"This is all you need! Yes, if you are looking for a kind, gentle, lovable horse that will do whatever you ask of him, then Shelton is all you need. No white mane & tail. No spots or dapples. Just a nice solid horse that you could turn out in a Wilderness Area and you could walk right out and catch him. More than likely he wouldn't be far away as Shelton loves people. An old friend of mine and professional horse trainer supreme, used to say, he just wants a horse that says, "Show me the way boss, just show me the way!" Well, Shelton is a horse like that......willing to do whatever ya ask. Shelton would make an ideal husband horse, family horse. Heck, the whole family could climb right on and he'd never give a thought to what was being asked of him to do. His color is mostly black or a black Bay. His winter coat is bleached out a bit but he is a dark, dark Bay. Big hoofs but yet to have had this guy in my old outfitting business. Clients would have loved him. So, no big flashy colors and no big price tag. As I said, Shelton is all ya need!

Me Two is a 2009 model Tennessee Walker. Me Two is registered with an incredible pedigree. There are six World Grand Champions on his Registration Certificate and three World Champions. His sire is WGC The Whole Nine Yards. His Grandfather was WGC Gen's Armed and Dangerous. Coincidentally, I had an ex-girlfriend by the same name! Any who, Me Two looks just like his famous Grandfather. Me Two was born and breed in Georgia to lady DVM and sold as a yearling to a man in West Virginia. Coming from such successful show bloodlines, it was obvious that Me Two would try to follow his ancestors but quickly it was apparent that Me Two didn't have the big engine to be a show horse and was much better suited to the life of a calm, good natured trail and pleasure horse, which he definitely is today. Me Two is the most lovable horse you have ever been around. Loves people and loves other horses and they love him. Playful fellow, who will follow you anywhere! The other day I had Me Two in a stall in the barn giving him some grain and Peggy went into his stall and they were loving on each other. Peggy came out of his stall and said, "I really like that horse." I said, "Me Two!"

"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. Would bond up well to be a rider's best friend. Has great feet and has always been barefoot…"

Above are the comments 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 am making an exception as he has so many qualities and the Morgan breed is a good one. Registered mind you, Morgan. I am attaching a couple of videos of Thor. One video is of Thor being ridden for the first time this Spring after a three month lay-off from a long, cold Ohio winter. Watch the video and ask yourself how many horses would be this calm and gentle after not being ridden for three months! My goodness, here is a good one for sure and priced way under what a GOOD horse should sell for. Thor and More!

" I have posted several videos for viewers to see the calm, sweet and charming personality/temperament of this fine gelding. I rate Austin as a beginners horse but his ability is not limited to just beginners. As you will hear me say on several of the videos, Austin would not be for a person wanting to go flying down the trail. Austin has a nice smooth trail gait and a walk that is like sitting in your easy chair. Austin will walk in front, behind or in the middle. He has been trailered to many large organized trail rides, so there is little, if nothing, he has not seen! I don't care where you take this fine horse to ride, he will not look at a single object. You can turn Austin out in the largest of areas and walk right up to him, put a halter on him and away ya go. Great ground manners...excellent horse with fifteen more years of good riding in him. Please note: Austin is or was registered in the Rocky Mountain Horse Association. Austin previous owner had as many as forty registered Rockies and decided to retire and sold all of his brood mares to one party in Texas and mistakenly gave the whole lot of registration papers to the new Texas owner. So, Austin's papers are gone but there is no mistaking his breeding. He is a gelding and a darn good one!"

"OK, folks like chocolates with flaxen and white mane and tails and it is most understandable why they do. However, finding these type of horses is, at best, a difficult task. Breeders in the last ten years have cut back or have gotten out of the business of producing foals all together. This is true in most breeds. Today the supply of mature horses with experience and training is way less than eight to ten years ago. Today I am please to say, Trail Horses of the West has several mature chocolate horses for sale, and Brooks and his father, Austin, are two of them. Yes, I have Brooks' father, that was gelded several years ago for sale as well. Both Austin and his son, Brooks, were ridden on many, many trails rides and know the drill. A couple of the big rides this father and son were on are Buffalo River Ride in Tennessee and the Booneville Annual Trail Ride in Kentucky. The former owner of Austin and Brooks at one time had forty chocolate mares and geldings and Austin and Brooks were two of the last horses he kept before retiring and getting out of horses all together. So, here are the stats on big bushy-tailed Brooks.

