Amos Abrahamson lives near Maple Creek, SK where he operates Diamond J Performance Horses. Amos grew up on a ranch south of Saskatoon, Sk.
As a young boy, his grandfather bought him a horse which began his passion for horses. Amos started his first colt when he was 15 years old.
After graduating high school, Amos took a job riding at the Bitter Lake Community Pasture near Maple Creek, SK. Here he learned the skills of training top notch ranch and cow horses. Through the years, Amos has had the privilege of riding with and gaining skills from many seasoned cowboys. He has also had the opportunity to apprentice under Clint Christianson and work for Walter Quarter Horses.
Amos shows in both reined cowhorse and cutting horse competitions. His horses have consistently topped the market making them in high demand. Most recently his three year old was the highest selling prospect at the 2016 Medicine Hat horse sale. And his two year olds claiming both high selling and reserve high selling two year old at the 2016 Ranch Country Horse Sale in Maple Creek.
Amos believes in starting horses young and slowly building a foundation on which each horse can reach their true potential. The combination of his years cowboying and his experience in the show pen give Amos a unique perspective on training and showing horses successfully.
Amos is excited to be part of the Equine Expo and looks forward to presenting his training methods to the audience. You can visit his Facebook page 'Diamond J Performance Horses' or Phone (306)661-8191 for more information.
