Since Todd's first forays into the show pen, Todd Sommers has had a tremendous amount of success as a professional trainer in both the Western Pleasure and Reining industries. His attention to detail and consistent training program have made him one of the top money earners in the business.
Originally from Indiana, Todd headed to Texas after graduating from high school with the goal of becoming a horse trainer. He landed his first training job working for the Tommy Manion Ranch in Aubrey. After working with other top professionals, Todd went out on his own in 1988.
Today he and his wife Kelly own and operate a ranch near Whitesboro, Texas. Along the way, Todd has had the opportunity to train and show many great horses, including Von Reminic, Don't Skip Charlie, Seven S Flashy Zipper, Cookie Leaguer, Slide Me To The Bar, Buenonic Chex, Hes Dun His Time, Cattitude, Don't Skip Zip, Remin Whiz, Spooks Rey Jay, and Docs Wound Up.
Todd has won many Championships, as well as multiple NRHA aged events. Todd focuses much of his program towards the 3 year old futurities and the category II events.
