Mark Purcell

Mark grew up on the East Coast and has been riding since age 10. He trained with, and then worked with, some of the best in the business before moving to California 16 years ago. Today you can find him in the Upper Ring at Far West training and instructing the next champion horses and riders, or at the show grounds with his trusty lab, Buddy, by his side.

Regarding joining the Far West family, Mark says, “I am very honored that Nick reached out and extremely happy to be part of the FWF Team! I’m looking forward to a successful future with Far West.”
