About Phil Haugen

Over 1,000 horses and 30 years of training experience has laid a solid foundation for proven success in the Haugen Horsemanship program. Raised in western North Dakota, Phil grew up knowing the value of a well-trained equine partner and the importance of creating a foundation built on trust and respect.
Phil competed in the calf roping, team roping, and saddle bronc riding in the PRCA for 20 years, and is now a PRCA Gold Card member. He has qualified for the PRCA Badlands Circuit Finals and the Prairie Circuit Finals in these respective events. Winning at both ends of the arena led Phil to win the coveted Linderman Award in 1989.
Phil has developed a unique training style based on his experiences in and out of the competition arena. His training program is focused on those fundamentals and his keen understanding of how to progress a horse in its training while mentally keeping that horse in a trusting, secure and confident state of mind.
Phil and his family currently reside in Weatherford, Oklahoma. He continues to compete in rodeo and roping events while maintaining a full training roster and clinic schedule.
