Welcome to American Horse Talk!

Our mission is simple: we want to connect people who love our country and have a connection to horses with businesses, stories and other websites who have these things in common. It all started with Alabama Horse Talk, then grew into Southern Horse Talk, (which is still alive and well, please visit) and now we are very excited to present AMERICAN HORSE TALK.

We are looking for stories to share, events to promote and businesses to help grow. It's easy to get started, just click on one of the links below.

We have so many more things in store, so be sure and bookmark this site and join us on social media!

We are always talking about something - join the official American Horse Talk Group and get in on the conversation!

You could win something, too!

Meet Road to the Horse Competitor Nick Dowers ...

While many things set Nick Dowers apart from his peers, his unique training philosophy clearly tops the list. Dowers began riding at a young age, using horses on his family’s Triple D Ranches in the Great Basin. This background instilled in him a sincere appreciation for the horse as his partner, as well as a belief that work outside of the arena is crucial. Nick Dowers embodies the ideals of Western heritage, and he has dedicated his life and career to sharpening his horsemanship skills. He believes the best way to teach a horse is by harnessing its mind and creating a positive relationship. As a NRCHA Open Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion, his philosophy focuses on blending natural horsemanship and performance horse training techniques to develop a balanced, confident athlete. Strong family values and a sincere love for horses have earned Dowers the respect of his fellow horsemen. The Dyer, Nevada, native has trained under the likes of Bryan Neubert, Joe Wolter, Bill Van Norman, Andrea Fappani and Annie Reynolds. His lifetime earnings exceed $584,000.
Nick met his future wife Jackie in high school. After graduating, Jackie went to the University of Nevada, Reno for Nursing - only an hour from where Nick was attending school - and they maintained a long-distance relationship through her schooling and later his traveling for work, and were married in 2006. Nick and Jackie welcomed daughter, Tuli, in 2008 followed by son, Crue, in 2010. The couple had their 3rd child, daughter Jovi in the summer of 2012. www.NickDowers.com

Accomplishments
• Lifetime NRCHA earnings of over $584,00
• 2011 NRCHA Stallion Stakes Int & Lmt Champion
• 2013 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Open World Champion
