Experienced Trail Horses For Sale
"Home Grown/Trained"


All of our horses offered for sale are owned by and reside at Evening Shade Farm, Shelbyville Tennessee. We do not offer for sale consignment, horse sale or trade horses. If we don't believe enough in a horse to invest in him/her with our money, why should we expect you to believe enough in that same horse to consider investing in him/her with your money to have as your next companion and trail/pleasure partner? And we would not consider placing any horse until we've lived with them long enough to know who they really are and how they respond to all the many different aspects of their life. That's not something anyone can know in just a few days or weeks, even though some sellers will take your money for a horse before they've had them long enough to need the farrier - sometimes before they've even seen them in person. These are not horses that we just got in last week or month, from some horse sale, or long distance by the trailer load  from some "horse traders/ brokers" who told us how "trail worthy" they are supposed to be. Ask any potential seller where and from whom their horses come as well as how long they've owned and ridden them personally because you have a need, and a right, to know.  We know all our horses well. These are horses that we (David and Lisa) personally checked out and tested before choosing and purchasing them. On average, we look at 12-15 horses to find the "one" that we will ultimately choose to bring home, spending most of our "spare time" traveling all over meeting new people and horses in search of those really special horse partners. With the rare exception, all of our horses are registered "Tennessee Walking" or "Spotted Saddle" as we have found that year after year after year they are the best all around trail/pleasure breeds to be found, bar none. Most of our horses for sale are born and raised here, purchased as yearlings and raised here, and have lived with us sometimes two years and more. Their mouth/teeth are done professionally, they are up to date on vaccinations and wormed every other month, eat Purina Horseman's Edge feed and top quality hay twice daily, are shod and ridden by us, and are a part of our daily lives and our family. As the pictures and videos will show, our gaited trail horses are never ridden in "long shank bits", "gag type bits", "twisted wire bits", or any other harsh style of "Walking Horse" bit and/or using lots of hold with tight reins/curb. All of our gaited trail horses are taught to work first in a plain "snaffle bit" with no curb strap/chain for a very light touch. Only when they fully know and understand what is expected are they finished off with a very mild "Argentine" style snaffle for that last little bit of primping. Our horses have normal feet with NO long toes or low heels, NO weighted or oversized shoes and are shod to their natural conformation the same as any normal trail horse of any breed should be. Because every horse is a unique individual, our descriptions, videos, and personal insights are original and specific to that horse and not cookie cutter style with just the name changed or some slight variation inserted here or there. Every horse is described as honestly and accurately as possible. We can relate how a particular horse behaves in our experiences because we know them all very well. Lisa and I are the ones that do the feeding, clean their stalls, and groom/shoe/ride them each personally. These all important hours with them are not entrusted to anyone else. We will never tell you that any horse we offer is "BOMBPROOF" or resort to "trader gimmicks/ tricks" but can tell you that our horses are ridden and tested regularly by Lisa and me, not some hired "cowboy/girl", in actual real world trail riding situations and they have proven themselves to be as solid and steady as any living/breathing horses could be. Because we start out with innately calm/laid back NON-SPOOKY horses, they don't have to be "trained" not to spook or scare, so we spend our time riding and having fun teaching new trail skills. We will not embellish with bogus terms or exaggerated claims just to get someone to unwittingly place their safety and trust in a particular horse. You are welcome to come here and test ride any horse you like, pictures and videos are available for viewing, pre-purchase exams before a horse leaves our farm by any vet of your choice (at buyers expense) are welcome, and references from previous buyers will gladly be furnished. Just like you, we want the fit/relationship between horse and human to be a total success so we'll have numerous questions for you just as you will for us. Each of our gaited trail horses have their dental records, shoeing records, AVID microchip registration, a current Coggins test, and are furnished with a brand new health certificate for traveling. Horses are livestock and there are inherent risks involved with any horse you purchase. If you are not prepared to accept those risks, please do not consider a horse from us. No warranties or guarantees are expressed or implied. Thank you for visiting our site.

