"The King of Dapples is what I like to
say about Equinox. 15.3 hands high chocolate with flaxen
mane and tail! Super sharp! Small handsome head too! Equinox
will go anywhere you point him and that includes deep water.
A lot of longevity in this breed and at 13 years of age he
has go another ten or twelve years of enjoyable riding left
in him. A big chocolate dappled registered Mountain horse
gelding! How often do ya find 'em like this?"
"The Tex-Mex Doc is his name. We just
call him Tex-Mex. Kind and gentle, will meet you at the gate
and put his nose right up to you for a visit. And boy does
he ride! Under saddle he is something to behold! As you can
see in the videos he is not afraid of anything. Automobiles,
ATV's, dogs running alongside, or water. The kind of horse
most everybody wants to own. Dark brown and white tobiano.
Come climb up on The Tex-Mex Doc..............you'll love
"If the photos of this guy doesn't
make you want to buy him, certainly a 20 minute ride will!
What a gentlemen he is! Tremendous four beat gait and
Trigger has seen thousands of trail miles. Standing right
here at Twin Ponds Ranch one hour north east of Santa Fe.
Bring check book...a good un!"
"Dance, is Twin Ponds Ranch's, Mane
Gal. Yes indeed, her mane measures an astonishing length of
32" long! The naming of this beautiful horse was inspired by
the 2000 CMA Song of the Year, sung by Lee Ann Womach. I
happened to be sitting in the 5th row of the Country Music
Awards when Lee Ann Womach, backed up by the Sons of the
Desert, preformed that winning song. How did an 'ol horse
trader from the Rocky Mountain west get to be sitting up
with the performers, you ask? Well, that story might better
be told around a campfire and a few cold ones! Besides good
looks and a pleasant name, Dance is an outstanding trail
horse. Viewing the videos and photos I have posted should
convince you of that! Deep water, steep hills and a whole
head full of sense make this a horse you should consider
purchasing! With a horse like Dance, you will never fear
those mountains in the distance. Never settle for the path
of least resistance. Now you have the choice to sit it out
I hope you dance........I hope you dance."
"Customers like to know about a horses past history and I
certainly understand that. So, here goes......I purchased
Gold Nugget about a year ago from a fellow who was in the
process of a divorce. He told me Gold Nugget was a horse he
and his wife owned for last four years. Since filing for
divorce, he got Gold Nugget and his former wife got the
registration papers! (Actually, he didn't say his former
wife...used another word to describe her!) Anyways, Gold
Nugget is suppose to be a registered Tennessee Walker and I
have no doubts about her breed. After owning Gold Nugget for
a couple of months, I got a phone call from a women in South
Carolina that wanted her and another palomino mare I had as
well. I received a deposit check and since I had already
planned a trip to go back east, I offered to deliver. The
check for the balance, however, bounced not once but twice.
We all have to pay our bills, so I had Gold Nugget and her
pasture mate repossessed and brought back to New Mexico.
Now, being the kind wonderful mare that Gold Nugget is, it
didn't take long for a nice lady from Corrales, New Mexico
to come along and buy Gold Nugget. Lady loved Gold Nugget
but guess what? While in South Carolina, Gold Nugget was
bred!! That was news to me until I got a phone call from my
customer in Corrales, New Mexico! Oh-Dear! Now the lady in
Corrales does not have property for a young colt. So I
traded another mare for Gold Nugget and Jesse James.
Gorgeous, smooth gaited, lovable, easy to catch, stands to
get on or off either side and experienced! I will sell her
by herself or together with Jesse James."
"Cutest little fart to place a hoof west of the Mississippi River in a hundred years! (In my opinion). Socialized? On My Goodness........he'll run across a big pasture to see you. Absolutely loves people! Well-started on halter. Goes in wash bay and horse trailers. This guy is going to be a big boy. Just born in March and look at his size. He is gaited and extremely athletic. Ready for new home and it won't be long til he'll be ready to ride. Can ya
imagine working all day and come home to a little dude like
this? Now that's living!
