George Neufeld

( NCHA professional cutting horse trainer)

George owns and operates George Neufeld Cutting Horses & Stallion Services,   out of his private training facility in Foothills, AB. bordering the southern city limits of Calgary, AB. Canada. On 380+ acres of rolling land he pastures cattle along-side his band of broodmares.

For George, his passion for horses is life-long. Breeding, raising and training horses he enjoys nothing more than starting and developing performance horse prospects into show horses.

George spent many of his career years training cutting horses in Fort Worth, Texas, where he gained more knowledge and experience riding with respected and world renowned professionals. Building from personal experiences George curated his own style of showing and horsemanship for developing two and three year olds and honed his skill set for starting colts. Horses that he started and trained went on in their performance careers to accumulate lifetime earnings in excess of three million dollars.

George is a multiple Limited Aged Event Open finalist with career highlights both state-side, and in Canada. Competing at prestigious major events held at the Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas, such as the NCHA Super Stakes Ltd Open and the NCHA Derby Ltd Open. While showing in Texas he also made the Open Finals at premier aged events like the Waco Futurity, the East Texas Derby, Abilene Spectacular, and qualified 3x to compete in the NCHA Western Nationals.

In Canada, George has enjoyed success as a Calgary Stampede Open Classic finalist, a Canadian Supreme Open Derby finalist and also a 2016 NCHA Calgary Stampede Open Mercuria Finalist on his own stallion, Reys From Heaven.

The stallion Reys From Heaven is synonymous with the name George Neufeld. As a long yearling, George purchased “Rey” at the 2008 Summer Spectacular sale in Fort Worth, TX and the rest is history. The 2007 red roan stallion sired by Dual Rey is known for his quiet demeanor and intense cow-sense.

Today, George is training and riding Rey’s young offspring and is pleased about the talent and diversity Reys From Heaven progeny is exhibiting. From RFH 1st foal crop, “A More Rey” and “Spring Reynz” are now money earners in NRCHA and NCHA events, respectively.

George, dedicated to the sport enjoys teaching and coaching cutting horse riders. When competing at local week-end shows he can often be seen helping coach and turn back for those in, and outside of his own barn. George, alongside his wife, Janet have solidified their lives in the cutting horse industry in North America. With no plans of slowing down they are currently breeding and raising some of today’s top western performance horses in Canada

“I am so glad that the Trainer Showcase is back again this year! These clinics gave me the chance to ride with a number of highly experienced and knowledgeable trainers - an opportunity that I may not have had otherwise. As someone new to the sport I couldn’t have asked for a greater opportunity. My riding, my ability to show my horse and my understanding of the sport all improved. Overall it was a great experience, lots of fun and lots learned!” - Jenna Porisky

”It was with great pleasure when I saw CACHC decided to invite various trainers for a one day Trainer Showcase. As a relatively new rider to the cutting world, I found the trainers to not only be professional, but eager to point out things that I could work on to be a better rider. I’m really looking forward to the 2020 “Trainer Showcase” to get more tools for my toolbox.” - Doug Grant

“The Trainer Showcase allowed me to practice cutting fresh cattle out of a herd with the guidance and knowledge from some of Canada’s greatest trainers. An experience that was absolutely gratifying.“ - Gord Schmidt
