For me, horses are more than just a way to make a living.  At 17, I found my Lord and through my faith in Him and my passion for horses I have been saved.  I grew up as an inner city kid in the  Ft. Worth area. There was a stable nearby and I would ride my bike there as often as I could.  I would offer to clean stalls, brush horses or anything else they needed for the opportunity to ride a  horse even if it was only for 10 minutes. I'm sure I was a pest, but I am thankful the owner didn't kill that passion in me.  I have always known  horses would be a major part of my life. The Devil may still have a hold of me at times, but his grip is getter weaker every day.

As I have grown in my horsemanship journey, I believe my true calling is in teaching.  I love to see the changes in both the horse and rider when they leave a clinic.  I get great satisfaction knowing I am helping them to form a better partnership and understanding of each other.  

I will continue to learn from my mentors each year as I believe there is always room for improvement.  I have traveled to Australia and attended clinics with a wonderful horseman/friend there for a month and came away with more tools for my arsenal.  

In 2018 I was one of the colt starters at the Legacy of Legends.  It was a great honor and a wonderful experience I will always treasure.

I look forward to meeting you and your horse down the trail in the future.

Horses Are A Way of Life
