Gayle Weber fell in love with horses at a young age. After her kids graduated from school she had free time to fill and some friends introduced her to cutting in 2008. She attended two cutting clinics, one with Lindy Burch one with Faron Hightower. Weber competes in the 25k Novice Non-Pro, and the 50 AM.
One of her goals includes getting her horse out of the 25k NNP. Weber is very dedicated. She lives in Montana so she spends a lot of time traveling to shows. Weber said there is one show in Montana that is two and a half hours away, the rest of them are four to six hours away or further.
Besides loving the horses, the people and competing are her favorite things about the sport.
“It’s a fun competition. No matter who, if it’s somebody who is just starting or somebody I have known for quite awhile, everyone is supportive,” Weber said.
Her favorite memory is from the time she rode in the NCHA World Finals in 2012 in the $15k AM.
She said wherever she goes to show she really enjoys it and is thankful she is able to do the sport.
Her goals include working on her cuts. She said if her cuts are good, then the rest of the run comes together.
Why Gayle Uses CHTO:
“I am a visual learner. I learned that a long time ago from work and experience. I really love to watch the clinics online because I can listen to what the trainers say but I also get to watch what the people are doing, make my own assessments and see how they compare with what the trainer is telling that person. I really enjoy that and I would love to go to some clinics this summer.”
