Clint Allen Accepts Position as Resident Trainer for McDavid Cutting Horses


Clint Allen Cutting Horses is thrilled to announce a new direction for our training program. As of Feb. 18, 2013, Clint will begin training for David and Stacie McDavid of Fort Worth, Texas. The McDavids are longtime supporters of the cutting horse industry and have become well-known for their successful training and breeding operation stemming from their great stallions, Hickorys Indian Pep, Widows Freckles and the late Hes A Peptospoonful, a $4 million sire that ranked No.7 as the leading sire of 2012.


Aside from ranking No.5 as leading owners in cutting for 2012, the McDavids have remained pioneers in the business through innovative incentive tactics such as the "Spoonful Million Dollar Bonus" and the "Double Down Bonus," which will pay $1 million to any horse by "Spoonful" that wins the 2014 NCHA Open Futurity, and will double the earnings of any horses sired by one of their three stallions that win the Non-Pro and/or Amateur classes at the NCHA Futurity.


The McDavids have offered this incentive since 2009. "I couldn't ask for a better opportunity," Clint said about the transition. "The McDavids have done great things in this business and show continued commitment to the perseverance of cutting. I'm excited to see what the future holds for this partnership."


Clint will continue to train a select group of outside horses at the McDavids Weatherford ranch. For more information on the McDavids program visit
