Matt's Career Highlights:
While Matt Mill's first time in the stirrups was at age 9, it was his internship with NRHA Professional Dell Hendricks at age 18 that defined what Matt was going to be doing for a long time to come. Since his first job with working for Dell, Matt has gone on to open his own operation, currently out of Bar A Ranch in Cave Creek, AZ.
2006 was a standout year for Matt when he won the USEF Reining Championship in Lexington, Kentucky. Riding Easy Otie Whiz, a stallion by top sire Topsail Whiz, Matt won the event with a score of 231.5, winning him a seat on the team at the World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany. At the World Equestrian Games, Matt and "Easy" scored a 224.5, earning the Team USA Gold Medal and placing fourth in the Individual competition. Matt's success in the show pen has continued since 2006 winning the Jr. Reining Circuit Championship at the Sun Circuit Horse Horse Show, taking the Open Futurity Reserve Champion ribbon at the High Roller Reining Classic and much more.
