I am Joyce Taylor with J. Taylor Gaited Horse Sales near Little Rock, AR. I have been riding all my life, so obviously; I have a great passion for horses. I enjoyed my idyllic childhood growing up on a cattle farm in the Ozark Mountains. I started riding Shetland ponies with my four siblings, graduated to Welch ponies, then on to full-sized horses. Many colts were raised on the farm that we all gentled and taught to lead and ride. It was a treasured life that has grown into J. Taylor Gaited Horse Sales, as I am now retired, can now spend more time riding and concentrating on bringing horses along to finished, well-mannered trail horses. I love to trail ride, and in Arkansas, we have some of the most beautiful trails, especially in the Ozark and Ouachita Mountains. I am a member of the Arkansas Trail Riders Assoc., three different Back Country Horsemen of America chapters, Missouri Fox Trotters Breeders Assoc. and riding clubs outside the state. I have many opportunities to ride and to put “miles in the saddle,” which ensures quality finished mounts. Though I grew up riding quarter horses, I focus now on gaited horses, Tennessee Walking Horses, and Missouri Fox Trotters.
I aim to match the right horse with the right rider/owner by spelling out and promoting horses precisely as they are. The wish is to pair rider and horse based on the needs and riding style of the rider and to ensure many years of safe and pleasurable equine ownership through the most honest and thorough representation of all offerings.
Thanks so much!
