Who is Cari Thompson Training?
Cari Thompson Training (CTT) is happily located at Battaglia Farms in Scottsdale, Arizona. Owned by Cari Thompson, CTT has been training and showing National caliber Arabian horses since 2000. CTT begun their first year with great success and their first National champion Cyty Slicker in the Arabian Hunter Pleasure Junior Horse. Cyty Slicker is by Cytosk+++/, a stallion that has played a vital role in CTT. Cari's passion and love of the Cytosk+++/ horses has lead her to train many of them. Cari followed the national championship with Cyty Slicker with a hand full more before she took her National victory lap on Cylent Lightening CCA, another Cytosk+++/ bred horse. Better know around the barn as Lights, this stallion has made a big impact on Cari Thompson Training and Cari herself. Lights embodies all the qualities Cari looks for in a horse.
Justin Cowden rode with Cari and a youth and has since joined the team as Cari's assistant trainer. CTT is very proud to have him and his talent on the team, he has had great success with CTT winning many Regional Champions and in 2013 he was 3rd on the cards at US Nationals in a huge class of Arabian Hunter Pleasure Horses. Cari, Justin, and their team's natural talent and true love for the horses drives them to go above and beyond each day for each horse and each client. They are completely committed to each individual horse's welfare, care, and training to its full potential. Join CTT and enjoy every aspect of the Arabian horse community!!!
