Michael Cooper

Michael Cooper never worked for a cutting horse trainer and literally came from nothing. He is from Missouri originally and learned about cutting when he traveled to Arkansas to visit relatives who happened to work for a cutting horse trainer. They offered to let Cooper work a cutting horse and he couldn’t believe what he was feeling. He learned by watching everything he could about cutting and even wore out training dvds. In 2009 Cooper was second at the NCHA Futurity. In 2011 he made the Futurity Finals on both his horses and placed third and fourth. Cooper highlights those as his most memorable achievements in the sport so far.
