Clay Ullery is our co-trainer, friend, and part of the family around here at TTCH. Clay is an elite pro-rodeo header and high-numbered heeler; he is a superb young horseman and a phenomenal trainer - well beyond his age! Tommy and Clay merged their skillsets because both possessed skills the other wanted. The outcome is a solid horsemanship program that contains the crucial parts from both of their experience and expertise - one that works from start to finish to create willing, broke horses who exhibit a superior work ethic and thorough understanding of how to read a cow and deal with pressure. This style of training works consistently on all types of horse personalities and for each horse's individual potential... whether it's for a low-number jackpot horse, or an NFR horse.
What sets our program and horses above the rest?
- Experience in both rodeo and horse show arenas
- We do not skip steps or rush horses faster than they can handle.
- An actual understanding of the mechanics of the sport, as well as how a horse thinks and experiences emotions.
- We start with a superior product to build.
- Our number one priority is for our horses to be solid in the box and safe to ride.
- Each part of the pattern is broken down and our horses know them thoroughly - this gives the roper total control!
- Our horses are trained with reining and cow horse maneuvers. This makes them a pleasure to ride and easy to maneuver at any time.
- Because of this foundation, the horses' performance can be easily maintained... which ensures a long-lasting partnership!
