The methodology of the John & Josh Lyons Certification Program is in a league of its own.  Unique in its focus, our Program and team work with students to highlight each individuals personal strengths, which then form the foundation for them to develop their own training techniques, using the methods they’ve learnt.  The format of the program is consistently evolving, thus ensuring each student is given the most updated and progressive training techniques available.  Each lesson is taught in the safest environment possible to ensure the safety of horse, trainer, and rider.

In addition to the ‘training’ elements in our Certification Program, we also work with you during the Program to ensure you are equipped to begin your new career.  We will cover topics such as: Developing Leadership Skills, How to Set Up Clinics, Planning Demonstrations, Developing Sponsor Relationships, Advertising, Social Media, Networking and Marketing.

Our students come from all walks of life, from various careers and many have changed their entire life and lifestyles in order to be here.  The one thing they all have in common is the desire to follow their equine dreams and learn the Lyons Methods.
