Cole Cameron All Rights Reserved 2021
In August 2017 I was faced with having to replace my
injured EXCA competition horse. After much frustration
of not being able to find a well-trained horse I called
Double Horn Ranch. To my delight Cole had decided to
sell one of his horses, Smokey Lonesome. Being a
novice rider, I didn’t know if I could manage a rope
horse in an EXCA race. Was I ever wrong! Because of
Cole’s work with him, Smokey is a well broke horse,
light and responsive, and has awesome ground
manners. I purchased Smokey and we headed home to
Mississippi. I was able to complete the EXCA season
riding Smokey at the 2017 EXCA World Championship.
Thank you, Cole, for doing such a fantastic job with
Cole Cameron and I have been working together for the
past three years on not only my horses, but on my
horsemanship as well. He has a way of communicating
with horses and people that allow us to focus on
bettering our riding, no matter what level we are on.
My first Cameron clinic, and I have attended quite a few,
I was impressed on how Cole feels of his horse and his
softness with his horse when asking for any type of
transition. When my three year old quarter horse was
ready for training, he was kind enough to work with her
and she has been an absolute rock. She and I have
been in countless grand entries and parades, in which
she is a stabilizing influence on our entire team.
When I was ready for a “back-up” horse, Cole found me
the perfect match. My new gelding is even more
Cole is truly a wonderful horseman and trainer. I have
sung his praises to my riding group and now several
other members of our team go down regularly for group
I feel so fortunate to have such a wonderful influence on
not only me, but me as well.
Hi I am Trish Taylor-Ward from New Zealand. Last year
in 2017 I met and rode with Cole Cameron at Equidays
NZ, in both the North and South Island.
I found him to be both professional and encouraging
whilst I was both competing in the Isuzu D-Max off road
challenge and as a student in his demo class.
Cole became a favorite of many who rode at Equidays
as he demonstrated an excellent standard in
horsemanship and as an entrepreneur for the horse, and
for Cowboy Challenge.
We are so lucky to have had this experience and hope to
have many more in the years to come.
Well, this is truly a testimony of how good you are - both
in training colts and teaching people. I arrived home
Monday, the next day I started my uncle’s four year old
that was pretty much just halter broke, put the first ride
on him the first day and already I have three rides on
him, the first one out of the round pen yesterday and he
rode out great. Thank you for being patient with me and
instilling your techniques!
