As Reed grew up, he never lost his wonder for the horse. Reed graduated from Sam Houston State in 2008 at this point he decided to get serious about his riding. He started following a gentleman named Buck Brannaman. This led him to many other great horseman including Pat Puckett, Joe Wolter, Peter Cambell and the list goes on. These horseman have helped open his eyes to the ways of the horse.
Reed admits there have been many teachers in his life and he owes his craft to them. That being said, Reed believes that he owes the art of his understanding to the horse. Reed can be heard saying "listen to the horse, he will tell you."
Reed believes in having patience with every horse, and knows it can't all be done in one day. He says the horse has no concept of time nor money, the horse physically doesn't have those parts of his brain. Reed doesn't believe in using the latest gimmick or bit to hurry a horse into compliance . Reed believes everything we can do with a horse has already been figured out, right and wrong, through his extensive studying of not only western horsemanship but many other disciplines.
He wants a partnership with the horse.
