Todd grew up about as far as you can get from anything resembling a ranch, riding dirt bikes and BMX racing out of the east Bay Area. In his mid-twenties, a desire for change and personal development led to a move to Madera, a small community in the central valley of California. Here, surrounded by many well known trainers and non-pros, he witnessed his first cow horses going to work and became hooked immediately. He quickly learned as much as possible, with an aggressive intensity that only the equally obsessed could begin to understand. These days, little has changed. Todd was recently the Open Reserve Champion at Gabilan Cutters, Inc. for the 2017-18 season. He is an NCHA money earner and AQHA point earner. In addition, he has learned to repair and create leather tack such as spur straps, bridles, chaps, and saddles. In time, this will expand into making bits and spurs, of which there are already a few examples in use today.
