When I consider the people who have had a life impact on me there are few. Becky Fuchs Mahoney is one of those few, imparting to me a foundation in horsemanship that has set me up to pursue my life dreams. Through the foundation I received from Becky's instruction I have become everything that I hoped to be with my horses. She will always be a cherished friend and colleague.
If you are looking to improve your horsemanship skills or your children's I strongly suggest that you spend your time, energies, and finances with Becky. You will value every minute of your time with her and it will last you a life time.

I have personally trained with Becky for over 13 years and have found that her unique style and teaching ability applies to the beginner as well as the advanced horseman. She is extremely knowledgeable and displays a passion along with the desire to share her vast experience with others. Becky is a powerful motivator and communicates in a positive, proactive manner. She has been instrumental in developing my horsemanship skills which I believe has been the foundation to my success in the arena. I always learn something when I am around Becky.

I met Becky Mahoney in 1986 when I was rodeoing in Colorado…she kindly offered to “help” me with my roping, in other words, TEACH me HOW to rope! She was winning everything in the mixed team roping and break away roping and I was a complete nobody that could barely touch a steer or a calf with my rope!
Becky has always had a super affinity to teach, especially kids! She has an uncanny ability to break skills down into steps that are easily understood and grasped! She teaches with kindness and compassion and comes straight from her heart. Now, just 25 years later, she is still teaching and has a wealth of experience and knowledge to share.

My daughter, Chelsey, has been a student of Becky's since she was six years old and we credit Becky for all her years of winning awards because of the horsemanship Becky taught her. Our whole family has so many great memories and Chelsey has so many accomplishments to be proud of. It was all of Becky's unconditional time and love for her students and their horses that made such a great group of cowgirls and cowboys that I, as a parent, have watched... as these kids grew up with great horsemanship skills and the true love of the sport of rodeo. We all learned as families, how to better our kids and our horse's competition skills and learned that basic horsemanship can definitely stop a little problem from becoming a big problem, whether it was what tack we were using or the way our children were riding. Becky can see what is happening and correct it with the Monte Foreman style of horsemanship and it really works! Chelsey continues to teach Becky's techniques to other girls and it is great to know that she is proud of her horses and all that she has won and wants other girls to have a winning career just as she did. Thanks Becky for the love you had for our daughter and our horses! Thanks from one of the many proud parents you helped!

I owe 98% of my rodeo career to Becky. Becky is the most patient and knowledgeable rodeo coach in the rodeo business. Thanks to Becky all of her students were consistently in the winner’s circle. Because of Becky’s training I am not only a confident and accomplished competitor but also a trainer. I know I would not have been able to get this far in my rodeo and training career without Becky’s superb knowledge of this sport. Last but not least, she is the best cook that I know.

We have known Becky Mahoney for 12 years. She is not only a great friend, but has been a wonderful teacher for my kids. She taught them the basics in horsemanship as well as helping them achieve their goals of being rodeo champions. Taylor has won 88 buckles and 15 saddles, along with other great prizes and money. Taylor always loved getting lessons and learned so much with Becky over the years. She has won year end championships in barrels, poles, goat tying, and breakaway in the both the Arizona Junior Rodeo Association and the Arizona Jr. High School Rodeo Associations, as well as many all arounds. She went to the Az. Wrangler National Finals three years in a row. Her horse won Horse of the Year at Nationals and she also won Rookie of the Year. She achieved great things and continues to rodeo and loves it. We owe a lot to Becky for all she has done. I know my younger daughter Bobbi will excel when she is able to get lessons from Becky, so she will be good at rodeo and great at horsemanship! IT REALLY IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS!!!!

Becky has been a teacher and mentor to me in and out of the arena my whole life. She is an outstanding roper and a very good teacher. She also can cook outstanding so don't worry about going hungry because you never will.

Becky is a roper, a cowgirl, and instructor all at the same time. One person with all of these qualities is very rare. I am so honored to give a testimonial. I have known her for over 20 years from college until now. She was assisting with the rodeo team at Western Montana College in Dillon, MT when I first met Becky. She has helped me so much with horses and life. I quote her all of the time in my workings with junior high and high school kids up here in Montana. She breaks it down to the basics and makes it very easy to learn, whether it is riding, roping, or running barrels. The cool part about Becky, is after you are done getting a lesson from her, you go with her to a jackpot and she ropes amazing and her horses are the envy of everyone. She talks the talk and she walks the walk! The other amazing thing about Becky is the fact that she is so humble. I only hope that I will get to spend more time with her in years to come.