As the videos will show, our horses are without any doubt trail ridden in the real world of hills, water, logs
dogs, etc. We feel that it's very important to actually ride and use these horses on real trails and we show you
with videos which are taken by us (David and Lisa) out on real trail rides. We don't stand on or crawl under
our horses (we could), but we do extensively expose them to real trail challenges which is what truly matters.
I almost always take the trail videos from horseback while either sitting on and/or riding down the trail. The
views will sometimes be a little shaky even though I am most often riding hands-free guiding with my legs so
that I can use both hands to "stabilize" the camera. Maybe someday I'll get some high tech hat-camera...Ha

Every one of our horses is grain fed twice daily for as long as they live here to promote optimum health/fitness &
 so they will feel/look their very best. They will look just like their pictures if you come here to see/meet them in
person and most likely will be even FATTER. In 40 plus years spent around hundreds of horses, I've never met
 an under fed/under nourished horse that wasn't "kid/ beginner/ husband broke" because they just don't feel good.
Years ago I asked a knowledgeable horseman "What's your favorite kind of horse?" The immediate answer... FAT!
I've never forgotten that conversation and we couldn't agree with any statement any more whole-heartedly.
Once you've ever had the opportunity to ride and own a great young horse that's got a clean slate, no bad habits,
and no old "baggage" from previous owners/riders, you'll never want the "typical older" horse again
. The really
great older horses you see aren't great because of age but rather because they were really great younger horses...
At the end of the day, I believe that all any of us really want is a reliable horse that is easy/simple to ride because
trail riding is supposed to be fun/relaxing and not another job.  We already have one of those so we can pay for this.

Each one of our horses carries an AVID Microchip for their protection and safety. These are implanted by our
personal vet (invisible/painless/permanent/tamper-resistant), can be registered nationally and traceable, forever.
This provides a foolproof way to protect your next horse and undeniably proves the exact identity of each horse...
Each one of our horses available for sale is officially registered with papers from the Tennessee Walking Horse
 Breeders and Exhibitors Association and/or the Spotted Saddle Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association.
We have those official registration papers and signed transfers in hand for each and every horse we offer.

Tennessee Walking Gaited Trail Pleasure Horses for sale Gentle smooth naturally gaited Spotted Saddle Horse
 Every time we ride, our horses are either learning
 or unlearning something from us. The decision is
 ours to make and we're consciously/subconsciously
 making it every minute we get to spend with them.
  Horsemanship is truly an interpersonal relationship between horse and human
 and by my reckoning, the most important part of horse ownership. It will be at it's
 very best, the sum total of what you are willing to invest in time and effort which
 will in large part, determine what your horse/partner is willing to give back. It's a
 mutual participation activity so if you want to just saddle up and expect the horse
 to do it all, including baby sit while you just hang on, do both of you a gigantic
 favor by getting a big shiny ATV to ride. You'll both go to sleep much happier &
 much less frustrated, and yes, they get just as frustrated with us as we do them.
   Assuming you start with the right kind of horse, there are really only two main
 things you must do to have/keep the horse of your dreams. First, have a very clear
 picture in your mind of exactly who/what that horse is. Second, EVERY THING
 you do with that horse should be working to that end. Your horse MUST always
 believe any/every thing he/she does is in fact 100% YOUR idea--even if it wasn't!
   These two simple concepts will help you develop a loving/lasting/winning/and
 respecting relationship for ALL. It just does not get any better than that, period.
 I have several horses ready and available but the weather will
 not cooperate for pictures and videos.  One of them is my own
 personal horse of 7 years, LS.  Please call for information and
 details on these horses.  Thank you, David 

