Colter Klemm had always worked with cow horses but after riding for cutting horse trainer Matt Budge last winter he realized cutting was what he wanted to pursue seriously. It was the horse power and the quality of the horses that attracted him to the sport. He showed for the first time in November where he won his first buckle.
He said he really enjoys the learning process and watching different methods of training horses. Since Klemm has ridden mostly cow horses, learning how to draw back and thinking back has been a new concept he has found challenging.
Klemm’s next goal is to train and walk to the herd on an NCHA Futurity caliber horse.
Klemm is currently training for the 88 Ranch Performance Horses under their performance trainer Troy Brandemuel in Douglas, WY. He also owns a cutting horse that he trains.
Why Colter Uses CHTO:
“There are a lot of people online that are self proclaimed trainers but everybody on CHTO has either proved themselves training or showing. That was the big reason why I signed up for it. There is nowhere else that you can get this knowledge from this many different guys that are proven.”
