How I got started: I went through Pony Club (like 4H) as a kid and then into western pleasure. I had a chance to ride a cutting horse and was hooked from then on.

Biggest mistake I’ve made in cutting: Thinking it would get easier as time goes on.

Biggest myth about cutting: Thinking that you will ever master it. It’s not possible. Favorite quote: “The harder I work, the luckier I get.” – Thomas Jefferson

Most memorable moment in cutting:
In 2002 I won the Australian Derby and Gold Cup Open at the same show with a 75 and 76 score; and also winning the Australian Futurity in 2006.

Training philosophy: Relate as much of your training as possible to the cow. I also believe that to be competitive, 90 percent of it is mental.
