|Ride with Molly!
Thank you for your interest in my online lessons and private clinics and lessons! I really enjoy working with people and horses of all ages. I have over 30 years of professional barrel racing experience (yes- I got my pro card when I was 10!). I also have taught barrel racing clinics for 20 years. With all that experience comes my ability to help you and your horse become a team. Whether it be a hurdle that you are facing with your horse, or a simple interest in more barrel racing knowledge, I am happy and willing to help you. You will enjoy the laid back atmosphere of the lessons and also my techniques catered especially for you and your horse. If you would like to book a private lesson or clinic in person, please contact me at (254) 203-0293, or email at email@example.com. I live in Stephenville, TX and have a limited number of overnight pens and hook ups available if you are hauling from afar. I look forward to working with you.

|My love for barrel racing, people, and horses has inspired me to teach the secrets to my success! At my clinics, it is my goal to teach students three things about barrel racing: How horsemanship directly affects your success; How to develop a winning practice routine for you and your horse; and How to stay on the track to success!
Throughout the clinic, I will show students and their horses the steps to follow and achieve quick, snappy turns and make their runs more consistent. I teach the horsemanship traditions that I use everyday on the horses that I ride and compete on! Horsemanship is not something that you learn overnight! I feel like I am always learning and studying horsemanship, and I probably will forever!! I have had some great teachers, from my family, to my idols, to my great horses...
Let me tell you a little about where I come from! I was born in Pincher Creek, AB, andthen moved to Montana when I was 5. My parents, Chuck and Julie Swanson competed in rodeo as saddle bronc rider and barrel racer. My dad competed several times at the NFR, and then worked on ranches riding and breaking horses. My mom was a Reserve Canadian Champ. Barrel Racer, as well as a jockey. She worked on ranchesbreaking horses and training barrel horses as well. My grand father was a rancher and jockey using his gentle horsemanship to handle his high-spirited thorobreds and use them for ranch horses.
|My parents instilled an intense competitive streak in me (mixed with a little stubbornness!) and taught me the traditions of the horsemanship that has run in our family for generations! Along with this knowledge, I have strived to learn all that I can from many different horsemen (and women). Some of my idols have been: Charmayne James- for her admirable positive attitude and horsemanship that carried her to many world titles; Jerry Diaz (the Mexican Charro) - for his amazing horsemanship; and Clint Johnson- for his great competitive strength and class as a champion.
Horses have probably taught me the most, and I have been very lucky to sit on some great ones! My most precious horses have been: my very first pony Brownie (a Welch/Quarter Horse); Blackie (my first 'big' horse); Speedy (the first horse that I trained); Pecan (Brownie's baby girl- 3 NFR's $200,000); Bullet (Brownie's baby boy- died before his 1st NFR); Quaker (the first trained horse that I bought-3NFR's $200,000... died in 2002); Shadow (Blackie's baby boy- 2 NFR's $200,000); Firewater Kat (NFR- $150,000 earnings, CFR mulitiple round winner); Wittle (Calgary Stampede finalist, $150,000 earnings); and now Missy (2012- $55,000).
I have also had the privilege of borrowing some great horses to win championships such as JD owned by Sue Smith (Olympic Gold Medal in 2002 Olympic Command Performance Rodeo), Slider owned by Shali Lord (2004 National Finals Rodeo Average), and Princess owned by Chani Payne (helped to win National Finals Rodeo Res. Average).
I am excited to share my tips on barrel racing and book new schools, so feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have!
