Nic Howard

Trainer and Property Manager

“I’m very fortunate to have been able to follow my dream of riding and training horses starting at an early age.”– Nic Howard

Nic Howard’s childhood dream of being a cowboy came early when at the age twelve, he showed reigning horses for the first time. By eighteen, his training profession progressed after being hired by Tim McQuay, a legend and leader in the reining horse and western performance industry. Through this encounter, Nic not only learned  new training methods, but also the business side of teaching, working with customers and managing a staff. This six-year experience provided Nic with a foundation for success. His accomplishments in Reining include being a multiple major event finalist at the NRHA Derby, the NRBC and the NRHA Futurity with lifetime earnings of $26,000. His calm demeanor and natural ability with reading horses is well-respected by all those around him.
