Joe Wolter – Techniques To Improve Your Horse
Joe is one of the most sought-after clinicians working today. Known for his deep understanding of horses and his kind, thoughtful approach to sharing his knowledge, Joe began his career cowboying with the renowned horseman, Ray Hunt, on the Soldier Meadows Ranch in Nevada. Later, he joined with legendary roper and rawhide braider Bill Dorrance to conduct the first ranch clinics, and also worked with Bill’s brother, master horseman Tom Dorrance.
After moving to Texas in the mid 1990’s Joe started colts for Lindy Burch at the Oxbow Ranch and later worked for the Four Sixes Ranch, training and showing replacement fillies and stallions. In 2002, he won the inaugural AQHA Versatility Ranch Horse competition at the Fort Worth Stock Show, and then won it again in 2003 and 2007.
Today Joe continues to compete in ranch roping and other events as his clinic schedule allows. He and his wife Jimmie divide their time between their home place in Aspermont, Texas and a summer facility outside of Ballantine, Montana.

Ralph Moses – Pole Bending: Dressage Done at Speed
“Preparation isn’t anything; it’s everything!”
In his opinion, there is nothing as elegant and beautiful as a well-executed barrel or pole bending run. And to get that elegance and beauty requires highest possible level of communications, relaxation, partnership, and harmony between the horse and the rider; all while being done at speed. This only occurs through thorough preparation.
Ralph has made a career study of the application of engineering and natural horsemanship principles to speed events. With a deep engineering mindset, Ralph analyzes and prepares for every possible situation in a speed run. This mindset approach balances all factors that affect a speed run and then develops an optimal plan for the horse, rider and environment.
With over 35 years’ experience with horses, Ralph has studied with many professional horsemen including Jack Brainard, Ray Hunt, John Lyons, Karen Rolfe, and Pat and Linda Parelli.
