Hi All!

What a year it has been! We had an incredible NRHA Futurity with all three of my Pale Face Dunnit colts making the top 10, along with my wife's horse winning almost $50,000 in the Non-Pro. Many more of his foals showed well and had combined earnings of almost $188,000 at the Futurity!! This was a huge accomplishment as we bred, raised and trained all of the ones we showed. I want to take this opportunity to thank my family, staff and customers for all of your support. Without you, I would not be where I am.

Return From Congress

Hi All!

I just returned home from the All American Quarter Horse Congress, where my wife, Ginger, and I showed four futurity horses by Pale Face Dunnit that we bred and raised. Between the four of them, they brought home more than $36,000 in prize money. I am very proud of these horses and look forward to their futures in the show ring!

Summer is over, the kids are back in school and we are hitting the road for the futurities. Our next stop is Las Vegas for the High Roller Reining Classic, where we will show both our 3-year-olds and our derby horses.

Hi All! We are at our first futurity of the year, the Rocky Mountain Reining Horse Association Summer Slide in Denver. I brought four futurity horses, all by Pale Face Dunnit and out of mares that we have shown and retired.

We are at the National Reining Horse Association Derby in Oklahoma City! So far the weather has been pretty good. We are all set up and ready to show. I only brought one horse to show in the Derby as we had the opportunity to sell several of my others.

How to Keep Your Horses Healthy During Summer Heat

One of My Favorite Times of the Year

This is one of my favorite times of the year. Our 2 year olds have had at least 30 days riding and we finally get to see them under saddle after 3 years of waiting time. A lot of people ask me why I start my 2 year olds early in Dec or Jan. The reason I do this is so they get 5 days a week of consistent training.

January is the month for resolutions. Mine usually starts the same, lose some weight and continue to be the best trainer I can be. As we roll through January the NRHA is having a judges school which I will be teaching and a membership meeting in Oklahoma City that is full of hot topics.
