This beautiful horse is a gem.  He is a prison horse. These horses come from the Texas prison system.  They must be well trained and have good sound minds and manners. The guards use them to guard prisoners on the prison farms.  They are rare to find and when the prisons rotate them out they are grabbed by folks that want safety and well mannered horses.  Our Les was able to secure this horse. Snickers is  8 years old and stands just under 15 hands.  He is a "dirty Buckskin" which is a beautiful dusty golden color.  This is a good one folks.  We recommend him for any rider.


Now if you want color and unusual, this beautiful horse is an 11 year old Gruella.  Alamo stands 14 3 hands and is a gem.  He will finish evaluation this week as the weather has surely improved. He is evaluating very well so far..


This wonderful horse came in and out he went to a wonderful family that purchased our horse Oreo.  They wanted a second for their younger daughter. JJ fit the bill (sale pending)


This darling horse came off a working ranch and we think he may have had some reining training.  Our buyer purchased him from a ranch dispersal sale.  We have had the children ride him everywhere and he is a great safe horse that is fun to ride.  Miloh is 11 years old and stands 14 3 hands. Friends this horse is just amazing.  He is game and willing but absolutely safe and fun for anyone to ride.  We are picturing him with one of our nine year old riders.  He just does it all.  If you want a wonderful safe horse that is extremely willing and trustworthy, Miloh is it. We recommend him for any rider as he gages his rider which is worth his weight in gold.  All the kids LOVE Miloh.


This beautiful Palomino mare has been a star at Pam's Christmas camp. This mare was a outstanding at camp.  She did all the programs, from musical chairs, over the bridge contest, riding in tandem, riding in the water glass contest, backing through the l's and the noodles.  She is a gem. We love her. Watch for more pictures of her as the weather clears.  She is a 11 year old mare that stands 14 3 hands.

What do we mean by 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.
