What is an Apprenticeship?

The Apprenticeship is designed so that each participant progresses at their own speed. However, everyone must start with ground work in the round pen. No one will progress to riding work until they have completed the round pen work. This will give you the best possible foundation for your training and your relationship with your horse. Although the program is progressive, there will be problem solving done throughout.

Not only will participants progress at different speeds, so will their horses. Different horses will respond to training in different ways and present different challenges. Keeping this in mind, you will be given the opportunity to work not only with your horse, but also with a variety of other horses as you progress through the program. These will include both broke and un-broke horses.

Keep in mind that there are literally thousands of things to learn about training horses. John's Certified Trainers spend a year working on his method. Because the Apprenticeship Program is open ended, you may continue to take 1 week sessions as frequently or infrequently as you choose, and learn as much as you desire about using the John Lyons Method of training horses.

The following lists will give you at least a small idea of what will be available to you as you progress through the steps.
  • ON THE GROUND

    Round Pen Basics, Leading, Clipping, Tying, Trailer
    Loading, Go Forward Cue, Standing, Sacking Out,
    Spook in Place, Saddle Breaking 
  • UNDER SADDLE

    Give to the Bit, Go Forward, Stop, and
    Backup, Collection, Water & Bridge Crossing,
    Lead Changes, Lateral Movements, Spins 

Remember, inside of every horse is the "perfect horse." It is the responsibility of the trainer to find a way of communicating with the horse so that the perfection shows. Understanding the John Lyons Method will allow you to accomplish this goal.

Participation

There will be a maximum of 6-8 participants in each session.

Anyone who is at least 18 years old, with the interest and desire to learn the John Lyons Method, may register. You do not have to be an expert horseperson, but you must be willing to work hard, have fun, enjoy your horse, and want to be able to do something that will make all of your horse activities more pleasant and safe for both you and your horse. The gentle training techniques used in the John Lyons Method make it possible for you to accomplish these goals.

Requirements for Your Horse
