Dee Butterfield taught her first barrel racing and horsemanship clinic when she was 18 years old, and has enjoyed teaching ever since. She has devoted her life to making a difference in how riders approach their horses as well as improving their riding and horsemanship skills. Dee believes in putting a very solid foundation on the prospect that can be drawn from throughout the barrel training. Everything the horse needs to know on the barrel pattern he has learned in the dry work. The clinics draw a wide range of students from the beginner to the professional level.
