Jon and Laura Ingram established Ingram Training Stable in 1979. Now, as Ingram Performance Horses, their experience delivers limitless possibilities for horses and riders who strive to be champions. The Ingram’s are true horsemen, whose expertise provide the competitive edge that today’s Reiner’s require for success.
Jon grew up in Southern California with the traditions of the California Reined Cowhorse, which emphasize lightness and finesse. Jon trained his first horse when he was just ten years old and hasn’t looked back since! He attended Cal Poly in Pomona, California majoring in Animal Husbandry. He worked with the renowned stock horse trainer, Ronnie Richards, in Southern California. Jon has shown working cow horses, cutting horses and reining horses successfully for over 30 years. By using his thorough training programs he improves horses from a variety of disciplines. He has earned nine world and national titles and has trained non-pro riders and their horses to become competitive partners at NRHA shows. Jon is a constant and enthusiastic student of anything equine and never quits learning or trying to improve his methods. He has supported and promoted the sport of reining for more than twenty years and was a founder and the first President of the Idaho Reining Horse Association. He continues to share his enthusiasm for the sport here in Florida. Jon is an excellent equine dentist and finds time in his busy schedule to perform equine dentistry on occasion.
Laura has shown Reined Cowhorses and Cutting horses and now enjoys competing in Non Pro & Prime-time classes when she can step away from barn management and office duties. She is the glue that binds the team at Ingram Performance Horses. Her commitment and passion for horses makes her an excellent barn manager.
Jon and Lauri have cultivated the sport of Reining through their family. They have three children and seven grandchildren.
