Since then, he has been changing people’s lives through his 16-year run television show (Discovering the Horseman Within), nationwide 3-day horsemanship clinics, 3-week apprenticeship programs, trial rider university clinics and special appearances at large expos & events. He still carries with him the passion and conviction he had as a young boy. Living his life horseback has proven to be the ultimate way for McNabb to reach out to people and their horses.
Ken creates a unique environment where each horse is trained using gentle methods and the rider is coached to become their personal best. Ken’s faith in Christ, along with his commitment to strong family values and patriotism, help make him the kind of speaker/trainer people enjoy.
Together, Ken, his wife DeeDee, and their two sons Kurt and Trent live in Lovell, Wyoming, where they are dedicated as a family to teaching others to dream bigger, ride taller and live happier. They own and operate their own working ranch and prepare horses for the Annual Diamond-McNabb Ranch Horse Sale, which is in its 15th year.
