commentating and giving highlights on the
cutting horse industry's major aged events:

  Current Show:
Abilene Spectacular

Tom Holt’s yearly path resembles a road map, much like the route he has taken to becoming one of the most recognizable voices behind a microphone in the cutting horse industry.

People skills, especially his love for kids, probably were bred into him. His appreciation for the incredible horses that control testy, uncooperative cattle is a different matter. That love affair literally has grown from the ground up as he cleaned stalls, groomed horses, drove a tractor to prepare arena dirt and worked in show offices.

Tom lives in Weatherford, Texas, with his wife of 25 years, Colleen, and his mother-in-law, Margaret Weber.  His shows range from week-long events to NCHA major events that occupy over three weeks. He acknowledges that his total miles pale in comparison to those traveled by weekend haulers, but his 30,000-mile-plus year is “seldom stop” once it begins with the Abilene (Texas) Spectacular in January. “When I left Augusta [the Augusta Futurity and Classic], I actually was leaving for Paso [Paso Robles, Calif., and the Pacific Coast CHA Spring Roundup],” Holt said.

Holt’s baritone voice frequently belts out the national anthem at cutting horse events. Once, when a number of Canadians qualified for the finals, Tad Free sang the U.S. national anthem and Holt was asked to sing the Canadian national anthem. “I love singing, just like I love announcing,” he said. “I hope everybody enjoys my singing and announcing. I’ve been fortunate to sing the anthem at the big [NCHA] Futurity, the Super Stakes and the Summer Spectacular.” Modine Smith has been an invaluable friend as she worked at elbow’s length at the PCCHA scoring table.