  Lewis and Clark must be looking for her...TrixieHontas is one fine girl
 by anybody's standards. She's a very stoutly made 14.2h of pure trail riding fun.
 Her gait is one of those just perfect 4 beat saddle gaits that makes riding so nice
 you'd swear you're in a Lincoln Town Car. Trixie is a mature gal at 16y/o but I
 will put her out there with anyone's youngster and leave them in the dust behind
 me. Her manners are second to none and whether you're on the ground or in the
 saddle, any time you spend with her is quality time. Trix would be the perfect for
 most any rider but she'd make the perfect last horse for that mature trail person
 who still has 8-10 good riding years and then wants to enjoy their horse just being
 around them and loving them. It doesn't matter if you don't ride her for six months
 because every time you saddle her up she's the same great ride. And don't think for
 a minute she is a dead head because she's got everything you'll need to get the job
 done and then some. On the trail she's cool headed and steady in any situation and
 always very surefooted. Trixie neck reins and backs the best and riding her out on
 the trail is just a blast. She's been here at Evening Shade for several years and every
 day with her has been a joy. But it's time to downsize a little and because I have too
 many old brood mares and others that can't be ridden it was time to let someone
 really enjoy Trixie as she loves to be handled and ridden. The pioneers always said
 "go west" but any direction you go on Trixie is the right direction... $3900

 Booyah is a Coppery shade of Buckskin with Dapples

 Get you some Boo... The Bronze Booyah is one very special guy to us and as the
 name Booyah implies, he brings some very special joy to his person once you bond.
 Boo is a one of a kind horse who will make that one of a kind horseperson the best
 of partners and companions. His story is very unique for us as we purchased him as
 a 2.5y/o colt who had literally never been touched or handled since birth. He'd also
 never been registered at that time so until we did his paperwork and DNA we never
 knew what his bloodlines were. And since we are very funny about what bloodlines
 we choose that was unusual for us. But he, and a Golden brother seemed to need us
 so we purchased them and the adventure began. We utilized principles from all of
 the clinicians out there in order to bring these boys to a point where we could begin
 saddle work and riding.  The reward has been well worth the effort and Booyah has
 become quite a special horse. He has a wonderful heart & disposition to compliment
 his beautiful looks. He is an awesome trail and woods horse and has excellent trail
 skills taking on even the most difficult challenges carefully. He walks up the steepest
 terrain one step at a time never rushing and keeping his footing solid & steady. Boo
 is the kind of horse that needs a confident relaxed person who is looking to ride trails
 and enjoy him themselves and would likelynot make a horse for friends, relatives, or
 novices to ride. He has always given 100% to us and done his best to learn each
 and every lesson presented and he has passed every class easily. He stands a stoutly
 built 14.3h and at coming 6y/o he is probably near the optimum size he'll ever be.
 Just like all of our horses, he will stand perfectly still for mounting and wait until he
 has been asked to move (after he flexes both ways) before taking a step. Even after
 an extended layoff he has always gone back to work like he didn't miss a day but he
 will do the best with very regular interaction with his person. He is NOT a horse with
 whom you only spend time when you are going to trail ride.  He draws a lot on the
 level of love and confidence he gets from his person and the better their vibe, the
 better his vibe. We will be carefully screening to find him that one person who will
 offer him their love for his lifetime so if you think that is you then feel free to call
 as I will not get into email questions about him... $4500

  Trail Videos 1 2 3 4 5 6   Boo is absolutely the best on the trail
 and we took these videos 11/15/14 to give just a glimpse of his skill and technique.
 He has always been rock solid on the trail and proved that again today after having
 not been on the trail in a couple of months.  We rode up on deer, turkeys, and even a
 flock of at least 30-40 big black buzzards in the trees tending to something that they
 were feeding on down in the hollow below. They were flying and lighting in the trees
 all around us while we were 10-20 yards away watching and listening to them.

 "Lord I was born a Rambling Man"...Parader's Rambling Man is the kind
 of horse that will have you wanting to ramble all over the country.  He's a coming
 4y/o who stands just a smidge over 15.1h and every inch of him is some kind of good
 looking handsome man.  Rambling Man is a stoutly built guy that can carry the load
 all day long whether you want to do it at a nice slow walk or step up into one of the
 absolutely smoothest nicest gaits you might ever ride.  Out on the trail he has the skill
 to tackle anything in front of him and he does it with a cool head and very sure feet
 which always leaves you feeling safe and confident.  He is patient in a crowd and so
 steady in his way of going that you might forget that you're rambling on horseback
 and not some fancy 4wheeler.  A few weeks ago a friend borrowed him for his partner
 to use on a big group ride with more than 100 horses and all the hoopla that goes
 with that, and they said he was absolutely awesome and were smiling from ear to ear
 when they brought him back home. Ride out alone or in any size group, anywhere in
 the group, he's got you covered.  Rambling Man stands stock still for mounting and
 does not move a foot until asked and then leisurely walks off on a loose rein.  All of
 the routine stuff like baths, clipping, loading/unloading is a breeze which make him
 so easy to spend the day with.  All in all this is one of those horses that is the total
 package from his great mind to his great gait.  The Allman Brothers Band would
 have been proud of this boy... $7950   Reg. TWHBEA/SSHBEA

