About Russell Beatty Horsemanship               808-250-9949
Horses are my passion. Through out my career, horses have always been a part of it. From rodeo, shoeing, ranch work, horse training, and packing and outfitting, working with horses interests me and challenges me. 

I was given my first horse by my parents when I was ten. I was raised in Helotes Texas, which is a small town outside of San Antonio. I remember wondering how I was going to ride it without any saddle or bridle. So my brother and I took off our belts, fastened them together, and I hopped up and rode that horse with a belt tied around its neck. During High School I was an avid rodeo contestant, traveling to far flung Cities in many different States to compete in bull riding. I earned a full ride scholarship to College in Sheridan Wyoming for riding bulls. I studied Ranch Management, and I continued to rodeo riding bulls, calf roping, and riding saddle broncs for many years up until I turned forty two. 

After college, I was hired to start horses and train them to become Polo ponies for 4 years in Denver Colorado, and San Antonio Texas. I traveled back and forth between both cities playing Polo in both States. I also bought and sold horses for many years in Denver Colorado, and later in Roseburg Oregon. Additionally, at one time in my career, I drove Draft horses for carriage rides around downtown Denver. I also had worked for an outfitting & packing company in Durango Colorado taking folks out for hunting trips by horseback. 

I use Natural Horsemanship for all the horses I work with and train. In 2011 my interest focused on colt starting and I started my company Colt Starting Challenge USA. I competed and taught other horsemen how to start and ride horses very quickly, and taught them to ride their horse through an obstacle course in front of an audience at our events. I now have 9 years of obstacle course horse training expertise to add to my talents.
