Through expert eyes

This show clinic is a new and unique way for any level of rider - novice, amateur or non-pro to learn more about the sport of cutting by getting to view their work through both the trainer’s and judge’s eyes.  The clinic goal is to teach the rider what aspects and skills a judge is looking for in a winning run. 

AAAA Judge and cutting horse trainer,  Tim Castilaw, out of Lincoln, CA, has been cutting on the West Coast since 1999.  He is the winner of numerous aged events including, the PCCHA Futurity and the Canadian Futurity.  Tim started his judging career in 2003 and has judged Forth Worth at the Will Rogers Colosseum consecutively since 2007.  He has also judged many other aged events around the world including Italy and the Australian Futurity.
