Colin Fitzpatrick

Colin Fitzpatrick makes his home at Caballo Rojo Ranch and is the head trainer of the reining horses at the ranch.  Colin was born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada. At 7 years old his passion for horses became evident to his parents and they helped him to become more involved with horses. If you were to ask Colin he would say that he always knew he wanted to be a horse trainer when he grew up.  Colin has been exposed to some of the very best trainers in the Reining and Reined Cow Horse industry. He has worked for  a number of years with great reining horse trainers such as, Francois Gauthier, Brian Bell, and Dell Hendricks. He also worked for a year alongside multiple world champion trainer and rider Jay McLaughlin at the Aaron Ranch in Texas. Colin has made the Finals at all the major events, including the NRHA Futurity, NRHA Derby, and NRBC Classic. In 2015 he was Level 1 Open Reserve Champion at the NRBC Open Classic. Caballo Rojo Ranch is proud to have Colin training all our Reining Horses at the ranch and to be the home training facility for Colin and his team.

“It takes a tremendous amount of patience and focus to train horses to reach the highest level of their ability. It is more than just a job to me, it is my passion”
