Ted has been riding since he was a child on his parents farm in Connecticut. He came up through the youth ranks riding all disciplines of horses, eventually focusing on roping, which led to a scholarship to Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. After college he moved home where he started training showing, and judging at AQHA and NRHA events. Aside from judging, Ted has also been active in the decision making, growth, and development of cutting on state, regional, and national levels. He has been a NCHA National Director for 16 years, serving on many committees, as well as being an officer for the Florida Cutting Horse Association for the past 16 years, of which 8 he served as President.
In 1986 he relocated to New Smyrna Beach, Florida, where he trained until 2007, at which time he built a new facility in Seville, Florida. The new facility is equipped with RV Hookups and plenty of space to accommodate his many clients, that come from all over, to enojoy the friendly atmosphere. Ted offers cutting lessons, training, sales, and clinics.
Among his many NCHA accomplishments are 4 Top Ten World finishes, multiple National Championship finalists, dozens of affiliate wins; all of which led to his NCHA lifetime earnings of $394,507.50.
Although he enjoys riding and showing Ted has always been a coach at heart. Whith his guidance and support Ted's students have achieved numerous titles and championships, including Summer Spectacular Youth Champions and finalists, Augusta Futurity Champions and finalists, NCHA World Show Champion and finalists, multiple NCHA Eastern National Championships Youth, Amateur, and Non-Pro Champions and finalists.
