Dr. Paul Thompson - Tied 5th in Cutting Horse Event

Before Cenegenics, I weighed 235 pounds, squeezed into 36-inch pants and lacked core strength to sit right on a horse. Now I'm better conditioned, lost extra body fat and improved my core strength. I expect to be showing horses well into my 70s.

Cenegenics® Medical Institute, the global leader in age management medicine, announced Dr. Paul D. Thompson—CEO/Partner of Cenegenics Dallas-Fort Worth in Arlington—tied for 5th place at the cutting horse event at this year’s Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. The 54-year-old physician credits Cenegenics’ healthy aging program for his success in the non-pro events, where his horse made the top 15 in the 35,000 non-pro and tied 5th overall in the finals.

Based on a Western riding style, the cutting sport is arduous, strenuous and adrenaline pumping. Each quarter horse/rider team is judged on the ability to separate a cow from the herd within a short period of time. Thompson plowed through five sets (12-15 contenders in each) with 30 cows in the arena to make “the show”—the finals. That was a far cry from his earlier cutting days when he weighed 235 pounds, squeezed into 36-inch pants and lacked the core strength to sit right on a horse.

“After starting the Cenegenics age-management program, my body became better conditioned, I lost all that extra body fat and my core strength definitely improved. It gave me the ability to train harder and, ultimately, become a better rider. I have no intention of slowing down . . . I fully expect to be showing well into my 70s,” Thompson said.

The difference since Cenegenics is evident, he says. In 2009, Thompson went to Oklahoma for the $20,000 non-pro and $50,000 pro events. He only entered three events—and won the amateur beating 80 competitors, was the reserve champion in the $20,000 and made the finals in the $50,000.

His success on Cenegenics’ age-management program led him to being trained/certified in the field.

“When my health improved tremendously from the Cenegenics program, I saw a real opportunity to help other people become—and stay—healthier. I knew I wanted to be involved with this unique medical specialty,” Thompson said.
