The Lyons’ conditioned response training methods teach people how to work with their horses using gentle training methods, earning the horse’s respect while creating a safe and willing partner.
“I meet each person right where they are on their journey with their horse. We work together to become safe partners with our horses while having fun,” says Brandi Lyons. Brandi had an accident with a horse back in 2001 that changed the way she trained horses and trained the riders. “I became afraid of horses which was such a strange feeling for me because I was literally raised on the back of a horse. I had to overcome my fear as it was the only way I knew how to put food on the table for my children. Because of this I developed a way to help others with their fear.” Brandi is sought out for helping riders overcome their fear, learn to have fun and become great horseman.
Brandi’s success and popularity is based on a simple but seldom practiced philosophy her father pioneered decades ago: love and respect the riders first. Then, success with the horses comes naturally.
Jessica resides in Battle Ground, Washington and trains and teaches at Emerald Valley Stables. She is the recipient of the USDF Bronze, Silver, and Gold medals plus the Free-style Gold Bar, and has had multiple “Horse of the Year” placing with horses in her program. She has coached riders from Training level to FEI with several winning championships. Her calendar is currently filled with her own competition riding, a training & lesson program at Emerald Valley, and a growing number of dressage clinics.
Rob combines his own natural talent and unique ability of reading a horse, with a safe, progressive and productive training program, to bring about the desired results of having not only a respectful and safe horse, but a willing partner. He currently owns South Ridge Farms a premier training and boarding facility in Ridgefield, WA which he designed and built himself. In the last couple years Rob has become involved in training horses and riders for the exciting new sport of Working Equitation.
