WEG: John Lyons to be Featured Clinician in Equine Village

Famed horseman John Lyons will be a featured clinician in the Equine Village during the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, Sept. 25 – Oct. 10, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

Widely considered to be responsible for many changes in the horse industry in the past 30 years, John Lyons has promoted both kind treatment of horses and the safety of horse and rider through hundreds of clinics, expos, symposiums, demonstrations, magazine articles, John Lyons Perfect Horse magazine, radio, and television programs.

Along with his son, Josh, Lyons has developed a certification program known throughout the world. With more than 300 professional certified trainers stationed all over the United States, and in many other countries, their training techniques have affected every horse discipline and throughout every breed.

Lyons says he feels blessed to help people with their horses through expos, symposiums, demos, clinics and by his videos.

"I strive to find easier, more effective ways to communicate to both students and horses," says Lyons. "My training methods make riding so much easier to accomplish, and we as riders begin to enjoy our riding much more because it is less complicated."

Lyons' clinics will be available with a Grounds Pass ticket, which are on sale now for $25 www.alltechfeigames.com/tickets. Lyons and his training methodology will be featured each day of the 16 days of the Games during a one-hour interactive session.
