Brandi Lyons carries on with the most trusted name in the horse industry. Over the last 22 years, she has become admired and respected by horse owners and enthusiasts from around the country. 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. Second you need to be willing to think out side the box, work hard, be honest and have fun! Then, success with the horses comes naturally. Brandi will show you that with some understanding and a little bit of work you can do anything with your horse. Brandi worked as a trainer while raising her kids for 16 years. For the past 4 years she has been working on the road giving her world renowned clinics to many all over the US and Canada. She has competed at Road to the Horse in 2022.
