Growing up on the family ranch in Kansas, Harry developed early on an uncanny
connection to horses. This connection became the foundation for his unique approach to
horsemanship “…from the horse’s point of view.”
Riding and working with horses followed him throughout his school years. Following
his graduation from Kansas State University with a degree in Animal Sciences, he
showcased his talents with a roman riding act. It wasn’t long before people started to sit
up and take notice of the remarkable results he achieved with horses. At a neighbor’s
urging, he started training horses for the public. It did not seem to matter the breed of
horse or the discipline for which it was intended—Harry calmly and purposefully
approached each with the sure knowledge that it could do what he was asking. The
horses became his testimony and a career was born. It wasn’t long before the friends and neighbors expanded into the public at large, who asked if he would share his knowledge in a clinic format. That was over twenty years ago. His popularity has continued to grow, a fairly remarkable feat given that he has become known mainly by word of mouth. Today, his clinics are conducted throughout the United States and abroad.
Getting to know Harry, you discover that he is a man of many talents. In addition to his horsemanship, he can spin a rope as well as a yarn, and has recently added “award winning photographer” to his resume. The characteristics that have made him successful as a horseman also lend themselves well to his photography. He invites you to visit his photo galleries at www.harrywhitneyphotography.com.