  And the Eyes have it... Micky Blue Eyes  is anything but a "wiseguy" even
 though he is one tough cookie.  He's a 6y/o smooth riding trail guy with a heart as big
 as Texas and a disposition sweeter than Halloween candy.  At a very sharp made 15h,
 he is plenty of horse for most sized riders and he doesn't mind working all day long and
 into the night, if need be.  But don't think that means he is not equally happy to walk
 down slowly on a loose rein with all the folks that just want to ease along the trail, even
 those quarter horse people who still haven't learned that trotting is a drag.  Micky has
 ridden some of Tennessee's toughest trails and never batted one of those beautiful Blue
 eyes at the hard work and tackled it all with confidence and precision. His gait is a true
 4 beat saddle horse gait that rides like glass and he carries himself so proudly that most
 anyone who sees him pass will comment on his stylish way of going.  I love rididng him
 for many reasons that include his technical prowess on the trail, wonderful manners on
 the ground and under saddle, his high headed way of holding himself, and yet he is so
 easy in the mouth he'll ride as well in an "offset D snaffle" with no curb as he does in
 the usual "Argentine snaffle" in which we ride all of our guys.  This boy is one of those
 that really is the "total package" from looks to gait to disposition to ability and back
 again.  He is a breeze to handle doing anything you might have on the schedule for the
 day and your farrier will absolutely love him, and you.  Micky is going to put a giant
 smile on the face of whoever chooses him as their next trail/pleasure/life partner and
 he truly is one of the "Goodfellas"... $7950

 You gotta' see this handsome boy in person...
 Live your Dreams... Count's Day Dreamer   fills your days with dreams come true
 trail riding.  He's a beautiful 5y/o, 15.1h who will let you get as close as you want and
 return your love in spades.  We raised this boy up from just a little yearling and kept
 him back for a couple of years because he kind of stalled out growing for about 18 mo
 and then shot up to the big awesome boy he is today.  He has a really nice gait to ride
 at any speed from the slowest walk to his "moving on down" the trail gait and it is so
 simple and easy to ride.  Dreamer is a great pasture mate and keeps a stall very nice so
 it is easy to manage him in most any setting.  Out on the trail he's very quiet and takes
 on the trail with ease.  At home he is also fun to ride but he seems braver and more at
 ease on the trail.  He takes on hills, hollows, logs, ditches, rocky ground, and whatever
 else has come up without issue and if he does encounter something unfamiliar, he'll
 stop and look at it until he's comfortable and then move right along.  At home he is so
 easy with which to work as he loves baths, is so easy to shoe, respects your space, and
 does what you ask for the asking.  Of course, he stands still to mount/dismount, flexes
 both ways and backs, will not move off until asked, and then walks off on a loose rein
 just like a nice horse and partner is supposed to.  Loading and unloading are a breeze
 and once you get to your destinantion he will stand politely to be saddled and wait for
 you to get ready to leave out.  While no horse is perfect all the time, it is nice to have a
 partner that complies with your needs and makes horse handling and riding a joy and
 Dreamer qualifies for that any day.  Spend your nighttime dreaming and your daytime
 riding with your Dreamer... $5600    Reg. TWHBEA    Alt. Picture1 2 3 4 5

 Santana has just enough white to be really "fancy"

