Lee Smith, Colt Starting

Lee has been conducting horsemanship clinics throughout the world since 1991. She and her husband, Mark, instruct nearly 40 clinics a year around the world as well as run cow-calf operation and raise Quarter horses at their Diamond S Ranch near Wickenburg, Arizona. Lee is a gifted and eloquent teacher who has extraordinary insight into horses and people.

Lee leads people on a pathway of discovery to the essential elements of horsemanship. She helps them to unlock their potential to understand the mind, body and spirit of the horse using what naturally happens, and then shows them how to appreciate and build upon the incredible moments of harmony that are possible.

“I’m just excited to continue to share some of the things that have made a difference in my horsemanship and my life as a whole,” Lee says. “So I’m really thrilled to present at this event. I love that it gives young individuals a way to have access to some talented artists, and the funds to continue to learn from them ! “I just think it’s a tremendous opportunity for us all”.
