How I got started: My dad started our family in 4H. We showed in halter, english and western. Bill Collins and Walter Thiessen were big influences, as well as my dad and Bill Riddle.
Biggest mistake I’ve made in cutting: Not trusting my horse enough.
Biggest myth about cutting: Thinking that when I did well that it was me and not my horse.
Favorite quote: “Prior Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performance.” – Military saying
Most memorable moment in cutting: Winning the 1996 NCHA Futurity.
Training philosophy: Train what you have, not what you want.
