This is a great opportunity to spend a weekend getting a refresher course to learn more about John and Josh Lyons methods of training from a certified trainer. If you haven't tried these fool-proof methods, it is well worth your time to learn! These techniques were developed to ensure a gentler, more effective way to train your horse. Using conditioned response techniques can change the attitude of both you and your horse, and make riding and training more fun! Richie is an excellent teacher, explaining the steps in a down to earth easy to understand format
Richie has been present at the last few RMHA INTL shows doing demonstrations and giving private lessons to youths and adults alike. We personally have taken part and were very impressed. He will be at the 2007 RMHA INTL also due to popular demand !!!!
A Look at Richie's Clinics...
Each clinic will differ depending on the rider's ability and experience.
Afternoon demonstration, questions and answers. Richie will discuss his training philosophies and will discover the personal goal of each horse and rider team. Discuss the information and foundation work that will develop over the next three days.
The major focus of this clinic will be on desensitization and collection; strengthening gait and trot fluidness.
The clinic format takes you through all basic maneuvers required for teaching your horse to move at body parts independently. These training methods can be used for all riding disciplines. For a PDF with more information on clinics, hosting and a contract please click the link below.

Richie also has his own style and from what he did with a very cocky stud colt of ours spoke volumes........
He took a very disrespectful colt and turned him (using gentle/natural techniques) into an attentive calm well behaved colt !!!!!!!!!
He has been doing demos at the RMHA INTL for several years now working horses never touched or problem horses and bringing out a really nice horse at the end of a session. Richie also trains RM horses in KY. His clinic differs from Jochi's in that you work in a group setting and can learn from each other. Its very hands on and informative
He will also take note if any one horse or person have difficulty and work on that issue at hand right then. He will also ask if any one has a specific problem with their horse that they would like worked on or with.
