How Did Tracy Come To Be A John Lyons Certified Trainer?
Says Tracy, "I learned about John Lyons when I lived in the Florida Panhandle. I didn't get to see him in person until 1993 when I moved to North Carolina; there I learned about the Certification Program. I was so impressed with what I saw, I had to know more, and I just knew one day I would do it! Before I went through "cert", I was fortunate to ride in several clinics with John and have his son, Josh, come several times each year to The Farm to give clinics.
A professional horse trainer of non-gaited and gaited breeds for over 20 years, she's always searching for better training methods, remaining open to new and different techniques. Since 1977, Tracy and her mother have raised Paso Fino Horses on their Wisconsin farm, home to 50+ horses. Not only an accomplished horse trainer but also a world class professional water skier and author as well! In her spare time, she travels giving clinics and lessons.
These methods made sense to me. I could see a natural progression. I liked that there was a lesson plan with steps that would eventually get me to my goal. I liked that I could improve many areas of my horse simply by working toward one specific goal. I also learned that riding problems are rider instigated and I was the one responsible. When I accepted this fact, things began to change.
Now I teach people. I help them acquire skills and insights on how to safely and effectively communicate with their horses. My classes don't end after a few days. I try to spark a desire in my students to want to learn more about their horse. The result is they get more from their horse. Any breed of horse and every discipline from basic trail riders to dressage and reining enthusiasts can use these basic principles to create a better athlete physically, mentally and emotionally.
