The Ferrante Family has been training horses for over 150 years. George's grandfather was born in Firenze, Italy.  His father Joe Ferrante trained, worked & handled horses throughout his life as well as becoming well known in the Rodeo arena.  Joe, was born the day World War I ended, November 11, 1918.  He started rodeoing 20 years later and has been at it ever since.

Growing up around horses was natural in the Ferrante family.  And at age 8, George started his on-screen career as a stunt rider in Disney's "Spin & Marty" Episodes (shown at right, horsing around on the set and below, with Annette Funicello), as well as "Westward Ho the Wagons".

Appearing on screen and off in rodeos, George came into his own as a professional horse trainer and showman.  George is now a NCHA Cutting Horse Judge, who is well known in the United States, Canada and Italy for his cutting, horsemanship clinics and consulting. His students have won current world titles in both open and non-pro competitions.

George met and married Kathie and have two daughters, Kimberly, and Josie. They show in cutting and rein cow horse shows.  Kathie is also an accomplished cutting and reined cow horse trainer with two world titles. A respected riding instructor whose students have won current world titles. She also is a NRCHA Judge.

Together they have trained a number of our own champion horses, including "Monta Docs Joe" (PCCHA open futurity cutting champion), "Monta Doc Cola" (NCHA derby cutting finalist), and "Monta Doc Marie" (PCCHA Open Breeders Classic, PCCHA, lassic, Reon Classic Finalist).

The Ferrante's have also trained other champion horses, including "Cutters Smart Star" (NRCHA Gold & Silver Lt. Open Hackamore champion), "Ima Chex Coyote" (NRCHA Amatuer Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion), and "Yellers Golden Lilly" (NRCHA Youth Bridle Champion), plus many other show winners.
