Lyn has a keen interest in teaching others how to ride their horses and mules into a state of mental and physical soundness, stressing the importance of groundwork for developing a deep connection and partnership. She is constantly advancing her own knowledge of both equine and rider biomechanics. Because of her multi-discipline background, she understands the difficulties found within each equine discipline and has developed ways to help both horses and riders.

A note from the founding partners of Cowboy Dressage:

We have always felt that it takes courage to live your dreams. It is the goal of Cowboy Dressage World to help make your dreams a reality. Horsemanship is an arduous journey. A good relationship with a horse is an endless endeavor. There are highs and lows, frustration and joy, disappointment and achievement. Horses can stir all our deepest emotions. They heighten our senses and test our patience and knowledge. They can bring us peace and safe haven. Horses call to us and for many the call penetrates to the depth of our very being. Cowboy Dressage World wants you to experience it all. Open your heart and mind and let’s saddle up and ride!

-Eitan, Debbie, Garn, Lyn, and Wyatt
