Was incredible to catch up with Cole again, learning more about his adventures and growing up with Craig Cameron as his dad!

About Cole: Cole Cameron was raised in the cowboy and western way of life. Born in Arizona, raised in Texas and son to world champion and Hall of Fame cowboy, Craig Cameron. Cole has spent his life on family ranches in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona and was always a top student, as well as a highly gifted athlete. Cole was a standout 3-sport athlete in High School, earning all-district honors in football, winning a state championship and earning a scholarship to play college football at Texas A&M University. Upon graduating with his bachelors in Agriculture at Texas A&M, Cole decided to pursue graduate school earning a rodeo scholarship and a spot on the Texas A & M rodeo team.  Cole competed two years for the Texas A&M rodeo team and competed twice at the College National Finals in Casper, Wyoming.

After finishing his college rodeo career, Cole continued to follow his rodeo dream on the pro circuit. In 2011, he won the Cowboys Professional Rodeo Association in Steer Wrestling. Cole, who is now a highly competitive team roper, and continues to work and learn with many of the top horse trainers competing in multiple disciplines including, cutting, team roping, and reined cow horse.

Cole, who was raised in a true colt starting atmosphere, is truly the gold standard when it comes to this discipline. Cole lives, breathes, and practices the art of colt starting that has been passed down the Cameron family from father to son, working many training horses each and every day. Capturing the essence of his training philosophy, Cole says, “From good beginnings, good things tend to come naturally.”

Episode 10: Interview with Anna Blake

Episode 10: Interview with Anna Blake

August 30, 2021

It was a lot of fun (and thought-provoking!) to visit with Anna, after having met her at Equidays here in New Zealand in '18. She has such a way with horses and words! 

Anna Blake is a horse advocate, trainer, international clinician, and award-winning author of six books. Anna believes affirmative training principles build a Relaxed & Forward foundation that crosses over all riding disciplines in the same way that the understanding of Calming Signals benefits all equine communication. We hold a profound concern for the horse’s mental and physical welfare.
“It’s serious training but I keep a light heart because horses like us that way.” At home at Infinity Farm, on the windy treeless prairie of Colorado, with a multi-species herd of horses, llamas, goats, dogs, and our moral compass, Edgar Rice Burro.
