How I got started: My grandpa Thomas Nichols started training horses in the ‘60s and he’s the whole reason I became a trainer.
Biggest mistake I’ve made in cutting: The biggest mistake I’ve made in cutting is not following through with the plan. And when you start to question a plan you’d made and not sticking to it, is when you start having mistakes.
Biggest myth about cutting: The biggest myth is that the last hole is a bad draw!
Favorite quote: “Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyways.” – John Wayne
Most memorable moment in cutting: My two Futurity wins in 2006 and 2011.
Training Philosophy: To train a horse to its full potential, regardless of its ability. Trying to train your horse to be as smart on a cow and as solid as possible.
