After a lifetime of riding other breeds, 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, brave 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.
We are James and Katherine Stone of Granbury, Texas. We launched Twin Star Farms in 2006 to produce quality Fox Trotters for our own pleasure horses. Since then, we've provided equestrians across the country and abroad with breeding stock, show prospects, and horses successful in a variety of disciplines. Twin Star Farms Fox Trotters have succeeded in the performance ring as well as on the trail, in field trials, as western gaited dressage mounts and in endurance racing. We are excited to share the joy of gaited horses with you.
