Craig Cameron grew up dreaming of being a
cowboy. During high school in Houston, TX, he
competed in rough stock events at Texas rodeos.
After high school Craig moved to the 1,700 acre
family cattle ranch where he learned ranching
from the famous Texas Ranger family, the Ham-
ers. Craig loved traditional ranching methods,
using horses to work, move, and handle the cattle.
While living on the ranch, Craig earned his
PRCA card and for almost two decades compet-
ed in the world’s biggest rodeos, specializing in bull riding and traveling throughout the
United States, Canada, and Mexico. Craig objected to the unnecessary rough treatment
horses received in the 1950’s and 60’s. He took on problem horses from local ranch-
ers and used a slower, more natural approach. Clients would get their horses back and,
puzzled by the incredible, quick transition, wanted to watch the magic at work. Craig
said, “When I started making them pay, they really started listening.”
Craig then met Ray Hunt and followed in his trail, becoming one of the “original clini-
cians,” and filming his first video in 1985. Now Craig performs worldwide, traveling almost
90,000 miles and 44 weeks a year. Craig, called the Public Defender of the horse, also hosts
two silver “Telly” TV shows, “Ride Smart” and “The Extreme Cowboy Race” on RFDTV.
Craig Cameron keeps the cowboy way alive. Most noted for his innovative horse-
manship skills and exciting teaching techniques, he is also an incredible woodsman and
hunter. Among his awards are the American Cowboy Culture Award for the Working
Cowboy and Western Equestrian Award. He was recently adopted by the Crow Indian
Nation, Montana, and given the name “Captures Many Horses”. Well known for his
sense of humor and trademark laugh, Craig is still going strong at an age where most
men are riding the rocking chair. Craig still starts hundreds of colts and teaches hundreds
of classes each year. Craig Cameron may have grown up dreaming of being a cowboy
but with his induction into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame in 2007, people will now
always say, “He did not just dream it, he lived it.”
