Main Competitor – Ken McNabb

“I am honored and excited to be invited back to Road to the Horse 2020. I am looking forward to the camaraderie and good natured competitiveness that it offers. With Western Horseman at the helm and the theme of Back to the Ranch, I believe this competition fits me like a glove. I am thrilled to be chosen as one of the three representatives for the ranching industry and I am eager to take our colt starting program that we use here on the ranch and present it to the judges at Road to the Horse. Until then, May God Bless the Trails You Ride” Ken NcNabb

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 (Discovering the Horseman Within airing on RFD-TV), nationwide clinics, 3-week apprenticeship programs 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 faith in Christ, along with his commitment to strong family values and patriotism, help make him the kind of speaker/trainer people enjoy.

Together, Ken, his wife DeeDee, and their two sons Kurt and Trent live in Lovell, Wyoming where they are dedicated as a family to teaching others to dream bigger, ride taller and live happier. They own and operate their own working ranch and prepare horses for the Annual Diamond-McNabb Ranch Horse Sale, which is in its 11th year.
