Horses for Sale

Please Read About our Horses in General

When you purchase a horse from us, you know that you are on a tried and true, responsive mount.  Our horses are desensitized and exposed to a wide range of activities, including road riding, trailering off property, motorcycles, festivals, night riding, beginner riding, advanced riding, opening gates, pulling horses and other items, various farm animals such as buffalo, llamas, peacocks, etc.  Our horses are responsive to western and English reigning, leg pressure and light pressure.  Beginners, please remember that horses will test you.  Even if you purchase a beginner friendly horse you need to take lessons so you understand how to handle common horse behaviors of testing their handler.  If you don’t handle these common behaviors correctly, you should expect bigger behavioral problems to follow.  We sell to approved homes only.  You must have a veterinarian and fenced property with at least one other equine on property at all times.  Our horses are UTD, adjusted by a chiropractor 3-6 times per year and wormed and tested yearly.  We only sell to homes that can give our horses an even better life than we can.  If you have bought one of our horses and you EVER need us, please call.  We care about our horses and their homes.  It’s 3am four years after you’ve bought a horse from us and you can’t tell if your horse is colicing?  Call us.  Period.

WTC (Walk, trot, canter) approved for beginners means that we use this horse to canter with beginners who follow instructions.  Child-friendly means this horse has been used hundreds or thousands of times for children under our guidance.  None of this means that a beginner can buy a horse and expect to have magical rainbow roads ahead of them.  All horses will test you.  We do not sell to beginners who do not have their horses in a training program or a trainer’s guide.

Just because they’re trail horses doesn’t mean they are dead heads.  Take a look at our reviews.  We are not known for ho-hum trail rides.  Our horses are used in a responsive riding program in which trails and obstacles are changed regularly to keep horses responsive.  It means our horses will desensitize or sensitize to a rider over the course of their session.  Our horses are responsive to leg pressure and are geared to make suitable mounts for beginner and intermediate riders who want to finish off a discipline.  They aren’t going to win you a 1D race or jump 5 feet but they will happily hold their own in a competition of your choice AND remain suitable for your friends and fail to enjoy if you put a bitless bridle on them.

Our horses are currently available for viewing at our LOCKHART, TX location.  Please call/text our main business line at 512-230-8413 to request a scheduled time.  Because of the high volume of inquiries we receive, we cannot answer or respond to all calls.  If you call and do not reach someone, please send a text.
