Brad Jordan was introduced to cutting through his daughter’s barrel racing coach and family. He and his daughter followed them into the sport. He has really enjoyed cutting and has been working at his skills for two years.
“I’m more about building a connection with the horse. I love the sport and I want to win and be competitive but for me it builds a bond with the horse that I probably wouldn’t have built otherwise. That is important to me.”
Jordan’s most memorable moment in the sport is when he went to Eastern Nationals with his daughter, Ellie. He enjoyed the whole experience and watching his daughter show. They competed very late at night and said his daughter almost fell asleep on her horse but when it was time to show she perked right up and rode well.
His favorite thing about the sport is, “If the stars align and you have a great run, you can beat anybody. I like the possibility of that.”
Jordan has to drive at least three hours to get to a show. He rides with a trainer as often as he can but that too requires a long drive so he mainly works his horses at home.
He hopes to master the fundamentals. “I think that’s where you win or lose.” His plan is to keep on learning.
Why Brad Uses CHTO:
“I wanted to have more access to the lessons. Being able to see certain things I may be doing wrong that I need to be doing right. I feel like it’s a trainer in my hand without having to travel… It’s a valuable resource. What you put in is what you get out.”
