Beth Clemons was born and raised in Carlsbad, California, and was first introduced to horses at the age of seven. Beth fell in love with horses from her first ride and quickly became the girl who would jump anyone's pony, doing the job well and gaining experience with every ride. Her mom and older sister rode hunter/jumpers and dressage, but Beth was drawn to the versatility of the Quarter Horse and the discipline required of western pleasure riding. Beth began to compete at local open shows and the AQHA shows hosted in Southern California, learning from everyone she had the opportunity to meet and observe in her early years of riding.
In an effort to learn more about her sport, Beth worked with Dana Hokana. Although she was in college, she spent every hour of free time riding and working with horses. Beth also worked with Jason Martin for a summer and Tonya Brown for four years to further hone her skills before establishing Beth Clemons Performance Horses in 2013.
Beth's love of horses is reflected in the tremendous respect she affords each horse. She enjoys training the all-around, but her speciality is creating a solid western pleasure foundation to allow horses to thrive in other events. Beth approaches each horse and client with patience and honesty, striving to teach horse and rider alike to relax, learn, and enjoy each ride.
Today Beth works with a variety of wonderful horses in her barn--from those just beginning work under saddle to seasoned show horses. And although Beth has firmly established herself in the Quarter Horse world, hunter/jumper trainers still send her their small ponies for tune ups.