 New picture below taken 11/04/2014. Now that's a hoss...
 Get out your best shirt... Beaucoups Fancy Pants will certainly carry you out
 in some serious style no matter where you're going. He's a big 16h, 8y/o TWH who
 is another one of the many brothers we've had the pleasure to offer the last several
 years. His gait is awesome and stylish and when you pair that up with incredible
 coloring what you get is some major "bling bling".  This big boy has all the right
 stuff to satisfy the most avid rider who wants to look great and get the job done. I
 can't imagine how you could get a better total package and he's got years of great
 riding ahead. Santana is sweet like every one of the many brothers we've raised up
 including my personal horse, LS. He loves a bath, is a breeze to shoe/clip/groom,
 loads/unloads the best, stands stock still to mount, and is just an overall joy to be
 around any time/any day. As you can see in the videos, he'll walk out on a loose
 rein, step up into his incredible gait when asked, and cooperate with any request.
 We only have one more of these for a while as the next crop are just coming along
 as weanlings and yearlings and we're going to miss riding them until they come
 of age. We hear all the time, "you can't ride color", and although that is so very
 true it sure is nice when you can. That being said, I would take a dozen more like
 him in any color of the rainbow and that's just as true for every other horse we've
 got to offer at this time. Out on the trail Santana is simple and easy to ride taking
 any challenge presented confidently and competently. He seems to thrive in tough
 terrain and always has enough grit to get the job done right. It's time to go shop
 for some new wardrobe becasue you're gonna need something extraordinary and
 sharp to go with these Fancy Pants... Videos and some more pictures coming asap

Update below for all those waiting, sorry for the long delay... He's worth it
The picture to the bottom left was just taken 11/04/2014 and shows just how much
 Santana has filled out as an 8y/o.  He is as gentle as a lamb and one of the sweetest
 of these many brothers we have raised up and there have been many of them since
 they proved over and over again that DNA trumps most everything else.  These boys
 are the type disposition that once bonded with you, they would walk off the end of
 the earth if asked by their person in whom they have total trust.  I saddled Santana
 on 11/04/2014v for the first time in probably two months and as usual, he stood
 perfectly still for mounting then flexed both ways as he was taught as a youngster
 and then waited patiently for me to give the que to walk off slowly on a loose rein.
 Great minded horses with proper training from day one make horse partnership
 the absolute best in every way.  The videos below were shot immediately after I got
 seated and rode down the driveway after the long layoff.   Video1 2 3 4 5 6

 Your heart will melt... Heart of Bold is another great brother to Bold Kat, Me
 Three and several other of the very best we've had the priviledge to raise up and
 offer. At 15.1h and a coming 5y/o, he's just about perfect in every way for most any
 rider. Just like his brothers, he's got the perfect mind for learning anything we've
 ever showed him and he never forgets a lesson. One of the most fun horses of any
 age I have ever had the opportunity with which to work. He's so proud going and
 makes you feel like a million $$ and still gentle as a lamb whether you're playing
 with him on the ground or up on his back having one of the best rides of you life.
 Out on the trail he is cool-headed, confident, sure-footed, and equally important
 he is patient and quiet. He goes down trails with ease but if getting off the trail is
 your thing then he's your Huckleberry as he is just as great where there is no trail.
 He reminds me so much of Harold (top of the Sold Horse page) in every way that
 I find myself sometime forgetting who I'm riding and I tend to want to call him by
 the same name, so he's become "Harold, too" for me. He's got such a personality
 that seems almost human and the easiest/sweetest horse no matter what you may
 be wanting to do. Out on the trail he's tackled any and every thing/situation that
 has arisen from difficult terrain to whatever type of wildlife, which can come out
 of nowhere. And he has done it all with the confidence and professionalism of the
 much older horse that many think are the only ones settled enough to deliver the
 solid ride we all want to enjoy. Even if he weren't the beautiful Grey that he is, I
 would still want as many more like him as could be found because these are the
 only type horses that make the "great ones" who take perfect care of their human
 partners for years to come. This boy has something much more valuable than a
 Heart of Bold, has a gigantic Heart of Gold...  $8250               Reg. TWHBEA    
 Alt. Pic1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Head Pic1 2 Video1 2 3 4 5 6 7  I took this boy today, 9/29/13
 to use as my camera horse to get trail videos of King, which we did, but I also shot
 a couple of him as well.  He was awesome... Trail Pic1  Trail Video1 2 3 4  Enjoy...
 8/8/2014  I needed to go around the road a few miles to look at a hay field that
 will soon be ready and I wanted to see how it was coming along.  So, instead of
 driving the truck I decided to enjoy the beautiful day and ride my favorite boy,
 Heart of Bold aka HaroldII.  It could not have been a better ride and he proved
 to me again (just like always) that he is one of the absolute best we've ever had
 the pleasure to offer.  We went past dogs, hogs, cows, unidentifiable pieces of
 junk, all kinds of traffic, and much more with him just taking it in and going on
 down the road with ease.  Never a spook, bobble, jump, or anything else except
 delivering a totally enjoyable ride for a couple of hours.  And as a side note, as
 of that day he had not been saddled and ridden in probably at least a month due
 to having others to work and some very busy days keeping up with all the routine
 stuff that requires so much time.  It goes to show me once again that while great
 training is obviously vital, DNA and a great student to begin with trumps it all...

