his front legs....pleasing to the eye! Tony has been ridden in traffic and on big hundred horse trail rides. Every thing you want in a trail/pleasure horse. Watch for new photos to come soon. He may win a Tony Award!"

"This big handsome fella is Booger. Now Booger doesn't booger nor does Booger have boogers. If you remember the movie Christmas Vacation, you will recall that Cousin Eddie had a dog named Snot. So, the name Booger isn't quite that bad! Booger has been trail ridden his whole mature life. His former owner took him on many, many rides and you sure can tell it. Here is the reason Booger came available. Former owners son bought a Standardbred and the father and owner of Booger could no longer keep up with his Standardbred. Now this Standardbred horse is a good-minded horse and I have owned a few of them myself but most of them simply fly! Speed Racking is becoming a big deal mostly in the Southeast and Standardbreds and Standardbred/Tennessee Walker crosses are what is used for this discipline. Now don't get yourself confused about Booger not having all the gears you want for pleasure and trail riding, he most certainly does. But if you want something that will go 35 MPH in a rack or running walk, ya better be looking at something with Standardbred blood in it. I've got a very recent video taken in poor daylight of two seven-year-old boys riding Booger bareback. Happy to e-mail it to you but not good enough quality to post. After I bought Booger the former owner asked if he could take Booger on one last ride, a 50 miler! Fella said he didn't complete all 50 miles but he and Booger knocked out a big chunk of it. Size #1 shoe,15.2 1/2 hands high, and he rides every bit as big. FYI, Booger's colors are dark brown, black and white. Carry's himself so proud............classy! His name is Booger!"

On April 13th Freida had a handsome stud colt we have named Mateo! (Spanish, means gift from God) Yes, Mateo's beautiful mother is a red chestnut mare and his Daddy is a stunningly gorgeous chocolate with white mane and tail stallion named Disco Kid. Both Freida and Disco Kid are dual registered. Rocky Mountain (RMHA) and Kentucky Mountain (KMSHA) (Please see the three photos of Disco Kid below.) Now let's discuss Freida as a pleasure/trail horse. Oh hit another home run here too! She is smooth as glass and as willing as you will ever find. Got the shorter Rocky/Kentucky Mountain stride. Photos taken a month before Mateo was born. We just brushed her off, threw a saddle on her and off she went without a bit of hesitation. Gee Whiz, isn't that what ya want? I'll sell the pair now for $6,000. After stud colt is weaned, I will sell colt for $2,000 and Freida for $4,800.

"This eye catching mare is Flicka. 5 years old and stands a 15.2 hands high. She is not only a saddle horse but has been taught to drive and has pulled logs out of the hills. Rides bareback as well! Lovely personality, will greet you anywhere, any place. As the video posted clearly shows, she has wonderful gaits..............smooth! Additionally she has a great walk ta boot! No doubt her forte is being a trail horse......all the attributes needed to be so. Her 50/50 black and white color is unique and beautiful. If you like what you see you will like how she rides. Saddle horse or pull a buggy....turnin heads either way!"

"Tall, Dark and Dappled!" My Goodness, deep dark dapples and definitely Handsome! Silver Tip is his name but we mostly call him Tipper. One of my close associates watched this horse being ridden on many a trail rides and several times we tried to buy Tipper.

Friendly, friendly guy that will have his head sticking over the fence waiting for affection. Big stout boy standing nearly sixteen hands. Get ya some videos soon of his wonderful qualities and multiple gaits. If ya like great looks and have a little "show-off" in ya, this is the guy you want to be sitting on. In your pocket sorta fellow....very, very nice!"

"Over the past 14 years I have gotten maybe 6-8 horses from the gentlemen I bought Archie from. It is safe to say that this gentlemen is now a long time good friend. My friend is now 75 years old and rides several times a week, rain or shine. At most, he'll have two horses at a time and if he thinks his horse or horses are solid as a rock, AND what measures up to my standards, he'll give me a call. Archie is of course a horse my friend recently let me have and I am so pleased I now own Archie. I'll tell you Archie is friendly and about as easy to be around, and ride, as any horse I've ever owned and offered for sale. Frankly, this guy is perfect for some smaller person starting out riding or ideal for a experienced rider who wants, solid-solid, broke-broke! Don't care what the weather is outside and don't care how long it has been since ya rode him last! Just throw a leg over him and go. Ride him to the market or your neighborhood saloon....Archie don't care! Great little trail horse. Watch the videos please. It is very easy to see what I am-a-sayin!"

Easy to handle and be around, walk right up to him to catch him. Many miles on the trail for this guy. Handsome chestnut color with full bushy tail touching the ground. The General is all you need to go-a-riding and having fun."

"This beautiful little gelding is Gold. He is 14.2 hands high but frankly he rides bigger than what you might imagine. I have posted several videos and photos and I would ask you to look at each and every one of them. Gold is a very, very nice gelding that anyone who can ride just a tad, can ride and enjoy. Yes, Gold can step right out and go but he will willingly walk down on a loose rein when asked to do so. Gold was previously owned by a older man who had Gold turned out on winter pasture and he lost a little weight over the snow months. Now at Twin Ponds Ranch he is getting all the groceries he can eat and rapidly putting weight back on. Trying to find fault with this horse would be a big mistake in my opinion. Kind, gentle, willing and very smooth in several different speeds of gaiting. His color in his soon to arrive summer coat is a deep gold. Great riding partner, friend and companion all in one handsome package." ~sale pending~

