"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!"
"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!"
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! 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
"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 mind..............so willing to please.
Someone is going to be very pleased with their purchase of
"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!"
" 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
"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!"
