One of the country's SUPER clinicians, Clinton Anderson is making a tremendous impact in the horse community. Clinton Anderson was born and raised in Australia where at the age of 6 he started riding horses during weekends and holidays. His family recognized Clinton's natural ability with horses and cultivated his interest, buying him his first horse at age 9. Anxious to train his own horse, Clinton began attending horsemanship clinics at age 12. At age 13 he began playing Polo-Cross, played for a couple of years and was chosen for a national team representing his state. At age 13, he began spending all available time during holidays with nationally acclaimed clinician and horse trainer, Gordon McKinlay of Rock Hampton, Queensland, Australia and using his knowledge to train horses for friends and neighbors.

coxChris Cox
Chris Cox' entire life has been influenced by his relationship with the horse. He moved with his ranching family from Florida when he wasn't yet two-years-old, to an island off the coast of northeast Australia to raise cattle. During his time on the 100-square-mile Prince of Wales Island, and while he worked as a hand on numerous ranches on the mainland in the years that followed, the horse served as work partner, transportation, entertainment and even companionship for Cox.

stacyStacy Westfall
Even as a young child growing up in Maine, Stacy loved horses and rode whenever she had the chance. When she was 13, Stacy got her first horse; her Dad had promised her one if she got all As in school. Stacy rode Bay bareback wherever she went. In fact, Bay was her mode of transportation to work seven miles each way until she turned 16. She and her mother rode almost every day and Stacy eventually started to compete in many events including jumping and barrel racing. While other teenagers were playing sports or shopping at the mall, Stacy was riding horses. When in 2006 she entered the prestigious Road to the Horse colt starting competition, Stacy heard from more than a few people that she couldn't possibly win. After all, she was facing some legendary trainers. When the competition was over, Stacy was named the winner, after a convincing performance that clearly outshone her competitors.
