Rodney Yost Horsemanship Demonstration
South of Hippodrome
Rodney Yost is a 4th generation South Dakota rancher who has been involved with the ranching and horse customs his entire life. He's been horseback since he was a baby in diapers on his family's ranch, started training ponies at the age of 10, and trained his first horse at the age of 13. Since then, he has become one of the top horse trainers and clinicians in South Dakota and throughout the Midwest. Over the past few years, Rodney has instructed many horsemanship clinics and demonstrations for all ages and riding levels. His unique training style and sense of humor have made him a sought after horsemanship clinician throughout the United States and Canada. He is the first and only 5-time champion of the Crosswinds Ranch Colt Training Challenge that is held at Michigan State University every Spring, and has won multiple Ranch Horse Colt Futurity competitions. He has become known for creating a relationship with his horses to produce extremely supple, well-mannered, and responsive horses that are capable of many disciplines.
