Eric Wisehart is a true American Cowboy.
All things ranching he has experienced. He grew up in Colorado but at a young age lived in Laramie, Wy working at a ranch and hunting camp where he built a great foundation for who he is today.
From there he had many jobs running over 6,500 head of cattle on thousands of acres, maintaining feed lots, starting two year olds and from there found his way training cutting horses. He is nearing the million dollar rider marker in just ten short years of training horses. Now he is combining all of this experience to expand his customers knowledge on their control of horse and cattle.
Eric is an amazing teacher, and if you have ever been in the show pen with him or taken one of his clinics you have witnessed first hand his respect for the animals and his love for sharing and teaching others what he has learned throughout the years.
I grew up in El Paso Texas and to many peoples surprise I didn’t start riding horses until I was 17 years old, when I was 23 years old I spent two years at Feather River College. After that I was able to work a summer with Matt Mori starting colts for the Van Norman and friends horse sale. From there, I went on to work for various trainers, but I broke into the cutting world when I took a job starting two years old for Lindy Northcutt and she let me show her one eyed practice horse named Cats Play Money. Even though I made every mistake possible I walked out of the show pen and said “Yep, this is what I want to do.” I can thank Ray Larson, Fulton Robinson, Matt Mori, Royce Goodman and everyone else who have helped me along the way to get me where I am today at Wisehart Cutting Horses.
I grew up in a small farm town called 84 in south west Pennsylvania. At around 8 years old I saw a horse being trained and have been hooked ever since. I was lucky to grow up around some of the worlds leading clinicians who have been great mentors and fueled my desire to become the best trainer and horseman I could possibly be. I later went on to work for multiple leading trainers in both the cutting and reining industry. I’m extremely thankful to currently be with YS<3 Cutting Horses where I work daily to help improve not only the horses but myself as well. Through hard work, dedication, and strong connections, I will continue to strive to better myself as a trainer and be able to pass on the same knowledge to other people that has been given to me.
