Bobby & Kathy Usher
Bobby and Kathy Usher are our resident trainers and facilities managers. They come to us from Oregon via Arizona where they have spent their lives training and showing exceptional quarter horses and developing the skills of those who love and/or own horses. Their expertise covers a broad spectrum from very basic/intro to world-class.
Although they have experience in many riding and training disciplines, their passion has been in 4 main areas.
1) Youth development
2) Horse training
3) Rodeo competition
4) Cutting Horse competition.
Bobby, a former rodeo contestant/bronc rider is a world renowned cutting horse trainer. Kathy has shown horses in a variety of disciplines but grew up competing as a barrel racer. Bobby and Kathy have been married for over 40 years and passed their love of horses on to their family. Their son Clell, his wife Joan, and their children were/are world-class rodeo competitors. Clell is also an equine chiropractor; he and his wife own and operate Usher Brand - a saddle, tack and silver company.
Bobby and Kathy also serve as volunteer leaders at Hidden Springs Youth Ranch. Together, they are ready to both teach beginners and help advanced riders refine their craft.
