John Lyons Method

CONDITIONED RESPONSE

The horse is a conditioned response animal. As such, this method of training requires commitment, consistency, & repetition. Every time we go near our horse, we are teaching it something - sometimes good, sometimes bad. When you become consistent with your cues to the horse, the horse will become consistent with his response. It is this consistency in your cues and in his response which gives you the performance you want.

The John Lyons Method is not just for the horse. It is also for the owner, rider, and handler. Just like horses, people also need repetition in order to learn and truly understand how to communicate with their horse.

Using John's conditioned response method, Lynn will teach both you & your horse. You will understand how the horse is being trained and be an active partner in that training. There are no secrets. You will see, know and understand everything that is done with your horse.

TRAINING FOUNDATION

The John Lyons Method uses the Round Pen as the ideal place to start the education of your horse. With the horse in the Round Pen, there are a series of exercises designed to take your horse from ignoring your requests to being eager to please you. This will make it less frustrating for both horse and rider as they progress through the first ride. Some of the things the horse will learn as he progresses from step to step will include: responding to cues for going forward, changing direction, stopping, turning & facing you and coming to you. He will learn to stand quietly for grooming, to have his feet picked up, and to have his tack put on. He will also stand quietly while the rider mounts.

Owner participation in this method is a must regardless of whether you want to use your horse for trail riding or for showing. You need to know the cues that your horse has learned in order to access his training, and you need to know how he was trained in order to maintain that training.
