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 to read all parts of this website.

The “History and Breeds” section will tell you a great deal about me, the owner, and why only the gaited breeds are offered for sale to trail and pleasure horse riders.

The “Testimonial Letters” section should give you a good idea as to how are past customers feel about the horse or horses they have bought from Trail Horses of The West

The “Past Rides” section should help you understand what type of terrain our horses get exposed to.

You may also find a laugh in reading “Our Stories!”

I look forward to meeting you personally at Twin Pond Ranch.

Though the map's in your soul and the trail's in your mind."
