Success Comes in the Genes

As the NCHA Triple Crown for the 2017-2018 season came to an end we had to go back and study results and acknowledge those who had success. There is a joy in every side of the game. It is not only the rider who is having success when the horse makes the finals, there is […]

The 2018 breeding season is in the books! It is officially in our rearview mirror. I sincerely thank our owners for allowing us the opportunity to manage their stallions.

The Importance of Character

Recent events have led me to center my blog today on something I think is rather important.

They are universally accepted as the […]

Happy Dam Mother’s Day!

The two most important women in my life – without a doubt – have been my mother and the mother of my five children, my beloved wife. Abraham Lincoln said, “All […]

But I’ve learned a lot over the years as to what motivates people in their decision-making process. Most are rational, but […]

What Makes a Champion?

What makes a champion? What makes them different than the rest? What gives them the edge that elevates them above all the rest out there? What is in the heart of a champion, and why doesn’t everyone have it? It takes great work ethic, dedication and sacrifice, but more than that, it takes talent! Kevin […]

Good, Better, Best for the Horse Industry

In 2007, I was introduced to the tremendous principal of “Good, Better, Best” by a remarkable man, Dallin H. Oaks. He is a leader within my church; I’ve never met him, but through the years I have come to deeply love and respect his wise counsel. In “Good, Better, Best,” he said, “Most of us […]
