Professional’s Choice is proud to support Bob Avila, second time World’s Greatest Horseman title holder, in bringing back his immensely popular training clinics - the horse world is buzzing with the news! It’s been years since horse lovers have been able to soak up advice from the master. Avila, along with fellow world champion trainer Al Dunning, is ready to share his secrets with the rest of the equine universe.
“I’ve learned a lot over the past several years,” said Avila of Temecula, Calif., who was also crowned World’s Greatest Horseman in 2000. “We’re going to start a new chapter here and we’ll be going to a number of expos.”
The initial clinic will take place June 8-10 during the Western States Horse Expo in Sacramento, Calif., (site of the Magnificent 7 All-Around Stock Horse Championship, won by Avila last year). Amazingly, admission to Avila and Dunning’s twice daily, hour-long horsemanship sessions is included with your expo ticket.
“Between Al and I, well, the knowledge we have is incredible,” Avila said. “I honestly don’t think anyone has ever been able to offer what we’ll be demonstrating at these clinics.”
“Quite simply, we can talk the talk and walk the walk, because we’ve proven it. I’ve wanted to do this for years and I’m excited to meet people and share our knowledge and experiences.”

Avila, and his “talented, gritty, physical” horse Light N Fine, won what Avila calls “the Ironman of all horse competitions” during the National Reined Cow Horse Association’s annual Worlds Greatest Horseman competition in Stephenville, Texas. “Personally, this is probably the most gratifying title to win,” Avila said. “You’re out there with all your peers, and it’s a grueling competition because you have to be good at every event.” Those events include herd work, rein work, steer stopping and cow work.
Avila has earned nearly 40 world champion and reserve titles during his $1.5 million career, and for the past 20 years Professional’s Choice has been there every step of the way. The Bob Avila Collection by Professional’s Choice currently includes 14 styles of bits, spurs and many other products; Avila never trains or competes without them.
“I’ve had a tremendous partnership with Professional’s Choice through my professional career,” said Avila, who is involved in all research, design and development of his Professional’s Choice product line. “The quality is simply the best. They thoroughly test their products on both everyday and performance horses, so you know they are sound. Professional’s Choice products have always been there for me and never let me down.”
