Sandy Collier has the unique distinction of being the first and only woman to win the National Reined Cowhorse Snaffle Bit Futurity. She is a multiple NRCHA and AQHA World Champion, and she was reserve limit/intermediate open futurity champion at the 1997 NRHA Reining Futurity. Sandy is an NRCHA AAA and AQHA judge, and she has been inducted into the NRCHA and the Cowgirl Hall of Fame. According to Sandy, her lifelong passion for horses began “when my cells started to divide.” She spent the first third of her career as a veteran three day eventer on the East Coast, and then she turned her focus to reiners and cowhorses. Sandy’s diverse knowledge and success in various disciplines, her keen understanding of how horses think and learn, and her graceful riding and concise presentation make her an internationally renowned clinician. Her book Reining Essentials and instructional DVD's help horse enthusiasts create a more supple and balanced horse, and they teach viewers how to improve their reining and cowhorse showing skills. Competitors on all levels and disciplines seek to develop her signature polish in their own performance horses. Sandy lives in Santa Maria, California where she operates a training stable and instructs her non-pros.
