"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!"

We would like to thank everyone who
attended our Youth Clinic as well as our sponsors for making
it a fantastic success!
We had two full days of horsemanship, education, and
camaraderie, resulting in advanced cutting skills, new friends and lots of
laughter and support for some of the greatest youth members in our industry.
Thanks to our wonderful sponsors, we were able to put on a full service, all
inclusive clinic for our “rising stars” and were very impressed with the
results of their efforts and progress. It was nothing short of amazing! We
will be posting photos from the clinic soon, and want to take this
opportunity to show our gratitude to the following sponsors and volunteers

Dear Alex and Leon,
We can't thank you enough for the
Fabulous 2 day Youth Cutting Clinic you
conducted at your home in Springtown,
Texas this year.
We want you to know how those two days
have changed our lives forever. You
graciously welcomed everyone into your
home with open arms. Your generosity and
kindness was overwhelming and you made
us feel as though we were family. What a
true joy it was when Leon mounted Cody
with one of your good horses. The
training and camaraderie was phenomenal
, along with the cookouts and swimming.
What great fun we all had!
Leon is so good with the children. It's
clear just how much you both care about
the future of Cutting Horse Industry and
Thank you again for all of your kindness
You are truly a blessing in our lives,
Billy, Kelly & Cody Cannon
