Clinton Anderson will conduct his three hour Colt Starting Demonstration in the outdoor rodeo arena at the NRCHA's Snaffle Bit Futurity celebration.

In June 2012, the National Reined Cow Horse Association Sponsor Committee Chairman Bob Avila announced that Clinton Anderson’s Downunder Horsemanship has become an NRCHA Corporate Partner

“We welcome Clinton and his Downunder Horsemanship to the NRCHA sponsorship family,” said Avila. He continued, “Clinton has been involved with the NRCHA Owner’s Committee in its project of creating some new activities at the Snaffle Bit Futurity. “His participation grew from there.”

NRCHA Board member Amanda Gardiner was excited about the opportunity to bring Anderson’s Downunder Horsemanship to the NRCHA audience. She said, “It is the first-time in three years he has done a 3-hour colt starting demonstration." 

"Clinton is very supportive of the NRCHA both as a spectator and a competitor. We appreciate him coming on board and actively sharing his love of the reined cow horses with his many fans around the world.”

Clinton, who has shown reined cow horses noted, “I’ve always loved the challenge of training a horse and the thrill of competing. When I discovered reined cow horse competitions several years ago, I knew I had found a new horsemanship passion. That’s why I’m excited to partner with the NRCHA to help spread the word on this great discipline and get more horsemen involved.”

Clinton Anderson is a clinician, horse trainer and competitor who has dedicated his life to helping others realize their horsemanship dreams and keeping them inspired to achieve their goals.

The Downunder Horsemanship Method of horse training is based on mutual respect and understanding, and gives horse owners the knowledge needed to become skilled horsemen and train their horses to be consistent and willing partners.

Clinton instructs horsemanship clinics, presents Walkabout Tours across the country, produces two television shows that air on three networks, hosts an internet TV website and is constantly creating comprehensive study kits and training tools to make learning horsemanship as accessible and easy as possible.
