This is Doc Holiday, our youngest trail mount. He's six years old now and loves to get out with his humans. While he still needs plenty of wet saddle pad time, he's traveled under tunnels, over bridges, through water, and picked his way through deadfall. The son of one of our beloved TWH mares, who is no longer with us, we love that her legacy lives on in Doc's eager-to-please and friendly personality. Doc is well on his way to making a fantastic trail horse.
Apache is the only non-walker on our ranch and is a been-there, done-that gentleman (sorrel gelding on the right in the water box). At 26 years young, he's tried most things and traveled thousands of trail miles. He's our go-to guy to pony youngsters and lead inexperienced mounts over and around unfamiliar 'scary' obstacles. Apache and I have weathered broken bones together, and even though he's semi-retired, we hope to have him around to help us train youngsters for years to come. Whenever inexperienced family members and friends ask to go horseback riding, even though Apache is the biggest horse we have, he's the one they ask to ride.
