Clinician Ken McNabb Endorses Pyranha

A true blue American cowboy with a boyish enthusiasm for life and strong family values, Ken McNabb grew up in a traditional ranching family in the mountains of Wyoming . This modern day Roy Rogers knew from a young age that he wanted to help others. As a boy he was unsure of how he would achieve this, but it became crystal clear when he was 16 years old. Sitting in the audience at a horsemanship clinic, he knew within the first fifteen minutes that horsemanship and teaching was his calling.

Since then he has been changing people's lives through his weekly television show, instruction of clinics nationwide and special appearances at large expos. He still carries with him the passion and conviction he had as a young boy. Living his life on horseback has proven to be the ultimate way for McNabb to reach out to people and their horses.

Ken creates a unique environment where each horse is trained using gentle methods and the rider is coached to become their personal best. Ken's commitment to strong family values and patriotism, help make him the kind of speaker/trainer people enjoy.

In 2007, Ken competed in and won the Colt Starting Challenge at the Mane Event Expo in Vancouver , WA . In 2008, he competed at the prestigious Road to the Horse competition in Murfreesboro, TN against Chris Cox, Tommy Garland and Mike Kevil. In typical Ken McNabb style he won over spectators with his good natured approach and ability to develop a very aggressive colt into a willing partner. In October of 2008, Ken won the Trainers Challenge Colt Starting Competition in Chilliwack , BC Canada , beating out Charles Wilhelm and three time champion, Doug Mills, from Canada. He is slated to return to Road to the Horse as a competitor alongside Craig Cameron and returning winner Richard Winters at the March 2010 event.

Together, Ken, his wife DeeDee, and their two young sons Kurt and Trent live near Cody , Wyoming where they are dedicated as a family to teaching others to dream bigger, ride taller and live happier.
