John O'Hara

Reining & Western Pleasure
1 year with Arenus



A Texas trainer with over 25 years in the professional realm, John O’Hara has amassed an impressive resume. With 45 Arabian US National Championships in reining, 23 US National Reserve titles and 121 US National Top 10s in reining and western pleasure, O’Hara is highly regarded as one of the top trainers in the US. So much so that, in 2001, he was named Arabian Horse Association Working Western Trainer of the Year.

In addition to top honors in the Arabian world, his accomplishments among the AQHA are quite impressive as well. He is currently one of the top money earners in the NRHA with over $235,000 in earnings.

Known for his humble nature, O’Hara is perhaps most proud of his students. An excellent coach, his non-pro students have succeeded in the ring at all levels.

"Sore No-More is kept in 4 places; my tack room, my wash rack, my horse trailer and on my horses for the comfort and prevention of tendon and back soreness.”
