apriljohnston32@yahoo.com
April became a Brandi Lyons certified trainer in the class of 2018/2019. She has about 15 years of experience competing in all-around Western and English disciplines, earning multiple national titles in events like trail, huntseat equitation, and reining. She also competed for 2 years in collegiate ranch horse versatility (winning a national title for trail) while she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Equine Science at Colorado State University. Over the years, she has developed a passion for horse training, and Brandi’s certification program has been a helpful step in rounding out April’s skills and giving her the tools to make her dream of having a horse training business a reality. April strives to give horses a quality training foundation so that they can go on to be successful in any discipline. She also loves to teach people, helping them build confidence in themselves and with the horses.  April is currently offering services in Rio Verde, Arizona at the No Limits Training Facility.
What Brandi has to say about April:
I am so proud to have April staying on my property to provide my clients and my friends monthly training.  She is incredibly gifted.  April is one of the prettiest riders I have ever had come through my program.  She has an incredible seat and soft hands.  She is one of the few trainers I have ever had that I could tell her to go do something and she instantly could do it.  She has an incredible way of working with a horse.  Makes them calm and slow and soft immediately.  April works hard I see it on a daily basis her going out and working and doing what she says she is going to do.  She loves the performance aspect and I think she is going to go very far in this industry.  I am most proud of April because she walks her walk with Christ everyday.  She loves the Lord and loves the horse.  I am so blessed to have her as a trainer.

Dana De Frates

Dana is a gifted and natural teacher with a degree in education, who spent years designing and delivering training for the corporate world. Even though Dana had been riding all her life, and started competing in 4-H and Hunter/Jumper while still in preschool, some very pushy people at boarding facilities damaged her confidence. She found comfort in the process of classical dressage, which she studied for over a decade, until a couple traumatic events left her with fear. Determined to regain her passion for riding, Dana found Brandi and worked tirelessly to rebuild her confidence, and when she did, made it her mission to help others who faced similar challenges by becoming a Brand Lyons Certified Trainer. She is now bringing her corporate education experience to the horse world helping people change their relationships with their horses.

Katie Carmichael

(708)979-2856

info@caliridgefarm.com
Katie has spent her whole life around horses. In her younger years she spent summers riding at her grandfather’s ranch. As she grew older her grandfather began giving her more responsibilities with the horses which included helping with his problem horses and starting unbroke horses. In 2016 she, her sister, and mother opened up their own facility. In the summer of 2017 and 2018 Katie and her sister rode in clinics with Brandi. Katie fell in love with the training aspect of having horses. She followed that love to Arizona to go through Brandi’s certification program. She graduated as a certified trainer in January 2019.
What Brandi has to say about Katie:
Katie is one of my all time favorite people and trainers.  She is gifted.  She is fun to be around.  She will always give her 100% in everything she does.  She is always just around the corner to give a helping hand.  She is not afraid to stand up to what she believes in and you will quickly know that she believes in taking care of a horse the best way possible and will not cut corners.  I am incredibly proud to have her and her sister apart of our team.  Katie did not know in the beginning how incredibly gifted she is as a trainer but once she saw how she could change a horse and offer a better life through better communication she was hooked.  It comes down to a true love of the horse and how she wants to better every horse’s life around her.  She and her sister make a dynamic team and as hard as I tried to get them to move to AZ they stayed in MI.  Michigan is incredibly lucky to have this team!  If you are looking for a teacher or a trainer do not hesitate to send your horses to them!!

Leanne Wildman

My name is Leanne, and I am a trainer in northern California, looking for clients to inspire and teach. My goal is to find the potential in any horse, maximize their abilities, and educate and cultivate a relationship between horse and rider so that they can thrive. I went through the Brandi Lyons Certification in 2019 and am currently training in Sebastopol, CA.  I would love the chance to use my skills to assist other horses and owners in meeting their potential. I also have a passion for teaching people of all levels and ages, how to improve communication with their horses. I would like to show you that the relationship is the most important because it involves trust and guidance by both rider and horse. I hope to inspire improvements within that precious relationship. I offer lessons, monthly training services, consultations, and colt starting. I would love to discuss any questions you have and go over options of how to improve your skills.

What Brandi has to say about Leanne:

Leanne is one of the youngest to ever finish and graduate from my program.  She is a true and true horse lover that has a passion for the horse.  She is one of those girls who I believe could not live a week without riding or helping a horse in some form.  She is a hard worker and will do anything for her clients and their horses.  I am proud to have her as a part of this team because I believe she brings us all back to why we all started riding in the first place… that we love horses for the pure form of love that a horse can give us. While she went through the program she reminded me of when I was a young girl and would just go sit with my horse and have lunch with him. She reminded me to enjoy every part of the word HORSEMANSHIP.  Leanne is working on her skills of teaching owners and provides a great atmosphere for those that do not want to be judged or feel less than.  She will make you feel cared about and you will know without a shadow of doubt that she loves your horse.  She will do whatever she can to make him or her understand you and listen to you better.

Megan Carmichael

708) 928-9185

info@caliridgefarm.com

Megan’s life has revolved around horses since she was a young girl. She grew up riding at her grandpa’s ranch, he fostered her love of horses. He taught her that respecting the horse and earning it’s trust weren’t just benefits we get from training but were key tools to use during training. In 2016, after graduating from college with a degree in education, she dreamed of eventually using horses to educate kids. She, along with her sister and mother, opened their facility that summer and began training their own horses. After meeting Brandi that next summer she made it a goal to go through her training program to further her training education. Two clinics and one clydesdale later she and her sister ended up in Arizona learning the Lyons method and building a wealth of knowledge to further her understanding of horses and to better train both horse and rider. She graduated from Brandi’s 2019 class and is located in Dowagiac, Michigan.

 

What Brandi has to say about Megan…

Megan is an incredibly gifted, hardworking, and special young woman.  I feel so blessed to have her out there representing me and my training team.  She always impressed me with horses but once I spent time with her and Katie they impressed me on who they are as women.  They will always go the extra mile to help someone and do the very best job at EVERYTHING they do!!  Megan is a great trainer. She can help you as a rider.  She is a great communicator and teacher.  As a trainer there isn’t a horse I would not send to her.  I would trust her with any of my horses.  Megan has the drive to start a horse correctly, finish a horse in almost any discipline, fix any problem, and then go the extra mile and teach everything she can to the owner.  You will not be disappointed in sending a horse to her.  I begged and begged to keep her with me as my assistant!

Debbie Erlinger

623-261-6352

Debbie Erlinger is a helper of people with their horses. She started working with Brandi to overcome her fear. She was starting to have fun with her horses, and wanted to do more. “Watching people struggle with what I once struggled with pushed me to want to help them. I wanted to show others that they too can overcome their fear, learn to communicate properly with their horse, and start having fun!”

She then helped Brandi with a one of her accelerated programs and then started teaching her own fear-based and horsemanship-based programs. “Debbie is an amazing person and an amazing teacher. I am so excited to have her a part of my team here in Arizona. I know that because she understands what others are going through and can relate to them, she is going to be the best teacher to help owners with their horses.”

You and your horse can go on to do anything you set your mind to! Debbie can help!
