Justin Nicolson is the main trainer and source of entertainment behind the up-and-coming movement known as 180 Horsemanship. Born in Central California, Justin’s horse background is deep-rooted in his love for the traditional, classic Californio riding style. Justin’s experience spans from bareback rodeo broncs to cowboying in Nevada, from starting thoroughbred racing colts to training professional cutters. He prides his training techniques on being centered around the horse’s unique needs and speed of learning, prioritizing lightness through communication. His honest, relaxed, and a fun-loving approach is refreshing in an industry that sometimes forgets it’s all about fostering that long-lasting relationship between us and our horses. Justin currently trains out of Sliding J Ranch in Acampo, CA with his steadfast partner Nicole Kochanowski, starting colts of all breeds and disciplines and training performance cowhorses.
