Paul Humphrey: Barrel Horse Trainer
10-time European barrel racing champion and veteran barrel horse trainer.
Paul Humphrey is a 10-time European barrel racing champion and veteran barrel horse trainer. Paul is known for helping riders and horses overcome problems with the first barrel.
Paul got his start training reining horses but his love for speed took him to the barrels. Paul currently trains out of Pilot Point, Texas and gives clinics all over America and the world. He is instrumental in exporting and running top horses in Italy.
“Barrel racing is not a tug-of-war event and it’s not about changing bits every time you enter the arena; it’s about working and teaching the horse how to use their body correctly around the barrel,” Paul said. “This involves the face, shoulders, ribs, hip, hind legs, front legs and the rider’s hands, feet, seat and an understanding of how to work the horse’s body.”
Paul Humphrey has produced an educational DVD titled Breaking The Mold With Paul.
