While attending Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, Lyn was introduced to dressage and Combined training (eventing). She competed in eventing, but finally settled on the sport of dressage where she successfully competed, trained, and coached to the FEI levels of the sport. Lyn also completed the USDF L judges program. Lyn has trained and competed on many breeds of horses for competitive dressage and coached many riders successfully up the levels.
When Lyn first learned about Cowboy Dressage - she felt she had finally come home. Her 2 favorite words combined into one discipline. Lyn has competed in Dressage, Working Cow Horse, Combined Training, Show Jumping, and Western Pleasure. She has also participated in cutting, reining, and team roping. She has worked with or trained most breeds of horses (and mules) and finds beauty in all of them. Lyn has a deep respect and love for horses and always strives to give the horse the benefit of the doubt while helping many riders/horses achieve harmonious, successful relationships. She is a part of the Cowboy Dressage Partnership, is working on the Cowboy Dressage Judging Academy and is a recommended judge for Cowboy Dressage.
