Brady Weaver didn’t start his equine career in cow horse, but rather on the backs of racehorses. He jockeyed and started horses for several years before he went to work for John McDonald cutting horses in California. There, he learned the California vaquero methods, then went to Arizona, working under Randy Paul and Dell Hendricks. He settled in Enterprise, Utah, in 2002, starting his training business.
Today, Weaver has $432,000-plus in National Reined Cow Horse Association earnings and is a 3A NRCHA judge, an American Quarter Horse Association judge and a National Cutting Horse Association judge. In the show pen, he’s won the 2018 Open Two Rein Reserve World Champion on SJR Reygun (Dual Rey x Playguns King Badger x Playgun), owned by Gary Ewell. He and the mare also paired up to earn fifth in the 2022 World’s Greatest Horseman Finals and earned the Open and Intermediate Open Derby win at the 2017 Stallion Stakes.
He and his wife, Megan, and their children are active in affiliate and premier cow horse events around the country.
