About the Author

Benny Guitron is the fifth of Felix Guitron Sr.'s six children. Young Guitron, inspired as a youth by the great horsemen of his day-Jimmy Williams, Harold Farren, Red Neal, Don Dodge and perhaps most significantly, vaquero trainer, Tony Amaral Sr.-became fired by a dream. Determined to achieve his dream, Guitron set out to be like those horsemen and to train horses in ways honorable to tradition. Al Dunning is credited with 32 world-championship and reserve-championship titles. The knowledge and passion he shares in his clinics, videos, and lessons have molded not only average students, but also some of today's most successful professional horse trainers. Dunning's ability to reach people comes from his love of horses and out of respect to the mentors in his own life.
