As the interest in trail riding increases, so does the need for dependable and experienced trail horses. For many people, the search for a good horse can cover many miles and horse lovers can be very picky with both breed and personality. Some, however, simply know a good thing when they see it, or hear about it.
Reggie Knighten of Virginia wanted to buy a strong, experienced trail horse. He needed a horse he didn't have to train, but yet was not so old that he would only have it for a few years. Since Reggie had two artificial hips, he wanted a gentle horse that could comfortably maneuver the trail, but was easy to handle. Reggie found exactly what he was looking for at a ranch in Montana - almost 2,000 miles away.
