Reining Rider

Clint Allen

Clint Allen is a native of New Zealand. He had no experience in showing cutting horses, but, as the son of a farrier, he grew up around horses and competed in various disciplines such as reining and western pleasure. It wasn`t long after Allen`s arrival into the performance horse world that he knew what he would be doing for the rest of his life. He fell in love with the sport and, from day one, committed himself to the industry and his success.

His first major victory came in 2001 when he showed Merada Clone to the Limited Open Reserve Championship at the NCHA Futurity. In 2002, Clint won more than $55,000. The following year, he nearly doubled his earnings with numerous triumphs, including an Open Championship at the Bonanza Cutting and a third place finish in the Open 4-Year-Old finals at the NCHA Summer Spectacular.

In 2004, Clint`s career skyrocketed. He won more than $200,000 and claimed the prestigious Open victory at the Breeder`s Invitational on one of his favorite horses of all times, Aristo Katz.

Clint is dedicated to promoting the sport of cutting to the best of his ability, both nationally and internationally. He is a AAA judge and conducts clinics across the nation, as well as worldwide.

Clint and his wife, Shayle, were married in 2001 and have three children. Their twin girls, Kate and Addison, were born in June 2007, and their son, Max, was welcomed to the family in January 2009.

Clint currently accepts outside horses and will schedule private lessons by appointment only. For information on lessons or having Clint conduct clinics in your area contact:
