I, Mike Edgmon, was born and raised on a ranch in the Texas panhandle and grew up on a horse. I learned that honesty and integrity gets you farther in life. If I tell you a horse will or won't do something, you can bet that is the way it will be to the best of my knowledge. In my younger days I playdayed, rodeoed, and showed in 4-H. I qualified to the 1964 Texas State 4-H horseshow in barrels and poles. I placed 11th out of 250+ in the class. My mother, Darline Morris - 3 time World Champion Barrel Racer (NOTRA), rodeoed; trained; was a cowhand; and rancher. My father was a ranch cowboy and an excellent horse trainer specializing in reining. I grew up loving horses, especially the ones you could do whatever you were big enough to do on. I broke, trained, and showed colts during the 80's and 90's in Arkansas. I competed in reining, pleasure classes, speed events, cutting, and team penning. Our family was active in the show and playday circuits in northwest Arkansas and southern Missouri. I coached several young riders culminating in their qualifying and competing at the Arkansas State Horse Show, the largest open horse show in the world. I enjoyed riding the rugged backtrails in the Ozarks. I ran my mother's cow calf operation in New Mexico and the Texas panhandle during the 90's. I moved my operation to East Texas in 2006 and continue to enjoy breaking, training, and competing.
