We have some new horses being tested. Here is the first of our new horses. 21. Watch for the rest soon.
This nice palomino paint horse is a gem. He has been worked in a feedlot. He is safe, kind and really trained. He will open gates, stand without being tied, great with the kids, and will go anywhere, do anything you ask of him. His gentle manner and willing mind make him a great candidate for any rider that wants a good safe ride on a pretty horse with "lots of chrome". Our riders love him as he is willing yet safe and does not fight or argue with his rider. He loves the scary woods and is a generally all around nice animal. He stands 15 hands and is 8 years old.
This is the nicest horse for anyone to ride. Sparky is an colorful Paint horse. He stands 15 hands and is 11 years old. This horse has the most amazing attitude. He just loves to please and do his job. He went yesterday with Clipper to a new place to test away from home. Both our students , Brook and Avery rode them both through all the tests you can see in the pictures. If you want a great at home horse for the family, or a wonderful trail riding horse, see him. He is nice! (sale pending)

Sale pending means that the horse has been sold and is out for the 7 day period. Please see our guarantee.
We are so proud of our new owners and the good horses they have. These safe guys are the backbone of the industry, hard to find and deserve a good home with loving families. We are happy to say that all our "guys" are well placed and that makes our job fun and much easier. Thank you all.
We are especially proud of our horses that are going out of state as the
trust and our references are giving our horses a great opportunity to serve in
other states as well as here in Texas.

Our Designer horses!
We would like to ask our prospective buyers to give us a good description and outline of the horses you are looking for. We would like to encourage you to email us, or call us telling us exactly what you are looking for in a horse. There are eight criteria we look at when we determine if we can "match" you to a horse. 1. Safety. 2. The need. What do you want to do with the horse? Trail ride, ranch ride, versatility play days etc. 3. What is your skill level? 4. Where are you keeping the horse? This allows us to determine the suitability of our horses to YOUR environment. 5. Are you going to haul your horses to ride? Obviously easy loading is a MUST. 6. What are the pasture mates? 7. Who is going to ride the horse? Children, family or single rider need is a question we ask. WHEN WE DETERMINE WHAT KIND OF PARTNER YOU NEED, THEN WE CAN SUITABILITY FIND YOU A MATCH. 8. What price range are you looking in ?
We ask you to come to Tonkawood for an evaluation ride so we can see what kind of partner you want and need that way with high gas prices you do not waste a trip for a horse and we can make a good match for you. Please note that we are not seeking to critize your riding as we get all kinds of riders, but the overriding goal is to have you enjoy the horse, the sport and the love based on your needs and skills. If you come to Tonkawood and do an evaluation ride, we will then seek a partner for you, determine the suitability for you and then send you pictures. If you live to far, then please give us as much information as you can so we can make sure we show you a candidate that suites your needs and suites the horse. If you like the horse, after an evaluation ride, we send pictures, and if the look suites you, we will then HOLD the horse for you until you can come to see it. We also ask that you check out our sold column and give us an idea of the type of "look" you like. That cuts down time, effort and money by pre qualifying a horse for you.
Our horses must meet the standard of safety we require for all of them. No horse can be perfect at all times, and circumstances can occur that render the horse unsuitable or the rider not in tune. Some horses are better suited to individual needs than others, that is why we are asking you to give us a list so we can determine if and how a horse will suite your needs.
