The word “limitations” has never been in the vocabulary of Scott Amos. Even after losing the lower portion of his left leg in a tractor accident at just 6 years old, Scott Amos has gone on to fulfill his dreams of becoming an accomplished horseman.
From playing football and baseball to roping and riding saddle broncs, Scott has always had a competitive streak.
At 15, Scott won the All Around Cowboy title in Junior Rodeo and was later nationally recognized for superior academics and community involvement.
Following several apprenticeships with many renowned horse trainers, Scott began his own training operation in the early 90’s. That program has now blossomed into not only a successful program for Scott and his horses, but also for numerous youth, amateur and non-pro riders. Scott was recently featured on RDF-TV’s “The Ride,” and makes regular appearances in many of the performance horse industry’s leading publications, such as Quarter Horse News and The Cutting Horse Chatter.
Scott and his wife, Rebecca, have three children and reside in Loma, Colorado. When
not horseback, Scott enjoys anything outdoors, including hunting, fishing and camping.