" A wonderful personality is a great attribute for a human being, a dog or a horse. Quick and lasting relationships are made with any species of creature if their personality is outgoing and sincere. This Misty Blue mare is frankly, plan ol' charming! Apprehension about getting on a new horse is resolved within minutes just by this sweet mare's charisma. The other day I had a man here from Idaho with his wife who was looking for a horse for herself and I put her husband on Misty Blue so he could go on a trail ride with his wife. This man came back and said if he hadn't already had a good trail horse he would buy Misty Blue in a heartbeat! Great gaits, doesn't look at thing on the trail. Take this gal to a big social trail ride and she'll turn some heads............a beauty! If you had seen Misty Blue on my website before, your memory is correct. I took her off the site while she was recovering from having her wolf teeth pulled and teeth floated. At Trail Horses of the West, we want all of our horses for sale ready to go to a new home. Recent and current vaccines, wormers and teeth exams, all up-to-date. Misty Blue is registered in the Pleasure Saddle Horse Registry, a little known registry but none the less a registry. My guess the person who buys Misty Blue is going to want to go out trail riding on her and not miss out on riding a darn good one by having babies. I've posted several videos, bareback, gaiting and one requested video of her in a canter. She can do it all! Misty Blue would make a great starter horse or enjoyed by a skilled experienced rider and every level in between. Much more than just a pretty face!"

" Milo is a registered Rocky Mountain Horse gelding coming 5 years old in June. Milo is a stunningly handsome red chocolate with flaxen mane & tail. At 14.2 he is ideal for the small to medium sized person. He is sweet and kind with wonderful smooth gaits. We have had Milo lead groups of riders and he does well out front even though he hasn't seen all the trails in the world yet. He has never acted stupid or unsafe. Milo is ready for someone to show him off. Now is the time to get yourself a great smaller Rocky Mountain. This guy is gonna to Wow ya!"

"Trail miles and wet saddle blankets! Add to that a rider's sore butt and you've got the combination that proves over the long haul to be beneficial to both horse & rider. Leo wasn't a horse for sale when I bought him. I'd like to say my charm and personality persuaded Leo's former owner to sell him to me. Truth really came down to money. A long time friend and Leo's owner rode together 3-4 times a week. Usually for an hour or two after work and longer rides on Saturdays. I am going to post a photo of my friend, Lori Lee and his red & white mare that previously rode so often with Leo. One can look at Leo's pictures and see he is, Oh-So-Handsome, with such a stylish front end when he is in his gaits. Been riding him all over the Santa Fe National Forest now and I can tell you he is simply marvelous!"

"Appy Pie is a Walkaloosa. A Walkaloosa is a gaited horse with a fancy paint job! Our Appy Pie came from a Spotted Tennessee Walker mother and a Appaloosa father. When I was a kid, my small town had a pretty good rodeo. Many of the top cowboys of the day then rode Appaloosas and I thought the breed was so cool. Only thing I didn't like back then was the breeds short tails. Appy Pie however was blessed with his mothers long bushy tail and smooth gaits. BTW, there is a registry for this breed and Appy Pie would certainly be accepted into this Association.  and also welcomed to join the great annual trail rides of the Appaloosa Horse Club. . Pie is kind, friendly and a horse that will greet you at the gate. He is suitable for a plum beginner. (Please see photos of a first time rider on him) Good bone and standing all of 15.1. Point him in any direction and go! Wonderful pleasure and trail horse."

"I've had Sugar Bum on my website for several months but frankly I had terrible photos and videos of her. As of May 5th, 2016 I have up-dated every photo and posted five new videos. What you will see is one very nice mare. I have owned dozens of Missouri Fox Trotters but none smoother than Sugar Bum. Not only does Sugar Bum have wonderful gaits but she also lopes and of course has a great canter. Very athletic horse as you can see in one of the videos as she effortlessly goes right up a steep dirt hill and down. There isn't a place she won't go including wading into muddy water. I say I don't believe she is a plum beginners horse only for the reason she'll show a little bit of go when you first get on her. No buck, crow hopping or anything like that, just wanting to do what she was bred to do and that is to go down the trail. If I can get ya to come ride Sugar Bum on the trail for an hour, you'd buy her! Sugar Bum has heart and you don't have ta worry about her not being with you at the end of a long day in rough country. Good with other horses, easy to catch. Show up with Sugar Bum on a big social ride and she'll be one of the best horses there..............promise!"

"This little black gem is Tootsie. For someone wanting a smaller horse (barely 14.1) and a super smooth ya go! Her Daddy was a coal black registered Rocky Mountain Horse but her Mama was unregistered, so Tootsie is not registered but she is indeed a beauty and epitomizes her breed. This little gal has never acted unsafe or goofy in any way since she has been at Twin Ponds Ranch. At four years of age she would benefit greatly by riding in a group for a few trail rides and then let her learn the front position if desired. However, when we have ridden her alone she rides great and doesn't spook at a thing. Come ride her and see what I mean. I bought her right and I am going to sell her right. Wait another year and she is going to be priced a whole lot higher. $3,800 now and you got yourself a beautiful, smooth black darling!" ~~sale pending~~

"A 'been there, done that' kind of horse. Trails, pleasure rides around the neighborhood and small country fun shows are Thunder Cloud's history. Now, when I said small country fun shows, let's not confuse what I am attempting to say with being a Tennessee Walker "Show" horse. No, there is nothing in Thunder Cloud's background close to being a big lick show horse. Small fun country shows are what benefits a horse as they are judged on their gaits, manners and behavior, all of while the horse gets to see many new surroundings and activity! In several of the photos I have posted you will see a ten year old boy riding him around an outdoor ring and in another photo a five year old girl sitting on Thunder Cloud in a lead line class. My wife Peggy and I just got done hauling Thunder Cloud for two and a half days with three horse motel stops. Believe me, this guy is a dream to handle and ride. Very natural smooth gaits. A horse a beginner can ride and enjoy, and a horse a seasoned rider would love as well! Triple registered!  ~~sale pending~~
