GOING TO THSRA FINALS!
"We have been cutting for only about a year now
and you taught us so much in one week!"
and Wayne Harris, Prosser, WA
"I could not have possibly found a better
place to come and learn the basics of cutting
and make the transition from polo. If I had not
found Leon I do not think I would have continued
~ Alison Colquhoun,
"What a great environment to be learning
in! The 6 or more horses that I rode while I was
there were all outstanding and I am forever
grateful to them. "
~Benn Watson, Scone,
"I worked 70 head of cattle on six horses in 3
days with Leon. I'm amazed at how much we
accomplished and feel so much more confident as
a cutter after having this experience!"
"After 4 days with Leon, he completely turned me around and got
me back on track!"

A word from Leon:
WHAT ABOUT YOU?????
If you're anticipating some challenging competition
during the upcoming season, (weekend or aged event),
consider giving yourself the same edge you're currently
giving your favorite show horse.
You spend substantial amounts of money to place your
horse with a top professional, whose expertise is "training
cutting horses". What investment have you made in "training"
Most successful trainers don't have time to spend
teaching amateur riders how to develop their horsemanship.
They are responsible for getting winning results in the show
pen, and they are excellent at it. However, their time is a
precious commodity. Unfortunately, amateur riders don't
always get the time and attention necessary to move forward
in the game, and consequently become discouraged and
disillusioned. Often leaving the sport with unpleasant
memories and a sore checkbook, within the first 2 years.
Pilot error is the most common cause of disappointing
runs and lost entry fees. Thousands of dollars are spent on
training cutting horses to be solid enough to forgive and
enhance their amateur rider's lack of experience. What most
people don't realize, is that they are not always as far
away from a solution as they may think. Within one or two
sessions, people fall back in love with their horses, and
leave with a list of new "lightbulbs" turned on. Their
relationships with their horses are quickly transformed.
First, let me ask you some questions.
1. Why did you decide to start cutting?
2. What were your original goals for yourself?
3. How long have you been cutting?
4. How many horses have you bought?
5. How many trainers have you had?
6. How much money have you won?
7. How much money have you spent?
8. Are you where you want to be in terms of your riding
9. Is there room for improvement on your behalf, or would
you prefer to simply buy another horse?
My contribution to the cutting industry is to educate
riders to a higher level of horsemanship and raise the bar
on future competition.
The people I work with are highly successful, intelligent athletes in
their own right. and I'll always appreciate what the great
masters have taught me. That knowledge can't be found in
books or videos. I've also picked up a few insights of my
own along the way, and it's time to share that knowledge
with other riders who won't have the opportunity to benefit
from the old masters.
I hope to be instrumental in many more success
stories for my students in the years to come. It's been very
rewarding to see the results of our combined efforts. Like I
said, everyone wins, including trainers (whose horses stay
right longer), riders who are more confident and successful,
and last but not least, the true magicians of this sport,
