Ride Smart with Craig Cameron

Ride Smart with Craig Cameron

Craig Cameron grew up watching the rough and tumble methods of horse breaking and training in the 1950's and 60's. He didn't believe in the unnecessary rough treatment these horses received and very few clinicians and horsemanship schools existed. Taking on problem horses from local ranchers, Cameron began using a slower more natural approach that seemed to work. 

Inspired by trainer Ray Hunt, who advocated working with the horse, not against him, Cameron started training clinics of his own and filming training videos in 1985. Now, Cameron travels almost 90,000 miles and 44 weeks a year. 

After years of rodeo and decades of horsemanship clinics on the road, Cameron is still going strong at an age where most men are riding a rocking chair. Known as the "Public Defender" of the horse, Craig Cameron works hard every day to keep the cowboy way alive and well. He's received the American Cowboy Culture Award for the Working Cowboy, Western Equestrian Award, Culver Riding Academy Hall of Fame, and was honored by being adopted by the Crow Indian Nation and given the name "Captures Many Horses" for his work with the Crow Indians in Montana. He was also crowned the "World Championship of Colt" in 2010 at the Road to the Horse.
