Dawson Performance Horses

Meet Our Team

We rely heavily on a talented & dedicated team of professionals to make Dawson Performance Horses a successful program. So much of what we do happens behind the scenes & without the support of our great staff we would not have the program we are proud of each & every day.

Team DPH

Chance Harman, Assistant Trainer


Chance Harman & Chris Dawson turned back together at the NRCHA Derby in 2015. They found themselves getting up at the same times to ride at the Snaffle Bit Futurity in 2016 & getting to watch & know one another better.

Chance is now an Assistant Trainer at Dawson Performance Horses, keeping show horses fit, riding two year olds, plus a string of his own. He assists in every aspect behind the scenes & holds down the fort while Chris & Sarah are on the road, caring for & keeping the horses at home legged up & their training progressing.

“My favorite things about working at Dawson Performance Horses is the confidence I have in their program, the ultimate care given to each horse, & the general overall happiness we all have to be doing what we love to do here,” says Chance. “If we, as trainers & assistant trainers are happy, the horses are happier too & it shows.”

Dawson Performance Horses is grateful to have Chance Harman as a trusted & very important part of Team Dawson.

Kat Paschal, Marketing, Press & P.R.


“Sarah & Chris have opened the door to many opportunities for me in the industry. They have given me the opportunity to be an Open Futurity horse owner, have trusted me with important aspects of their business & have allowed me try new things with quite a bit of creative freedom. I appreciate that wholeheartedly,” says Kat. “I feel most confident I’ve done my job for them when they can focus on their clients & their horses & what I’m doing falls into place alongside their progress without them having to think about it. Ultimately, to truly be behind the scenes while producing a great product is my job & they’ve helped me settle into that role & come to really appreciate it through experience.”
