REINED COW HORSE
"My horse’s nutrition is very important to me. To keep your horse strong and sound, you have to be on the right program…for me, that’s Platinum."
"If you can get a horse to believe in you and know you are honest and faithful to his needs and wants, the horse will build a trust in you that is unbreakable. Once you have that trust the sky is the limit on what the two of you can accomplish."
At the 2011 Snaffle Bit Futurity sale in Reno, Nick and his family purchased a colt named Time for The Diamond, nicknamed “Cactapuss” by daughter Tuli. Nick trained Time For The Diamond at home on his ranch, using a mix of standard arena training as well as ranch work. At the 2013 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Nick came in a stock trailer with a horse and a dream and ended up taking home the Open Champion title aboard Time For The Diamond earning a total score of 661 (218.5herd/218.5rein/224cow). "I was totally confident in my horse and his abilities. I’ve been telling my wife for a year, ‘I’ve got the horse to do it. If I can get things done right, I’ve got a shot.'"
