I spent the day with Fred
, riding 3 horses over the trails for almost 4 hours.
While they were all nice horses, I had decided I wasn't going to get another horse unless I got exactly what I wanted without reservation.
The 4th horse was quite different, and I was not comfortable with him at all.
I'm pretty sure Fred
brought him out as a contrast to the earlier horses to get a better idea of exactly what I would be comfortable with as the next horse he
brought out was Bon Jovi and Fred
said I think this one will suit you.
Although I did not have a buckskin in mind, I immediately fell in love with his
looks and as soon as I rode him, I felt completely at home.
I took him for a 15 minute ride on my own through the forest and felt very relaxed and comfortable.
was very careful in placing his
feet and gave the impression he
would not do anything stupid and would take care of me.
At 14.3hh and 4 years old he
was younger and smaller than what I thought I was looking for but Fred
said that it's the breeding and character that counts, not the age, and he
was dead right.
With the number of horses Fred
has on hand at any one time you should be able to find a horse that suits you on your first visit.
However if that doesn't work out with constant flow of good new horses if you do find you have made a mistake you can be pretty sure you will find the horse for you in short order.
This sort of flexibility simply doesn't exist when you are looking at horses from individual sellers.
stock and I'm pretty sure the reason he
had me ride so many horses and brought out the ones he
did was so that he
could see how I felt on each one and then finally bring out the one that would be right for me.
I only wish I had bought my first horse from Fred

I want to write this letter on behalf of Fred
wonderful staff at Trail Horses
I purchased my Spotted Saddle Horse "Boston" from THOC in December.
I have had a lifetime of experience with horses and I have never ridden such a well broke horse as Boston.
is by far the best trail horse I have ever ridden and I can say that from experience being a trail guide for many years in Pennsylvania.
When I inquired about a horse, I told Fred I wanted a well broke horse to trail ride and maybe do a little 4H with, what I got was a 110 % better than I expected.
Not only is this horse puppy dog friendly, his
looks are outstanding, and brains and beauty are hard to come by these days, and I haven't found a thing that has rattled him yet.
I am so happy with this horse, that I will only buy horses from THOC in the future.
Thank you Fred
and your wonderful staff at Trail Horses
of Colorado....Boston IS truly a dream horse.
