"My wife Peggy and I are holding the lead ropes to three of the best looking chocolate Rocky and Kentucky Mountain horse we have ever seen! Not only are these three well-bred chocolates but they are full brother and sisters! Yes, the finest bloodlines coupled with outstanding conformations, small heads, cocked up ears, and brains and temperament to go with it all. And they are all Certified too! What does Certified mean? Well to be certified, a horse has to be examined by no less than three examiners of the Rocky Mountain Horse Association. A horse's gaits and conformation have to be near perfect to be certified. Adealia, Queen Isabella and Sambo Junior were bred and born in one place and were one owner's up to a few days ago. The best of care and a barn with summer time fans blowing on them is their past history. Socialized every day and it shows! As a good friend and associate said to me when he looked at these three Rockys, he told me, You won't find any finer Rocky Mountain Horses than those three!"


"Saturday Night Special is a "Hollywood Handsome" type fella. As far as I know he has never shot anyone. Doesn't have the temperament to do such a thing.........just likes to please! A little over 14.3 on the measuring stick, stout build, very smooth and athletic. Watch and listen on a couple of the videos I have posted and you'll see and hear a perfect four beat gait. Watch the rider............he ain't as much as wiggling in the saddle. Will go to the top of the mountain or be ridden in a parade. Saturday Night Special has, as you can plainly see, a mane so thick and long, you could hide a softball in it. $6,500 American Dollars and no discounts on Saturday either. He is worth every penny!"

"If you know something about the bloodlines of the Rocky/Kentucky Mountain Horse, you will know that this bloodline is as good as you'll ever find! Besides this exceptional breeding, you are looking at a gelding that is only seeking his second home. Yes, bred, born and raised on one farm in Kentucky. Private individual that still owns Junior's Sire & Dam. Socialized since birth and handled every day. Junior as well as his sisters love people! They will run across the pasture to meet you. Been shown in small country shows his whole life as well a many, many trail rides. The best temperament you will ever find and just what you would expect out of this breed & bloodline. Posted is a photo of Junior's former owner riding him one last time. I have also posted a couple of photos of my good friend and one of the most well known Rocky Mountain breeders riding Junior and loving the ride! Guaranteed, you'll love this ride as well!"

"Queen Isabella! Great name, great horse! I have written about the terrific bloodlines and the fact that Isabella and her brother and sister are all "Certified" by the RMHA. Yesterday, July 25th, a nice lady and her daughter from Tucson, AZ came and rode Isabella's sister, Adealia. One ride was all it took and a check was written. Now, do not jump to any false conclusions that sister Isabella was passed over cuz lady never even rode Isabella nor brother Junior. We just pulled out sister Adealia first and that was it! I expect the same thing will occur when someone comes and throws a leg over Queen Isabella and Junior as well! Got a photo of original owner riding Isabella in his stocking feet. He wanted one last ride. A tear in his eye and a smile on your face!"

"Simply Sophisticated is this fine mares 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 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 tell me?"

"Mingo was Daniel Boone's trusted friend in the TV series back in the late 60's and early 70's. Trusted friends are not easy to find! This horse Mingo will be someones trusted friend for sure. Mingo is a horse that could teach someone to ride and for the person that already knows how to ride, Mingo will give that person more time to relax and enjoy the scenery! If you will take some time and watch and listen to what I had to say on the videos, it won't be hard to come to a conclusion as to what type of horse Mingo is! And thanks for watchin!"

Poncho is 7yr old, and just a hair over 15 hands tall. He is very laid back and gentle, and would be considered for any level rider. He will walk along at a nice even stride on a loose rein, and goes right into his gait with just slight leg pressure. He will also bump up to one of the softest little lopes, and will stay at either speed until asked to back off. He is super sweet, and a very kind natured boy. Poncho is what I call a 100% people pleaser....he tries to do everything he can for you, even if he is not quite understanding what you are asking, he'll give it his all. He neck reins on a dime, tucks his head and backs, works off of outside leg pressure, and has excellent brakes. Very easy to ride and get along with! His color is extremely unique as he is a tri-color in roan. By tri-color I mean brown, black and white. His brown color is more of a milk chocolate in roan.............stunning!

"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!"

"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! 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 corner!"

"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 willing to please. Someone is going to be very pleased with their purchase of Miles."

"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 name!"

"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!"

" In search of a good chocolate Rocky Mountain? Search no more! Well, if you want to keep searching, go ahead but I don't know how you can find a mare with better breeding, better gaits and a head full of sense than this little girl Adealia! As broke and socialized as you can ever find! Adealia has never had a foal but she probably should.........reproducing herself is what the equine world needs. Dual registered and certified! OK, all the documentation you need is right here on this website. Feeling lucky? Oh, and don't forget about brother Sambo Junior and sister Queen Isabella...........they're good one too!"

"Here is another story on how Trail Horses of the West acquired this pretty little mare. Our long time friend and associate, who is also a farrier, shod Carly for last several years. Every time he shod her he would ask the owner if he wanted to sell her. Just a few weeks ago my farrier friend once again asked Carly's owner if he wanted to sell her. This time the reply was yes, "Just going to ride my new motorcycle." I got a phone call saying, "Got a good one coming your way, you'll like her!" Well, I didn't know what was coming my way and I certainly wasn't worried about receiving anything but the very best and that is exactly what Carly is..................the very BEST! A Spotted Mountain Horse. Bred and raised right smack dab in the middle of prime Rocky Mountain/Kentucky Mountain Horse country! Very, very gentle. Walk right up and catch her. Good with other horses, athletic, great on trails, comfortable walk and saddle gaits. Excellent shape-slimmer build. No doing the splits in the saddle on this sweet gal! Smaller person, wife's/women's horse, kid's horse..............Your Horse? A Lover!"

"People ask me all the time where I get my nice horses. My answer is I have built a network of people that are constantly on the look out for good gaited horses and here is the story how I acquired this extraordinary buckskin. During the past 15 years I have done business with some Amish folks back east. This people have a Tack Store, Farrier service, and training (both saddle & driving). I have had these folks repair saddles, make custom breast collars, ridden horses for me and have mailed them many orders for bits, girths and you name it tack supplies. Amish folks are known for their equine skills and are not about to put up with foolish behavior. They'd probably be pretty good at parenting education too! Any how, the father raised this buckskin mare and then his son bought it from his dad for a gift to his wife. The wife rode this tremendous mare for a few years but decided to give up riding. Well, guess who got the first call when the decision was made to sell her? So, now you know the rest of the story! Meets and greets you anywhere. Puts her head on your cheek and will stand with you for hours. Say whoa, and she stops. Get off and she'll just stand there. Stands to get on and off no matter how long you fumble around. (Far more patience then I have!) You've never been on a better one!"
