2015 AQHA Gelding
Compact and sleek, just like a Mercedes Benz, and in everyone's favorite color, Buckskin!
Benz is nothing short of the entire package. He isn't just another pretty face either; he has the kindest disposition, and is extremely smart.
Benz is trained in and out of the arena. In the arena Benz is extremely broke to ride. He is soft in his face and sides, lopes collected circles both ways, rides off your seat and legs, has a big stop, and a nice turn around. He would excel in the Ranch Versatility and trail courses.
He is also a trained heel horse and is very fun to rope on. Benz has also been used outside on the ranch for every aspect of ranch work. His resume doesn't stop there.
Down the trails Benz is a quiet willing partner. He is confident and safe down the trail taking care of whoever is on his back. He has been on countless trail rides, running into all sorts of distractions and takes everything in stride. He is good out alone or in a group, is traffic safe, and dog friendly.
Benz is super gentle and an in your pocket type of gelding. Ride him bareback with a halter and lead Benz is happy to do anything you ask of him. This is a trained, gentle gelding in wrapped in an absolutely gorgeous buckskin package.

Here at Triple T Livestock we focus on finding the right horse for the right rider, a good fit is what is important to us.
Horses have been apart of Coltons life since he was a little boy. He has been involved with horse sales and rodeos his entire life winning many championship buckles and all around titles. He not only has a passion for riding horses, but has always been involved in driving horses as well. Colton spent some time working as an outfitter in the mountains of Wyoming, and enjoys using horses for hunting and pack trips. Colton loves the cowboy way of life and uses our horses for real jobs. He enjoys branding in the spring and day working. He believes that really puts the foundation on our horses before we take them to the arena.
Alise did not grow up with horses, but it was always a dream of hers to train horses. In college she really got the opportunity to train horses, ride reining and cow horses, and that became her passion. She loves getting a horse soft and supple in the arena, and believes that a good foundation is key. Today, Alise loves taking her horses up the mountain, using them for hunting, pack trips, and trail rides. She believes that’s what really makes a horse. She also loves branding in the springtime and summers are filled with rodeos and ranch work.
We will work with your skill level, your budget, and your needs to find you the best horse for you. We offer a variety of horses from finished rope horses, to prospects, and we also have a passion for work horses, and crossbreds.
We offer such variety but what is most important to us is getting the right fit for you. We mainly focus on a user friendly and gentle horse in all the disciplines that we choose. A good foundation is very important to us.
Winter finds Triple T Livestock in Arizona where we really focus on team roping and the breakaway roping horse.
We believe a good ranch foundation makes a horse experienced and ready for any task they may be asked to do. First and foremost we strive to make sure the horses we offer have been hauled and seen a lot of country.
Combining a love of what we do with a passion for fitting the right horse to the right owner, we work to create well rounded, versatile horses, that have the experience and training to take in any direction.