  All the ladies love him... Cassanova Slim Pickens  is another example of just
 why we go back to certain bloodlines over and over again.  He's the brother to both
 Freckles and Pretty Boy who are two of the best we've ever raised up and both of
 the ladies that made them their partners would not take a million bucks for them.
 Slim is coming 4y/o, 15.2h who's maturing into one great trail riding professional
 taking on the toughest challenges we've come up against like it was child's play.
 I once rode him out of the woods and onto a side road where there was an old farm
 equipment "graveyard" which included about any type wierd implement you can
 imagine.  We went right down into the middle of it all and picked our way around
 the maze of junk, and the ocassional 10 y/o round hay bale, and he never gave any
 of it a second thought.  He's got a very beautiful way of going and this super sweet
 disposition to match making him one fantastic partner.  All of the everyday stuff
 is simple and easy to do with him and, of course, loading/unloading/baths/shoeing
 etc are all done with ease.  I'll have to say that Slim keeps one of the neatest stalls
 of any horse ever and, believe it or not, he can stay out in the pasture for a few days
 and still look clean in spite of all that beautiful white.  As good as he is today, he'll
 be incredible like his brothers as he ages and matures physically making him some
 kind of fun.  His gait is very nice and it gets better and better every time we go out
 and put in some miles.  He'll stand stock still to mount, walk off on a loose rein, or
 get busy and move on out if that's your pleasure.  This Cassanova aims to please so
 get ready for some fun... $7200   Reg. TWHBEA    Alt.Picture1 2 3 4  Trail Picture

 10/21/14 picture below shows a filled out Stinky...

 This ain't your grandma's trail horse... Destiny of Dollar has always been
 very affectionately called "Little Stinky" around here and I will tell you why. We
 found him quite by accident while going to look at another horse, who when we got
 there to see, had a hind leg that was torn to shreds by a fence and the folks "somehow
 forgot" to mention that small fact.  We had driven 2 hours and were very frustrated
 to have wasted so much time and fuel for what could have been prevented. However,
 sometimes things have their own way of taking the direction they're supposed to and
 we found this little yearling in a back stall just covered with dirt/manure and we, of
 course, had to get him out of there. He had a wonderful disposition, was so very sweet
 and it was not his fault that he was in such a mess and actually "stinky".  So as a term
 of endearment we started referring to him as "Little Stinky" and obviously whether or
 not it should have, it stuck. We started him our usual way with ground work at 30 mos
 and then put about 10 rides under saddle before turning him back out to grow until
 we felt it was time for him to finish out. He is now 4y/o, filled out nicely & stands 15h
 so he is a great size for lots of riders. His gait is one of those absolutely awesome ones
 that requires nothing special and easy for anyone to find. In the woods he is willing &
 able to tackle whatever has come up and done it with the expertise of a seasoned pro
 which is because he was born to be a trail horse. He will politely walk on a loose rein
 all day long but he will always be ready to move on out for the asking which makes
 him  loads of fun to trail ride.   I wouldn't hesitate to put him in the trailer & take him
 absolutely anywhere to ride and know I have a great horse under me. We have a good
 young friend who loves riding him and will be sad to see him leave ESF but we have
 several more for him to enjoy and he does a great job when he rides. While we may
 refer to him as Little Stinky I can tell you this boy smells the BEST to me...  $6500
 8/1/2014  Stinky went to the fair and it was his first time ever to go to "town" .  He
 did the best taking all the hoopla like a gentleman with barely a bobble... The picture
 to the left was taken during the observance of the National Anthem...  Fair Picture

