Clint grew up in Mississippi and was born with a love for horses. After high school he headed out west to soak up all the knowledge he could get to build his horsemanship skills.
Over the last two decades he has worked to improve and advance his horsemanship skills. On this journey, Clint has been blessed with the opportunity to ride with some truly gifted horsemen. Those who have had the most influence on him are Bryan Neubert, Joe Wolter and Bill Smith of the Wyo Quarter Horse Ranch in Thermopolis, Wyoming.
He spent several years working on ranches in Colorado. Clint first met Bryan Neubert when he did a clinic on the ranch where Clint worked. A friendship came out of that meeting that began to shape the way Clint related to the horse. The experience he gained starting and riding colts and cowboying in Colorado opened up an opportunity to work for the Bartlett Ranch. First in Wyoming and then in Texas where he started colts that went into the cutting program and rode the ranch geldings in preparation for the WYO Quarter Horse Sale each year. While in Texas, he met Joe Wolter and was able to ride extensively with him and learn even more about how to really work from where the horse is at. He continued to build onto his experience by working on one of the largest cattle ranches in Southeast Oregon. While there he was in charge of starting colts for the buckaroos, readying ranch geldings to be sold and overseeing the breeding program.
In 2010, Clint came to Fallon, Nevada to be part of the Hutchings Performance Horse Program. His job was to start the 2 yr. old colts and bring along the older geldings for their sale that takes place each year in late summer/early fall. Since that time, he has gone out on his own to form Clint Weaver Horsemanship.
In May 2014, Clint and his wife, Ashley and their three girls, Brennan, Abigail and Carley Griffin moved their business to Dixie Valley a little over an hour from Lovelock, NV. The family runs a few cows along with their horse business. Clint starts colts year round and occasionally takes in older horses with issues. He also conducts a limited number of clinics each year.
Clint believes the best way to advance one’s horsemanship is to slow down and focus on the foundation. He has learned to break down “the pieces” of horsemanship, work on them separately, then weave them back together. His approach to horsemanship forms a bridge between technique and timing and feel. He has gained understanding from riding the “tough ones” and feels called to help people with their horses and share what he continues to learn along the way.
