About Lloyd Deaton

Here at Valley Mist Stables, our passion is trail riding and working with good quality, gentle well-mannered horses that already have potential. We are very careful as to what we buy to take and resale. The majority of the horses here are younger & started under saddle by a professional horse trainer. Most of our older horses come from individuals out in the country or horses we personally know and have ridden with on trails; if we know the horse & have trail ridden with it before, we still take it in and try it with OUR ways of qualifying for resale. We keep each of our potential sale horses for several months, and they get at least 60 consistent days of professional training and are actually being ridden in real rugged trails. We do not work in a round pen. We take our horses out to the wide open world, where they will encounter everything a horse needs to see! We take our horses on actual trail rides, testing them in all kinds of different situations, like how they handle tight dangerous spots in trails like between a downed tree next to a river. We try our horses about any way you can think of with a horse making sure to be absolutely safe & sane, and trail-ready…busy traffic, ATVs, bicyclists, hikers, wild animals(Deer darting out, Turkeys flying up), crossing water, bridges, fallen logs, farm equipment…etc. We also like to make sure our horses can handle being ridden on roads. We leave our home & ride the country roads around here, where the horses will encounter busy traffic(semis, buses, motorcycles), ATVs, several dogs running out barking under their feet, other livestock(cows, donkeys, goats & loose horses running out beside them) As well as the scary yard ornaments, blow up holiday decorations. We also make sure they can ride well with other horses. They do not mind being in the back of the group, middle, or leading the line & won’t get excited stopping to wait behind or in front by themselves. We also spend time riding our horses in trails all by themselves, making sure they handle exactly the same as with a friend along! We can promise if a horse has a MAJOR problem considering bucking, rearing up, kicking, biting, running away, or cold-backed, it will NEVER be for resale as well as barn weavers, cribbers, or barn/buddy sour horses!!!
I am not going to tell you our horses are 100% bombproof and won’t do the first thing wrong they are LIVING ANIMALS, but I can say they have made it through OUR qualifications & got approved. Most of our seasoned older trail horses are sold to beginners, older people, or people that have never ridden a horse before!
We offer any potential buyer to try before they buy & what we mean by this is a group of us saddle up at our farm & directly go riding in trails (The trails surrounding us are for intermediate trail riders, Kentucky trails are somewhat rough). We want our customers to be 100% Satisfied before leaving with their new trail buddy & we look forward to them becoming repeat customers!!

We are available to show our horses by appointment only Monday – Saturday.