 Joe and Soldier are just some of the great brothers
 Having the wonderful opportunity to breed, raise, and train many horses through
 the years, you begin to think about lots of different aspects of the horses' lives we
 share. I always am so amazed at how the siblings seem drawn to each other even
 when they are from different years and foal crops. I really do wonder if they feel
 some familial connection like you hear about among sisters and brothers who get
 separated at birth or early age. We absolutely love raising up and training our
 own horses and having the chance to make them special and eventually become
 someone's very own, with no bad habits or "baggage" carried forward from some
 less than ideal life/home. Then that new owner gets the pleasure and opportunity
 to make that horse "theirs" and ride one that is truly unique/custom just to them.
 It's just really hard to imagine how it could be any better than owning, riding, &
 growing with a great minded young horse that hasn't "been around the block".

 This statement couldn't be any more true... Ha Ha
  We have several horses available who are not yet posted because the
 time/schedule has not cooperated for taking pictures/videos.  Feel free 
 to call for more info and I will be posting pictures/videos asap...

 Another great brother to my personal horse, LS,  and fifteen otheres we raised
 up by the same sire...  He's beautifully marked Sorrel & White and such a lover.

 Beautiful Grey 14.3h who'll be coming ready next spring...
Several others coming very soon as time permits pictures/videos...

    All of our Tennessee Walking Horses for sale and Spotted Saddle Horses for sale are ridden alone and in groups, on country roads and trails, around cars, trucks, tractors, ATV's, eighteen wheel Tyson Chicken trucks, etc. and are exposed to as many different obstacles as possible. Our trail rides consist of uphill and downhill, creeks and water, rocky and muddy, and sometimes roadside riding, so that the gaited horses for sale will be versatile and experienced on trails. Our gaited trail horses are never ridden in "long shank bits", "gag type bits", "twisted wire bits", or any other harsh style of "Walking Horse" bit. Each of our gaited trail horses is taught to work first in a plain "snaffle bit" with no curb strap/chain for a very light touch. Only when they fully know and understand what is expected are they finished off with a very mild "Argentine" style bit for that last little bit of primping. Our horses have normal feet with NO long toes or low heels, NO weighted or oversized shoes and are shod to their natural conformation the same as any normal trail horse of any breed should be. We represent any Tennessee Walking Horse for sale or Spotted Saddle Horse for sale as honestly and accurately as possible. Potential buyers have the option, and are welcome, to come and test ride any gaited trail horse and have a pre-purchase exam before horses leave Evening Shade Farm.
    We are not professional horse traders or brokers and do not sell horses for our living. Lisa is a Registered Nurse and I work with the School System. Consequently, the selection of gaited trail horses for sale that you will find on our site will be limited to only the caliber horse that we would personally keep forever because our goal is to offer high quality gaited trail horses, not quantity. While many of the trail horses for sale are raised and started right here at Evening Shade Farm, we also search out quality gaited trail horses. These are not horse sale, trader, or consignment horses but carefully selected and purchased by us from individual owners, and the truly good ones are few and far between. We look at many different aspects of each gaited trail horse we consider, and ultimately the decision comes down to one all important question; "Would I purchase this gaited trail horse for my own personal companion?". If the answer is yes, that Tennessee Walking horse is the one you will see on our Horses for Sale page available for your consideration. Please feel free to contact us at any time with any questions you may have using the address, phone number, and/or e-mail link above. We really look forward to hearing from you.....
