Thank you for
viewing this website. Our operation and approach to
selling trail and pleasure horses
is unique, in the fact that we are right in the mountains and
can ride our horses we offer for sale, right out of the ranch
and onto hundreds of miles of trails. When our customers come
to look at our horses we use these mountain trails as our “Large”
evaluation and demonstration area! It would be easy to demonstrate
our horses in an arena or on a small track but we feel customers
needs to see a horse cross water, climb rocky steep trails as
well as ride “off trail” or bushwack through the mountains!
We encourage our customers to come and ride and evaluate their
potential new partner. The manner in which we prefer to
work with customers is on consultative bases. The majority of
our customers are referrals and repeats and Trail Horses Of
The WEST is proud to say we have now sold over a thousand gaited
pleasure horses in the last nine years. We are confident we
can find you, the customer, the perfect, safe match!”
The average age of our customers are between the ages of 45
and 70 and they desire a horse they can simply get on, ride,
and enjoy! This is the business of Trail Horses of the West!
To truly understand
the uniqueness of our operation, I would highly encourage you
