Meet Jaton! Like most young kids, Jaton wanted nothing more than to be a cowboy. Being the grandson of Ray Hunt, Jaton was given the unique opportunity to pursue that dream. At the age of 15, he started his first colt with his Grandpa Ray, and from that point on his real education would begin. The majority of his summers throughout 2002 – 2007 were spent traveling down the clinic trail with Ray and Carolyn Hunt. Simultaneously he worked for the Van Norman ranch in Tuscarora, Nevada and the Petan Ranch in northern Nevada.
In 2008 Jaton started working for renowned cowhorse trainer Annie Reynolds. For three years, Jaton started, trained and showed some of the best equine athletes in the world. Since then, Jaton has gone on to start nine non-pro Snaffle Bit Futurity finalists, seven open Snaffle Bit Futurity finalists, and has garnered $130,000 in NRCHA earnings. Jaton also rode the stallion Very Black Magic to the two-rein championship at the Reno Snaffle Bit Futurity in 2019, and has won numerous futurities and derbies in the Northwest on multiple different horses.
Jaton has conducted clinics in Australia, Europe, Dubai, and throughout the United States to help people expand on their horsemanship skills. From 2014 – 2019, Jaton played a large role in the Legacy of Legends event where he not only started colts, but demonstrated his cowhorse knowledge and ability to take horses into competition. Remaining true to his roots, Jaton utilizes everything he has learned from his Grandpa Ray, and puts it to use in every aspect of his horsemanship, from colts to competition.
