Mark Buttsworth Training
The harder you work the luckier you get.

Mark Buttsworth is the undisputed king of the Cutouts. His remarkable success in this area is due to his ability to combine the discipline required for cutting and to transform it into the aggression needed for the campdraft arena. 

Mark Buttsworth's Story
+

Mark hails from a background more inclined to promote motor bikes than horses, but his love of horses and the competitive drive he exhibits has been a consuming passion. He has wanted no other interest or business and the drive Mark has to succeed and to improve himself is unequalled.

Mark ButtsworthHis equine career started with his hard earned savings of $100 which he invested in a neighbour’s unbroken colt.  From there he simply learnt from his mistakes.

He eventually bred a mare he had to a neighbour’s stallion and Firefly was the resultant foal. Mark suggests that Firefly was the turning point in his career. He won his first Open draft on her and she has been the foundation dam in his breeding program. Her foals have included Abigail, Recoil and Double Dove and these horses enabled Mark to step his competitive career up. Serious results in the bigger competitions started coming and his stable of competition horses also started to expand.

His desire to learn and to be the best never ceases to drive Mark. He loves a challenge and loves learning new skills, which is why he has succeeded in several different disciplines. He was among the first horsemen to want to succeed in both the campdraft and cutting arenas and it was the intensity of perfecting the cutting discipline that he has transferred into his cutout techniques.

Mark is classed as an all rounder. He excels at campdraft, cutting and challenge events and is enjoying the challenge of learning to team rope.

Horses for sale are also a product of Mark’s dedication and ability. He always has horses available for sale which include young stock through to fully trained competition horses.

Mark  is a keen supporter of the Landmark Classic concept and offers horses for sale at this venue.  He was proud to present One Stylish Pepto who reached $120,000, what was the highest highest priced Lot ever at the time.

A big part of Mark’s program are his Campdraft and Horsemanship Clinics, which he conducts Australia wide. His knowledge and experience are highly sought after commodities and are offered for all during his schools program.

Mark prefers to conduct 2 day schools with no more than 15 students, although he is happy for any number and the smaller the number the more individualised the structure.
