"Miss Charlotte" – as they call her – is being jointly trained by Don Clark and his son, Tyler Johnson – Clark. Don Clark began riding as a young boy growing up in Crossett, Arkansas. His early influences were his father, older brothers, and several cowboy friends of his father. Don’s West Coast influences are Bobby Ingersoll, Greg Ward, and Ted Robinson. Don says that Bobby Ingersoll and Greg Ward taught him the word “patience”, and how that lends itself to a better horseman. He always admired how Ted Robinson seemed to have fun while competing. He also credits his friend and mentor, Jewel McKinley Cobb for teaching him a lot about horsemanship.
Don is a Pacific Penning and Sorting Association Hall of Fame inductee. Don, Jewel and Kitty Brown were the first all African-American team to win at the Grand National Rodeo in 2007. Together they took home the award for Reserve Champion in Team Penning at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, California.
