Meet The Happy Trails Walking Horses

All of our horses are Tennessee Walking Horses with the Cadillac glide ride!

COIN is a beautiful sorrel with a flaxen mane and tail born in 2005 who we acquired as a yearling.  She is now the boss mare of the herd, but you wouldn’t know it on the trail. She gave us a gorgeous palomino filly named Bri born in 2010 who would like to be the boss of the herd but settles for further down the pecking order. She has become a favorite horse for beginners.

SPIRIT is a half-sister to Bri as they both have the same sire who is a descendant of Trigger (the horse ridden by famous cowboy actor Roy Rogers during Western films in the 1940s and 50s). They are the same age too, born within a week of each other. She is a beautiful sorrel with a flaxen mane just like her mother Joy, who was born in 2006 and whom we acquired as a two-year-old. They look so gorgeous marching down the beach together.

THUNDER is our current main guide horse and the baby of the family, born in 2014. But don’t let that fool you as he is also the herd boss, taking over from his dad Buckshot after he was sold. You won’t find him late for lunch! He is a handsome dark bay and often mistaken for a black.

COCO is the grandma of the herd, born in 2001. She is a also a sorrel but with light highlights in her mane. She was the main guide horse for about 10 years, but now is one of our favorite horses for beginners. She is way down in the pecking order, which suits her just fine.

STAR was born under the stars in 2009 at about 4 a.m. with no moon to light the night. Her mother had been the boss mare until Thunder’s Grandma Gracie arrived. Star also looks like a black horse, but she is actually a Smoky Black which means she could throw a palomino or buckskin foal because she carries the creme gene. She is also very low on the pecking order and is good for beginners.

DUKE we recently acquired in August as a 12-year-old gelding. He is a paint or tobiano and is very gentle, making him also good for beginners
