Jimmy Bryant, 5th place finisher in the barrel racing at The American 2017, held a barrel racing and pole bending clinic in Killdeer.

He’s not only a competitor but a hands on clinician who educates in both events. Bryant isn’t someone that wants to be in the lime light. He is a horseman and competitor, and he wants to share his knowledge with those willing to learn.
He competes in around 250 events per year, he raises and donates money for charity, yet he still has time to travel around the country to coach and instruct cowboys and cowgirls of all ages.
This two-day event was extremely helpful for the attendees. One participant, Tana Staal, mentioned to the others at the clinic at the end of the first day, “This was really great! I feel like my horse is much better, and I’m a better rider.”
