We are James and Katherine Stone of Whitney, Texas. We launched Twin Star Farms in 2006 in Pilot Point, Texas. In 2015, we re-located to Whitney to be closer to family. We love riding and are excited to share it with others.
After a lifetime of riding other breeds (gaited and non-gaited) we selected the Fox Trotter because of its versatility, temperament and smooth, comfortable ride. Our philosophy is to breed the best naturally gaited horses to produce offspring that perform intermediate gaits in hand so little is required from owners to bring out the gait under saddle. We also breed for an affectionate, calm personality that is reliable on the trail and a joy to own.
Our emphasis is on family. We think horse-showing and trail-riding are a wonderful way to spend time together. To quote a great friend and horse trader, Rev. C. Gordon, “There’s something about the outside of a horse that’s good for the inside of a person.” * Boy is he right and you see it over and over again. Whether it's stress relief for adults or confidence building in kids.
By providing a good selection of enjoyable horses and fun equestrian activities, we hope to bring more people to riding.
* Winston Churchill actually said this first.
