Afton has grown up at Clementine Farms and has been around the program of Stillwater Academy all of his life. He has trained horses and has given riding lessons since he was 15 years old. He has a great love for horses. He excelled in the sport of rodeo through high school and college. He is currently the owner of CF Training Company. CF Training provides riding lessons for all ages including roping lessons. He also trains and breeds horses.
Afton appreciates the connections he’s developed with the students at Stillwater. In his business he teaches people about horses. Working for Stillwater has introduced him to the idea of the horses transforming people. His favorite part is watching kid’s with confidence and self-esteem issues put forth the courage necessary to ride a 1200 pound animal and have a great experience. Then he watches that confidence transfer into the rest of their lives. Afton loves the students and loves watching their progress week week with each small change. Many of the student’s subtle changes during the healing process are introduced and reinforced by their equine experiences at the ranch.
Afton lives on Stillwater’s horse ranch called Clementine Farms where he and his wife love raising their two kids farm style. He loves to rope cattle and smoke and grill all kinds of meat. He also enjoys reading, golfing, and gardening.
