Born and raised in Colorado, Todd grew up around horses and cattle. After working on ranches, feedlots and in sale barns with his father, Harold,he moved to Kansas. On a rodeo scholarship Todd rode bareback horses and team roped. Receiving his associates degree in Animal Science Todd pursued a career in equine reproduction. While completing his college internship in Pattison, Texas, home of Sam Wilson and World Champion Bob Acre Doc, it was here Todd was introduced to the world of cutting. After two years at Sam's, he had another great opportunity to head to California and manage the breeding facility at the Ward Ranch in Tulare. It was here that Todd was able to begin his training career along side John and the legendary Greg Ward. Learning from great horsemen, he saw what it took to make great cutting, roping and reined cowhorses. Since that time Todd has been fortunate enough to have worked for other NCHA Hall of Fame trainers such as Tim Smith, Lindy Burch and Tom McTaggert. Moving back to Colorado and training professionally on his own, Todd wanted to give back to his sport. After three years as President of Western States Cutting Horse Association and becoming a AAAA NCHA judge Todd left the cold winters of Colorado. In 2012 he was blessed with an opportunity to purchase a training facility of his own in Morristown, Arizona. Training for the public, with his wife Kim at his side, is a dream come true.
