Fred Thomsson moved from Sweden to the United States at age 17 to work for Bob Loomis, who is considered one of the world’s top breeders of reining horses. Fred worked for Loomis for six years, and in 1999 Fred was asked to compete in the European championships with the horse Crimson Catalyst, going on to win the Open Reining in Kreutz. After this success, Fred was offered and took the head coach position at Nedpoint Quarter Horses in Oklahoma where he stayed for twelve years. Now, Fred runs his own operation out of Pilot Point, Texas, training, showing, and breeding world-class Reining horses.
Fred trains an average of twenty new colts per year, meaning in the 23 years of his career he has trained almost five hundred young horses. Due to this large number and his expertise, Fred has been able to develop a structured program for his own training regimen. Fred is a winner of multiple National and International titles, and he is the 1999 European Champion in Jr. Reining and 2003 AQHA World Show Jr. Reining Reserve Champion. Additionally, he has ridden multiple Finalists in the NRHA Open Futurity, NRHA Open Derby, and at the National Reining Breeders Classic.