"All right...........Stop the music! Attention Center Stage.........Hamilton is about to show you something you don't see everyday! OK, now that I have you asking, What is the big deal? Well I'll show you by watching the videos of this superb horse. Sweet, kind, gentle and friendly..........yes indeed, I may well have your best buddy in my barn. Hamilton's color is unique . He is a chocolate roan with dark points and Boy-Oh-Boy is he smooth in several gears. Hamilton wouldn't hurt a flea but he can roll and he should be owned by someone that would enjoy his abilities. Ya don't need to be an 18 year old barrel racer or rough stock rider to safely ride Hamilton. If you are driving down the Interstate and the posted speed limit is 75 MPH and your speedometer reads 60, you probably shouldn't come try him out. I had some Amish fellows ride Hamilton for me for several weeks before I brought him out to my New Mexico Twin Ponds Ranch and they all told me this is one of the best horse they have had in for training in a many a years! Yes, Hamilton is just three and a half years old and if that scares the Bejesus out of you, that is cool with me. However, the person who is lucky enough (or smart enough) to buy Hamilton, will be getting praises and accolades about his or her horse for twenty plus years to come. This boy is gonna WOW ya!
"Tyson is a very nice well-minded guy that just delivers. No
nonsense, no lip, just performance! My goodness, what smooth
comfortable gaits he has. So easy to be around and to ride.
Almost unflappable! This dandy fellow comes to Trail Horses
of the West by a long time associate who watched this fine
gelding being ridden in several big trail rides. My
associate also observed Tyson mother & father being ridden
and knew he was looking at some very special horses. Tyson
father is a registered chocolate Rocky Mountain and his
mother is an unregistered Spotted Mountain Horse and her
color was what we call a bay and white tobiano. The reason
these two horse bred and had Tyson was the result of two
owners saying we got something good here and need to a make
another one just let these two! So, come throw a leg over
Tyson and feel what a horse should feel like! If you will
ride him..... You will buy him! Tyson"
"Here is a horse for the whole family!
Yes, novice riders can ride Cadillac Jack. Easy going, calm
and gentle. Catch him in a big pasture by just walking up to
him. Oh, and perhaps I should mention he is absolutely
gorgeous! As far as I am concerned his markings couldn't be
better! Palomino color all the way around his mid-section,
with snow white mane and tail. Lets talk about his gaits.
Smoooooooooooooooh! Now Cadillac Jack does not have high end
speed, just ultra smooth saddle gait and one gear above
that. If you want one to go screaming through the
wilderness, then you should look at another horse. But, for
98% of the pleasure/trail horse riders, Cadillac Jack has it
all! No show horse blood in Cadillac Jack. He comes from a
family that bred horses for exactly the purpose you and I
want......pleasure and trail riding! So, perhaps the perfect
horse.......... a Cadillac! (Please note: All of the horses
offered for sale at THOW, Inc. have recently been vaccinated
with either a 4- way or a 5-way, Nasal Strangles and West
Nile. In addition, horses are wormed with the best worm
medication on the market.)
"If you will take a moment to watch the videos of Roi Roy,( registered name). Moonshine, (nick name), you will see a horse you, I, and everyone else wishes they could own.
11 years old and the horse that, according to the father of the 13 year old girl riding Moonshine in the photos I have posted, "Moonshine taught my daughter how to ride!" If you don't know how to ride, Moonshine could teach you as well! Copper Palomino with looks that will take your breath away! I really don't need to say more!"
"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 I am glad I did and you may be glad I did
as well, because I am going to sell him more than right!
$1,800 and you have got yourself a handsome red chestnut
registered Morgan gelding. Thor and more!"
"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! Wow....is 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
"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
Tennessee Walking Horse/Missouri Fox Trotter-cross
"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!"
