Tarin has learned from the best and proven at an early age he has all the talent in the world to become a dominant force in the sport. He is now passionate about sharing what he knows at this cutting horse clinic and helping others achieve their best in this challenging sport.
Focus on showmanship at the cutting horse clinic.
Tarin will focus on showmanship at the cutting horse clinic and simulate a show environment without the pressure of judges looking on.

How I got started: Family tradition.
Biggest mistake I’ve made in cutting: Too many too list. I make them everyday.
Biggest myth about cutting: That it’s all the horse when you drop your hand.
Favorite quote: “Perseverance through adversity.”
Most memorable moment in cutting: Winning the futurity was awesome in 2012 but the 2014 NCHA Futurity comes to mind because the Rice’s had seven horses make the semi-finals and five made the finals.
Training philosophy: Figure out what each horse will do, can do and build on that. Try not to worry about what they can’t do.
