Clayton is not only a talented horseman, he is the true definition of a cowboy. He was raised in Montana on his family's cattle ranch. Clayton grew up managing a variety of tasks such as branding, doctoring, roping, and farming; along with riding and training horses.
Welcome to Edsall Performance Horses, where raising and training well rounded performance horses is our passion. As a successful NRCHA, NCHA and NSHA trainer, Clayton believes that making well rounded performance horses involves just as much outside of the arena as it does in the show pen. Clayton offers a balanced training program suitable for any level of horse and rider.
Clayton's passion for horse training began at a young age, and at 17 he decided to leave the ranch to further his knowledge of horse training. He studied and worked with some of the best horsemen around such as Joe Wolter, Brian Neubert, Tink Elordi, Ray Hunt and Tom Dorrance. Clayton now owns and operates a successful and well rounded training program in Oakdale, CA.
Clayton offers a variety of lessons and we welcome Non-Pro's of all levels! If you wish to schedule a clinic or lesson with Clayton, or would like more information about colt starting and training, please visit the contact page!
