Growing up rodeoing, Levi Price has always loved the western lifestyle. The summer before he started high school he got a job with a cutting horse trainer 10 miles from home. It did not take Price long to fall in love with the sport.
Later, he attended college on a rodeo scholarship at Conners State College where he almost finished his Animal Science degree. After college, he worked for Ed Dufurrena’s as his two year old trainer for more than two years in Gainesville, TX.
His favorite memory is the night Stevie Rey Von won the NCHA Futurity in 2015; he had been at Dufurrena’s for about a year. It was a great experience for Price to see the horse work everyday and watch it pay off claiming the coveted title. He said they were all very inspired to get back to work after that big night!
Price is very dedicated, he works two jobs. He has a small cutting horse and rope horse training program and he also works in the oil and gas industry. After he works his 12 hour shifts, he has to take care of the horses and then on his days off he focuses solely on training them. He owns his own horse and he has a few client horses. His program consists mostly of young horses.
He said his goal is to grow his training business and take a whole trailer load of horses to show. He plans to take his four-year-old to aged events this fall and make some open and limited open finals.
Why Levi Uses CHTO:
“I didn’t have a whole lot of time, working the two jobs, to travel and go to people’s houses as much as I wanted to, to get help. Last year, getting ready for the Futurity, I really wanted to soak up as much information as I could. So I got my membership and started watching all of the videos. [It’s been] super helpful. I could watch a video and get on my horse and try it. I think it’s truly been a good thing and really helped me.”
