How I got started: I took a job breaking colts for a cutter, Doug Reinhardt. That gave me the cutting bug and I never went back to cowboying!

Biggest mistake I’ve made in cutting: We were at a really big cutting and I was in the finals. I didn’t listen to my gut and I cut three different cows than I originally planned on. I did not win the cutting and another guy cut the three cows that I originally wanted and he won the cutting.

Biggest myth about cutting: I get a lot of people tell me that riding a cutting horse is not tough, that all you do is bounce around in front of the cow. You are not going to be able to just get on a horse and go win. A lot of people don’t recognize the hard work and discipline it takes to be successful.

Favorite quote: “Horse trainers know how to do something but a horseman knows why you do something.” – Bill Riddle

Most memorable moment in cutting: Winning the 2015 Open Slot Cutting at Fort Worth, and it put me over the million dollar mark!

Training Philosophy: Every day I strive to be a better horseman. Like I said before, a trainer can do it but a horseman knows why you do it.
