Born in 1980, Casey Deary grew up in Texas riding horses, taking low-cost colts, training them and reselling them, allowing him to grow his training business. Deary was raised by incredible parents that taught him the values of God, family, hard work, integrity and helping others. Deary’s parents did not own horses when Casey was a child, but as a young man he found them and pursued life as a cowboy purchasing his own truck, trailer, saddle and horse one piece at a time.
In 1996 Deary began competing with his horse “Dusty” in the National Reining Horse Association; today he is ranked #4 in the NRHA Leading Lifetime Riders with earnings over $3,447,968.88.
As of January 1st, 2023, Deary holds the honor of winning the National Reining Horse Association Futurity three times. First in 2012 on Americasnextgunmodel, again in 2015 on Shesouttayourleague, and most recently in 2021 on Ten Thirty. Deary also achieved the 2022 NRHA Open Futurity Reserve Championship title riding Customize My Dream.

He has also won the National Reining Breeders Classic in 2020 and the National Reining Horse Association Derby in 2022 with an industry and crowd favorite stallion “Maverick” also known as Americasnexttopgun.
