Garth Bullis and Reyality Check

Garth Bullis began his horse career in the English world and soon moved into the western disciplines. He tried reining, and roping but still hadn’t found his niche. He came across cutting in a video and thought it was the coolest thing he had seen. After finding a retired cutting horse trainer who helped him learn, he became hooked.

He purchased a mare in 2014, got her started and showed her. She taught Bullis a lot. The pair ended up winning the Minnesota Non Pro Breeder’s Futurity and all three go rounds before that. He really felt like cutting was what he should be doing and after his dad passed away, he decided to really go for it.

Greg has been cutting for two years now. He borrowed a horse and says he doesn’t think he marked above a 60 that whole first year.

He then looked for a horse he could buy. He bought Better Moonshine and they have experienced a lot of success together. One of his most memorable moments was when he marked his first 72 with the new horse.

Pam Crouch

Pam Crouch grew up in East Texas, and always had a love for horses. Her family didn’t own any horses, but her aunt would always to take her to ride when time would permit.

In her adult years, she was finally able to have horses of her own. Around 1995 she fell in love with the cutting horse industry just by watching it. Pam credits her horse Dualin Dalton for her confidence in the show pen.

“He won a lot of money and allowed me to have great success in the show pen,” said Pam. She has spent the last 18 years as a member of the NCHA.

With a demanding job as an ER nurse, she hasn’t been able to haul to anything other than aged events until the last 6 years.

A few life changing events led her to the outskirts of the Cutting Capital of the World in 2012. Pam says she didn’t have any intentions of ending up there, but she loves it because of how convenient it is to make the shows. She plans to start hauling in the aged events in 2019 with a new horse now that she is able to focus more on her cutting career, with Ben Roberson as her trainer.

WHY PAM CROUCH USES CHTO: “In my downtime, if I can’t make it to a trainer’s house, CHTO makes it convenient for me to be able to learn from right here at home from top trainers. It never goes away. I am able to rewind it as many times as I need to and apply it to my runs.”

She later found herself breaking colts in Northern Georgia. At that time, Reagan was specializing in problem horses. After a few cutting bred horses came her way, she fell in love with the industry because their quality.

Her passion for horses and cow work brought her to Texas. She worked under a few trainers and then went out on her own.

Reagan was working for a trainer that had a horse they didn’t think was going to make the cut in the show pen. They told Reagan they were going to sell her for $500. She asked them if they would let her try to get her through a few runs before they completely gave up on her. Little did she know this horse would provide her with her most memorable moment in the show pen. Reagan took Quiejannas Winning Streak to Sweetwater, Texas and marked a 75.

Her plans are to keep improving as a trainer with hopes of becoming one of the top trainers in the industry.

WHY REAGAN USES CHTO:

“I’ve always worked for trainers or trained horses for myself in remote areas that didn’t have easy access to advise [from] other trainers. Cutting Horse Training Online provides me with a learning tool without having to travel by providing information from some of the top trainers.”

Sammy Broussard

Sammy Broussard has always had his hand in the horse business. His family was one of the first families to bring cattle into the state of Louisiana. Ranching was done on horseback for the Broussard family. In addition to their cattle operation, they also had race horses.

Broussard, from New Iberia, Louisiana, then found himself competing in team penning and working cow horse as a young man. He went to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in 1999 to compete, and that is when he got to watch his first cutting horse competition. “This is the real deal! This is ultimate horsemanship!” Broussard remembered thinking to himself.

A few months later he entered a team penning that was followed by a cutting. He then found himself entered in the cutting as well. His first impression of the cutting horse industry he describes as “Great,” because of how willing everyone was to help turn back for him, even though he didn’t know anyone.

That following week he went to trainer Bob Bouget after being introduced by Bob’s son Boe. Every Wednesday night for the next three years Broussard found himself at his trainer’s house practicing.

He said it is hard to pick the most memorable show moment because, “Every time you have good cattle, your horse works good, and the judges mark you, it’s a good day in the show pen.” His most memorable moment is making the finals in the Will Roger’s Coliseum, after showing there for the first time on a horse he had trained.

MR DAGWOOD is the horse he credits for his success. Sammy Broussard said, “He always finds a way to win. I can count on him at any time.”

WHY SAMMY USES CHTO: “I find that it is a great place to get information from people who know so much and are so willing to share it. If this would’ve been around when I first started, I would’ve been able to learn certain things a lot quicker. This is a tremendous tool for people who are just getting into the industry and keeping them in it.”

She had grown-up around cow horses and always competed in barrel racing, but with the perception of how challenging the sport of cutting was she just couldn’t resist giving it a try.

“I really love cutting,” Culp said. “It came pretty natural to me. I like the pressure and feel as though I can go in with confidence and be straightforward with my [cow] pick.”

Although it was her first year cutting, Culp made the upcoming nationals that will be hosted mid-July in Wyoming. Culp says she plans on using her graduation money to send her longtime horse, a 14 year-old mare (her barrel horse and cow horse), Annie, to see her trainer Mason Griffin. She wants to tune her up and go for the NCHA World Titles in the $2,000 or $35,000 classes.

Despite her graduation and the end of her high school rodeo debut, Culp says she plans on continuing to cut in the NCHA.
