Western Dressage Q & A Session

"Wildehex, I totally agree with you. Eitan said one time "few people can ride a horse bridleless, but even fewer people can ride with a bridle." Personally, I think the top level Western Dressage horse should be ridden one-handed in the a…"

Western Dressage Q & A Session

"IF the horse is not ready for a spade/curb WHY show in it??  And certainly WHY with two hands?  I showed (in calif. in a Vaquero tradition) from hackamore to snaffle to spade.  But ONLY a snaffle allowed two hands.  IF this is to…"

What is Shoulder-in?

"I agree with you (and actually use to do western eq at a national level), but the 'technical stuff' esp about the degree of bend vs straightness and what the proper aids are is KEY to the exercises success.  The vaquero tradition…"

What is Shoulder-in?

"The big difference between Western Dressage and Classical is that we keep it simple and do not get all bent around all the technical stuff. After all its a horse not machine. The "KEY"  is to keep it simple without losing the value of…"

What is Shoulder-in?

"And there is a difference between flexion inside, and bending.  It is better to have flexion inside, or to do shoulder-fore (less tracks then shoulder in....2 1/2 tracks...insie hind shows between the forelegs rather than being hidden by…"

What is Shoulder-in?

What is Shoulder-in?

"Shoulder in can be three tracks (first step of a 10 m circle) or four tracks (first step of 6 or 8m volte), it has to do with the degree of bending."

Profile Information

A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
Randy’s Facebook Fan Page explains that he began to study under John and Josh Lyons, and earned a Lyons certification.”

Randy has turned his "BarnMice" presence into an online training tool. Not only does Randy throw out questions to make his fans think, but fans also ask questions regarding training issues they are personally experiencing.

Randy’s followers include all levels of horse owners and he encourages all to participate in answering these questions. He then may ask further questions based on those answers and ultimately gives his views on the issue.

Randy also assists horse owners with the "Trainer on Retainer" videos. Individuals send him their videos to review and he reedits them and sends them back with helpful hints on how to fix the issue. You can check this out in the video section of the fan page.

Randy admits that he is a bit of a rebel in the equine training industry because he is Western with an English twist. He is the "People's Horseman", because his goals are to bring both worlds together and show that a western horse can be just as elegant as a top level Dressage horse. He is constantly questioning the long established methods in use today, which is resulting in some new and thought provoking concepts.
