Home of the friendly gaited trail horse
Polly Aulton, Summertown, TN
PoJo Ranch has always been noted for having friendly foals. Visitors love walking out in the field and having the horses come to them for attention. The goal has always been to breed horses for the baby boomer generation. Shorter, smoother and friendlier (if that's possible!) are the watch words. Will there still be names on the pedigrees that you can recognize? You bet but they will be older names; names of horses that started the breed; fewer show horses. Some call it Heritage or you can call it something else. What matters is that you will get a horse that does the signature gait of the Tennessee Walker--a running walk.
The foals are here! Click on the Foals link to meet our lovelies.
We have a new Hat model. PoJo's Panda-mo-nium is one of only two buckskin overos in the Tennessee Walking Horse breed. Her sire is Generating Panda Moons; dam is Temptor's Molly N Motion. She is a very friendly well gaited little girl. She's shedding out to a nice carmel color with high black stockings. An excellent example of the breed.
Third stall is here and it looks like I might need a few more!
Searching for a trail buddy? Need some help? I try to keep a list of available, fully trained horses near the phone. This list is not limited to the gaited breeds--Missouri Fox Trotters, Paso Finos and Tennessee Walkers. Although I am trying to convert them I have trail riding buddies in the quarter horse world as well. These horses are being offered by individuals I know, trust, and can recommend. Call for their phone numbers. I also am willing to check out horses for out of towners who believe they have found their perfect horse. For the cost of gas I will look at a horse for you.

New to the PoJo is Hawk's Colorguard AKA Smoky. Smoky is a 7 month old black and white tobiano who has been brought up well. He's a very friendly, well marked, well gaited foal. He has been DNA tested to be both homozygous black and homozygous tobiano. If he behaves himself for this old lady he will be the ranch stallion if not he'll be a great riding gelding. I tell him that every day when we walk together. He knows the score and so far has not disappointed me.
If you are looking for Dock he is now in Del Rio Texas. If you are looking to breed a champagne I'd be delighted to put you in touch with his current owner.
