What makes your horses(s) special?:

They all have a lot of heart and try to always give me their best. Each has a special character which gives them all a different and unique personality! I also raised most of them from babies, and my mom and I train them together.

What makes your discipline difficult?:

Long miles spent on the road and the money it takes for diesel and traveling, keeping horses sound and happy with all of the runs we are required to make, and running my horses on unsafe ground and/or unsafe conditions!

What is the most rewarding thing about having horses?:

Watching them grow up from babies and become winners: from the breaking to training, and then finally becoming successful rodeo horses.  All of this is fun and rewarding for me. I also enjoy seeing others do well and have fun on horses I owned/trained.

Favorite quote to live by:

Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.”

Why do you feed Cetyl M:

“Because of its unique and innovative technology. There is no other product like it on the market. There is a noticeable difference in my horses since starting Cetyl M and Re-Vitalize. Not only that, but they love the taste of it and eat it wonderfully on the road! Response Products takes pride in its products and always stands behind them.”
