Joe Ruiz is Owner and Trainer at JOE RUIZ TRAINING, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Having been raised on a ranch in Arizona, he had many opportunities to learn how to successfully work with horses and cattle. Joe and his father were the team to beat at the ropings.
After graduating from Central Arizona College, Joe's education continued at BYU, where he lettered in rodeo.
In 1973 Joe decided to take a look at another aspect of the equine industry, horse showing. Little did he know how much that one show would change his life.
Becoming self-employed as a craftsman of custom made Bits & Spurs and a Professional Horse Trainer, with a new interest in Reining, Joe found himself winning his way to the top.
You can find Joe studying, with a willingness to learn. He is not afraid of new ideas, and is always looking for a better way, as he continues to slide into the Winners Circle.
