Total Earnings: $2,344,831

Ascencion Banuelos grew up with horses since his family didn’t have trucks or cars in Mexico. At 13 years of age, he came to California and started working on a dairy farm milking 400 cows twice a day. After five years at the dairy, he kept hoping he would run into horses.

He would get a few days off every six months and he found a horse barn and applied for a job on those days off.

He even started training some of the pleasure horses to cut.
