How I Got Started: When I was rodeoing in the late 1960’s I saw Greg Lougher (Legendary Californian Horseman who introduced cutting to Australia) give a
cutting demonstration. Greg was by far the best in Australia when it came to working cattle and I thought that’s what I want to do. Greg became my mentor. I grew up on a dairy farm and went droving (cattle driving) for three years and got to know cattle. I have spent my whole life on the back of a horse breaking in for people such as Reg White and Sinclair Hill so I have learnt how horses think. I would study all of the horse disciplines and attend clinics from people such as Les Vogt.

Biggest mistake I’ve made: My biggest regret is not spending enough time with Greg Lougher. I was more focused on rodeoing back then.

Biggest myth about cutting: That it’s about the show pen and who wins! To me, it’s about the feeling you get when you have done a good job training that horse and feeling the connection a horse has with a cow.

Favourite quote: “As much as you can, as smooth as you can.” – Graham Amos

Most memorable moment: When I placed fourth in U.S. NCHA Futurity in 2005 and in 2002 when I scored the U.S. NCHA Futurity Highest Aggregate.

Training Philosophy: As much as you can, as small as you can.
