Kevin has unique experience with a presence in both the show arena as well as the ranch world.
He works to have his ranch horses to ride like show horses and he wants them to work a cow with precision, know how to spin, how to stop.
He trains his show horses to have the same mental approach to their job as an honest ranch horse, where they don't get hot. He doesn't want to have to lope his horses for two hours in order to show them for two and a half minutes.
He wants to unload a horse off the trailer, trot them around for a little bit, and then go show them.
Kevin believes a horse can perform and also be relaxed. Finding the balance between these two things is important.
He thinks a lot of cowboys could learn from the show world, but the show world could learn a lot from how cowboys ride and treat their horses.

Tim Cox is one of the preeminent western artists in the world today. It has been a pleasure to get to know him and his family as well as working horseback with him. I am truly honored and humbled to have been included in several of his paintings.
