See Who's new to NYSHC Youth: 
Tyler Graham became a NYSHC Youth Member when he came to WNY EquiFest 2018 to participate in the Cutting Horse Presentation run by Amber Roberts of Upstate Cow Horse Productions. When asked how long he has been riding, he quips "my mother was riding when she was pregnant with me and I have been riding ever since." He started riding trail and rodeo horses but seems to have found his calling in Cow Horses.
Tyler is graduating from Bloomfield Central High School in June and then will be accepting an apprenticeship position in Silt, Colorado at Ralston Ranch where he will be grooming, warming up horses and learning cow horse training.
As he is taking steps to gain knowledge for starting a career in cow horse training, Tyler expresses his gratitude to those who have helped him along the way: his family, Rose Hill Ranch's Jack and Emma Minteer, Amber Roberts from Upstate Cow Horse Productions and Shaw Farm Production's Beth Shaw, who produces Ranch Horse Sorting, and Team Penning Association events.
Tyler will be sending occasional updates and hopefully some pictures so we can look forward to seeing more later.
