About Rick Hopkins

Reading articles every night from the Western Horseman, from trainers all over the world. Then having the opportunity next day to go and put that into practice every day.

These Western riding skills that Rick learnt combined with his Australian Horsemanship skills has prepared him to be able to train horses for any discipline.

It is all trial and error but you soon learn what does and doesn’t work as your horses will tell you when you are doing it wrong. Always take the time to think about what you are doing with your horse.

Riding and training Sprint Racing Quarter Horses was an exciting time of my life. Followed on by riding in rodeos.

Selling horses to the public taught me to learn to read people and what horses would suit them. This showed me that I needed to sell my horses from home so I could have the opportunity to better match people to their horses.

My business now is to prepare and campaign horses for the public, in any discipline. The discipline that is my favourite is campdrafting and the family atmosphere it has.

Having gathered all this knowledge over the years I am now looking forward to passing on the skills to everyone in the future.
