"Few people reach their full potential as a skier or teacher

This may seem like a lot, but it really isn't.

Born and raised in the midwest, Gary Heins knew by age 4 that he wanted to be a cowboy.. However, having grown-ups in his life fearing no future for cowboys, something happened that would shape his life and the SWINGIN' G brand: they took away his securely well-worn dilapidated cowboy hat. . . . Little did they know.
So DOWNHILL SKIING is what lured Gary west to begin with in 1976--a kind of substitute for riding and roping. Now he's taught thousands of skiers of all ages and abilities, most of these for the earlier-day frontier-justice Jackson Hole Ski School---he knows how to prevent runaways on the steeps and skiers getting bucked off in the moguls. Extremely qualified, but never fully-certified by PSIA because of politics and pecking orders, he can certify you to ride the high lift---whether you can ski down or not is up to you. What you might call a working ski-boy, he considers it his job to go up on the winter range to pack snow for summer irrigation. Maybe you've heard his weekly RADIO SKI-BOY address. When you ski with Gary---he's been appointed as a U.S. SKI TEACHER with a jurisdiction for giving clinics anywhere in the West,---ask him to recite his classic SKI-BOY POETRY, which is what led to yet another heinsian phenomenon, his SKI-BOY-n-WESTERN MUSIC.
Once out west, Gary remembered his lost cowboy hat and his aspiration to be a cowboy. Using his skiing skills, he became a dude wrangler for several summers and learned to get acquainted with horses, using, uh, baby-talk. A DEPUTY U.S. COLT BENDER, he does a bit of what he calls safe-n-easy COLT BENDING between spring and fall---to improve his riding and his dancing: rather than breaking a horse's spirit, he just tries to bend it in the right direction. Read his WESTERN RIDING manual, and you'll be certified to get bucked off and get back on; but you don't have to get right back on, you just have to get back on right.
is where Gary's heart is in the evenings--"it's
just part of being a well-rounded wrangler," he says. Following the music of Bob Wills, George
Strait, and many others, Gary teaches men . . . to lead women with discipline
and spontaneity---no line-dancing.
"I've barroom danced with all kinds of women, thousands
of women including the difficult ones," he notes, "---everybody's
wife, sister, girl-friend, mother-in-law,---and I've learned a lot about getting
them to move the right way at the right time.
And," he says, "I am going to let you in on a secret: there
is a dire need for men who know how to lead a woman on the country dance
floor---fact is, I cannot dance them all myself." Not to be confused with square dancing,
which requires a trained caller and a lot of other people, this is something
you can do at home or take downtown. . . .
Take his six-week lesson series or read his book, and Gary will
certify you to dance with strangers.
Recently, when someone committed "Murder On Music Row," Gary
was appointed U.S. DANCE TEACHER ---they decided, even
if no one hangs of killing country music, someone should swing.
Now that's not the old cliché "many irons in the fire," as most non-thinking people would think, but rather "one iron . . . in many different fires." But Gary Heins, wrangler-skier, may be best known for his brass as a freelance writer---when they took away his cowboy hat, they uncovered an inquisitive mind. Misunderstood by many, disturbing to some, Gary's mission, via a revised-n-up-dated cowboy mythology, is to side-step traditional hand-me-down beliefs and teaching methods . . . and put responsibility for learning back on the shoulders of the student. To Gary, teaching means learning, and he has an uncanny ability for drawing parallels and perpendiculars and reading behind the lines, often showing people startling reflections of themselves, in a congruous way. . . . Says Gary, "If I can help one man satisfy one woman on the dance floor, if I can prevent one divorce between horse-n-rider, prevent one divorce between skis-n-skier---" . . . Besides his SWINGIN' G BOOKS in tack stores, ski shops, and book stores, look for his columns, RIDING or SKIING WITH HEINS-SIGHT, as well as other topics, all full of that delightful backwards Heinsian Humor and Philosophy.