Bryce is a horse that if you can climb up his 15.1 hand high body, you can ride him. As easy a going horse as you will find on this earth. If you view the attached video, you will see my associate riding and gaiting Bryce with JUST a lead rope around his chest! Nothing in his mouth what-so-ever! You can also take him where ever you wish to go with just leg pressure. Full blooded Rocky Mountain that was registered but papers are lost. The photos taken were when the weather was cold and we were unable to wash Bryce up. Trust me.....this boy will knock your eyes out!! Stunning!

"From the heart of Rocky/Kentucky Mountain Horse country comes Hustler. This coming five year old is is a trail horse supreme. Handsome, handsome fellow who was started at a little over two years of age by a small lady with patience and a gentle hand. Hustler has been overnight camping on several occasions and has had beginners ride him. Can gait right out if asked to go but is happy to lead, ride in middle or behind. A real find in this time of high demand and low supply of good solid trail horses."

"Cash Me Out is a genuine Dream Horse. His gorgeous looks speak for himself. His temperament, which is a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10 and 1 being the best, maybe evident in some of the videos I have posted. On one video, I have Amigo, my amazing Yellow Labrador Retrieve leading Cash Me Out around by a lead rope. I apologize for the poor camera work but I think the video makes it's point. Watch closely and you will see the calm nature in the eyes of Cash. The Bologna that horses need to be much older to be calm, gentle and safe is just that, Bologna! I am only asking $7,500 for Cash and he is well worth that asking price. But, if you can find one anywhere near as nice as Cash and can get him to this neck of the woods for that price, ya need to jump on it. "Cash me Out," is what you should be saying to your banker! "I'm a needin my money to go buy this horse!"

"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!

"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!"

"Black Foot would be ideal for the rider who enjoys the beauty of nature. He rides on a loose rein and has a comfortable walk as well as several gaits. He'll ride with a slow group or a fast moving group. Put him out with other horses and he minds his own business. Black Foot spent months working with a professional trainer that liked to work horses on obstacles. Nice confidence builder type horse the whole family could ride. Solid 14.3 and easy-a-goin as he can be!"

" I sold Honey back in September of 2009 to a gentlemen who was just getting into riding. His wife also bought a mare from me which she still has and rides often. The gentlemen only bought Honey to be able to ride with his wife but recently he lost interest and decided he'd swap out his horse and saddle for a 4-wheeler. And yes, I not only bought Honey back but his saddle I had sold him too! So, if ya run the numbers, I sold Honey to a plum beginner when she was only three years old. Does that tell you the calm temperament this gal has? On the scale of 1 to 10 and 1 being the calmest, Honey is a definite 1! Not only does Honey get along with people, she additionally gets along with other horses too. I have put her in a pasture with an alpha mare and Honey just stood right up to her and said, "No, you are not going to intimidate me!" The photos and videos I have posted at moment, were taken on the very first ride since Honey returned to Twin Ponds Ranch. She was dirty during this filming but as you can see she is still very pretty. BTW, she is registered Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse Association. Her registered name is MCF's Faith. Well, there ya have it. Honey is indeed a Honey!"

Gold Canyon

"I have a sign in my barn that says, "If you are lucky enough to live in the mountains, you are lucky enough!" Well, I think it would be just as appropriate to say the same thing about Gold Canyon. "If you are lucky enough to own a horse like Gold Canyon, you are lucky enough!" Yes, this guy is tall, 15.3 on the measuring stick and yes, he is extremely smooth. Goes down the trail like he has been there before. Meets and greets you at the gate. Loves affection. Great with other horses and, my goodness, is he handsome! Gold Canyon.....when you ride him ya wanna take the long way home!"
