Carson grew up on a farm in central Utah. He grew up raising horses on the family sheep ranch, his family also raised cutting horses as well as ranch horses, from there stemmed his love of horses. There he also learned to use his hands. He took up custom knife making in 2009, and stared making custom bits and spurs shortly after. Being a roper gives him a first hand knowledge of how to help a horse to work. His love for the animals comes out in how his bits work.
