“From the time I was 3 or 4 years old, my dad always had Quarter Horses,” Boechat said. “I began competing in barrel racing and then moved on to roping calves and team roping. While I was doing all this, all I wanted to do was reining.”
A new professional way of training quarter horses with the best trainers in Purcell, Oklahoma
At 11 years old, Boechat had his first reining horse and began showing in the sport. He wisely attended a clinic taught by Jango Salgado, one of the top reining trainers in Brazil. The clinic fueled the young rider’s passion, providing invaluable reining training tips and most importantly, the idea he could make training and riding his profession.

World-class reiner Trevor Dare has dedicated his life to all things horse. Born on his family’s horse farm in central Ohio, he was raised by professional horse trainers –father Rusty Dare and uncle Rocky Dare – and mother Linda Dare, a horseback riding instructor and coach of hunt seat and national champion western middle school, high school and college equestrian teams.
Trevor started riding with his parents as a baby and independently at age three. An athletic rider, Trevor played sports as a youth including soccer and novice youth wrestling in addition riding horses. By age five he was loping older show horses for his Dad daily. At eight years, he began helping in the lesson program, riding behind new riders. He also did most of the riding on his own show horses while his Dad supervised. He never owned one horse for very long. Initially, his parents purchased his horses for him, but soon he was training horses and selling them to purchase better ones to show.
