Brandi Lyons Announced as a Road to the Horse 2022 Championship Competitor

The exhilarating moment that Road to the Horse fans have eagerly anticipated is finally here: the unveiling of the next Road to the Horse 2022 championship competitor. Road to the Horse is renowned for its profound legacy and tradition of showcasing the most superior colt starters who exude the highest principles of horsemanship; so, it is only natural that Brandi Lyons, who has enriched her family’s legacy of legendary horsemanship, is selected as a competitor for Road to the Horse 2022 held March 24-27, 2022, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

Brandi continues to share the invaluable horsemanship philosophy that her father, John Lyons, who is known as “America’s Most Trusted Horse Trainer,” pioneered decades ago.

“We’re excited to welcome Brandi Lyons into the Road to the Horse competitor lineup. The Lyons family has been a trusted name in the horse industry for many years” states Morris Equine Group President, Tina Battock. “Brandi Lyons not only represents generations of the finest horsemanship, but she embodies the strength, grit, and tenacity of the cowgirl.”

Over the past 24 years, Brandi has earned widespread admiration and respect as a trainer, teacher and clinician while demonstrating how success with horses comes naturally when you are willing to think outside of the box, work hard, be honest and have fun. The Lyons’ conditioned response training methods involve teaching others how to work with their horses using gentle training methods to earn the horse’s respect while creating a safe and willing partner.

Akin to teaching a child to read, one letter at a time, Brandi teaches horses how they can move each body part in each direction at each speed, allowing for an easier transition into putting two or more body parts together and evolving into maneuvers such as spinning or flying lead changes. She emphasizes the importance of taking one’s time to ensure the horse has a solid foundation.

Through her clinics or virtual programs in the United States and Canada, Brandi works to instill confidence within riders, showing them that there are no limits to what they can achieve with their horses. Brandi and her husband, J.D., have raised five beautiful daughters, and they enjoy spending their time with their bulldogs and horses.
