Julie Clarke is the owner of Clarke Butte Ranch of Bend, Oregon. She has always had a passion for horses, which is what she claims to be the foundation for her breeding success at Clarke Butte Ranch.
Julie retired from a corporate career and found her fascination with the cutting discipline. She was trained by NCHA Hall of Fame Member Phil Hanson Jr. who was also the trainer to some of her most successful horses that stand at Clarke Butte Ranch. Little Silver Belles, with LTE of $200,431.68, was one of those, along with Pounce who has LTE of $217,585.59.
Julie continues to show cutting horses in the non pro division and trains with Morgan Cromer and Eric Wisehart.
Why Julie likes CHTO: “CHTO is a great, quick resource to find training and showing tips from respected professionals in our industry who have similar but different points of views. It’s my go-to gift for fellow cutters!”
