HALL of FAME

John Lyons

John Lyons Inducted into Western States Horse Expo Hall of Fame

John Lyons is one of the most respected trainers around the world. He is known as “America’s Most Trusted Horseman” and he has earned that title through almost 29 years of dedication to horses and horse owners. His ideas and concepts in horse training have influenced every level of performance, every style of riding and every breed of horse throughout the world. His ideas and work have directly changed thousands of lives. John’s sincere regard for people and the horses they love has remained unchanged throughout his career.

John has been honored by many facets of the horse industry including universities, breed associations, horse clubs, magazines, cities and states for his contributions and dedication to the horse and the industry. John reaches out to people through The John Lyons’ Perfect Horse Magazine and has touched the lives of millions of people throughout the years.

John continues to be one of the most sought after trainers, speakers, demonstrators and clinicians in the United States and abroad. There is hardly an expo in the country or around the world where you will not find John, his children Josh and Brandi or one of their certified trainers as a guest clinician.

Thirteen years ago John developed his certified trainer program that has graduated almost 300 trainers. This program had grown to be one of the top programs in the country for producing great clinicians, trainers and teachers. Today, this training program is taught by one of the top trainers in the world, John’s son, Josh Lyons.
One of the sweetest girls in the world (according to John) and his love is his wife, Jody. They live and work in Parachute, Colorado on “Our Dream Ranch.”
