Horseman & Western Television Producer
Taylor Sheridan has taken the Western Performance Horse industry by storm with his film making and outside-the-box thinking. The native Texan lives in Weatherford and ranches cattle in Jacksboro.
Recipient of the American Quarter Horse Association Spirit Award and the National Reining Horse Association’s Reiner of the Year Award, it is apparent that Sheridan’s impact is recognized.
Co-creator of Paramount Network’s hit show “Yellowstone,” Sheridan is passionate about representing the western way of life to the masses and shows the difficult changes agriculture and ranching has had to endure. According to Sheridan, he also wanted the show to not just be about cowboys, but be for cowboys also.
Another home-run production of Sheridans’ was the TV series “The Last Cowboy,” where he created a reining horse show with a $1.25 million payout and followed several trainers on their journey preparing for the show. The show was a success, garnering 1.2 million viewers.
As Sheridan prepares for the fourth season on “Yellowstone,” he continues to highlight the reining, reined cow horse, and cutting horse industries.
