How I got started: I came to the states when I was 21 and worked for Roy Carter for a few months. I then went to New Mexico and worked for Ray Hunt. I worked for Ray on and off for a few years. I started showing and competing horses at age 26. I love everything about cutting, from riding 2-yr-olds to showing a good trained show horse.
Biggest mistake I’ve made in cutting: I believe my biggest mistake in cutting is that I tried too hard.
Biggest myth about cutting: Some people say it gets easier as you go. I’m a firm believer that it never gets any easier. You keep on thinking it’s going to get a little easier each year. Everything is constantly changing. You learning something new every day.
Favorite quote: “Keep the sureness ahead of the sharpness.”
Most memorable moment in cutting: Winning the Limited Open at the NCHA Futurity in 2013.
Training philosophy: Keep looking for the small change and try.
