From northern Queensland, Australia, Cody Lamont has quickly made a name for himself in cutting. Growing up in the saddle, Lamont roamed his family’s cattle stations on the back of a horse. As a young man, Lamont had a passion for rodeo where he competed as a roper.
In 2009, Lamont landed a job with the great Al Dunning. And so his intrigue for cutting horses was born.
“I fell in love with cutting. Never is any run the same. There is just something about the competition, the cow, the horse, the rider; and when it all comes together to be one,” Lamont explained.
Lamont spent 6 years under Dunning learning the tricks and trade. For Lamont, success grew quickly. One of his greatest moments was in 2013 being crowned champion of the Open Western Nationals.
In 2015, Lamont built his own ranch in Scottsdale, AZ with his wife Majerle. The pair has grown Lamont Cross Performance Horses into a successful training operation with over 40 horses in training.
In 2017, Lamont showed “Dual N Gritty” at the Scottsdale Nationals and won the open 5k Novice championship. In 2018, He hauled “Tick Tock Shorty” in the 5k novice and finished 3rd in the NCHA world finals standings.
This year Lamont is already in the top 10 of the 25K Novice on a special horse named “Super Fly”. Spending much of his time on the road, Lamont is well placed to win the 5K and the 25K Novice World Finals.
Humbly, Lamont said, “I couldn’t do what I do without my amazing clients, our hardworking and wonderful staff at the ranch, and the incredible support of my wife & everything she does. I feel very blessed!”
Lamont also credits Mike Wood, Les Bates, Tim Smith, and Todd Adolf for his success.
In February 2019, Lamont and Majerle welcomed their first little cowboy named Locklan. With a great team, a ton of talent, and the drive to succeed, Cody Lamont is said he’s on target for a personal best this year.
WHY Cody USES CHTO:
“What I really like about CHTO is the opportunity for everyone to learn something from multiple trainers. The videos are easy to follow and really keep training simple for those looking to better their horsemanship skills and apply their knowledge of training to a cutting horse.”
