I haven't heard of him either, but I focus on reiners not cutters. Sorry I can't be of any help.

Uhhh....try the NCHA site maybe? Look up his performance record - I'm not sure if you need a membership for that or not. I'm sooooo curious, because I luvz the cutters - why are you asking? I'd love to meet some of the trainers like him, or ride some of those horses! It's soooo on my bucket list!

He's close by and was referred to me by my farrier last week. So I checked him out. I was hoping he could give me and MY horse (who has good cutting lines) lessons, but he wasn't extremely nice about her (without even seen her actually) and said it's waste of my time/money (because I didn't start her training as 2 years old). I don't care much about his opinion on MY horse, BTW. I am taking lessons on cows in other place, but it's way too far and is hard to accommodate in mid of the week (and this guy is like twice closer).

But I'm not positive he'll let me ride his horses anyway because I'm not such a great rider (which is true :) ) and because I argue with him about my horses and about so called "trainer" in his barn he made me go to (that was a real waste of money, all I learned in 1 hour and for my $$ was how to put horse boots on all 4 legs ). So I'm positive next time he'll kick me out of barn. Oh, well...

Tiff, do you know this guy: Bob Laporta Summerwind Farm They do reining. I'm not positive they give lessons, but I may stop by and ask.

Ooohh...sorry about that! I know how frustrating that is. The cutting horse trainers here do not give lessons unless on your own horse who is in training with them, or unless you attend clinics with them.
Hope you find something else!

I hope so too! Thanks!

Unfortunately it's an "english country" mostly here (jumping, dressage, and so on), and I havn't seen "true" western clinics (like reining, cutting, working cows, etc.) much (except team penning and sorting once in while and I believe they just started them this year). Well, there are horsemanship clinics of course (like how to desensitize your horse or how to work on ground), but I don't find it too exciting, frankly.

Ya, it's hard. Mostly english here too, unless you want games lessons. With western around here, there is lots to be had IF you own a super nice horse for NRHA, NCHA or AQHA. The problem is, you must own and train at their facility and show with them. Kind of a bummer. I just bought a nice reining bred weanling so in a few years hopefully I'll get a spot with one of those trainers....hopefully is the operative word. Sometimes the assistants of these bigger name trainers do give good lessons at a lesser cost. Maybe try that? I know you had a kind of rotten experience with the one, but maybe try annother?
