It Starts Within™ is a celebration of the passion, drive, determination and dedication it takes for a horse and rider team to achieve and exceed goals both in and outside of the arena.
“There's something special when you and your horse have gone out and competed, you've laid it all out on the line, and things go right. They're better for it and you're better for it.”
Clayton EdsallNRCHA World’s Greatest Horseman
Platinum Performance client since 2007
Growing up on his family’s cattle ranch in Montana, Clayton developed a passion for horses at a young age. Initially, starting colts was just a way of life, but would later blossom into a thriving career and his life’s work. As a young rider Clayton had the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the business, including; Joe Wolter, Brian Neubert, Tink Elordi, Ray Hunt and Tom Dorrance. It was then that Clayton decided to leave the ranch and further his knowledge as a horse trainer. Now a leading rider in the National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA), Clayton has achieved may accolades including the NRCHA World’s Greatest Horseman title, Open Hackamore World Champion, Open Stallion Stakes Champion and most recently the NRCHA Open Hackamore Classic Championship, to name a few. Clayton currently owns and operates Edsall Performance Horses, a successful and well-rounded training operation in Oakdale, California with his wife Chelsea and two children, Weston and Rylee.
