    Josh Lyons Horsemanship
    Josh Lyons grew up learning horsemanship from his dad. John Lyons was one of the first trainers I remember seeing on back in the early 2000s. I was new to horses and really did not know what I was doing. The TV show showed me there was a whole style of horsemanship that was effective and, with work and study, easy for anyone to learn.
    Back in 2017, I was lucky enough to catch up and interview Josh's sister, Brandi, about her Lyons's No Limit Clinic. This year, I was working on some basic exercises, and I remembered watching John Lyons TV program, and that got me thinking about the Lyons' Horsemanship Philosophy. A little research, and email to Josh's office, and I connected with Josh.
    Josh Lyons Legacy Training As part of the Lyons legacy program, Josh is educating horse trainers in every discipline. Education is important to Josh. He wants his trainers to succeed. The Legacy program gives people the right tools to train horses. The Colorado Department of Higher Education, Private Occupational School Board, approve and regulates the Lyons Legacy Program. And, because Josh wants to give back to veterans, his Legacy program went through the stringent qualifications to qualify students for VA benefits.

    Breakaway From Cancer

    Breakaway From Cancer

    Breakaway From Cancer
    Today we are doing something a little different. Often, I get requests from someone to be on the show. They have a good book, a new piece of tack, or a good cause. There's not enough content for an entire show, but it's worthwhile information I think you's like to know. Since I'm producing a long version every other week, I thought I'd experiment with a short podcast in between. Let me know what you think.
    Beth Papopnik's friend and breakaway roper, Emily, contracted cancer. It was pretty serious and, as you can imagine, stressful. Beth and her friends wanted to help. They formed a charitable foundation, Breakaway From Cancer, to help with Emily's mounting bills. After many months, Emily is on the mend and Beth and her friends saw there was a need for their charity in the equine world. They want to grow the charity and help more people.
    Beth tells the story of how Breakaway From Cancer got started and what it hopes to accomplish in the future. I hope you will check it out.

    Horseman Jeremy Dunn

    Horseman Jeremy Dunn

    Horseman Jeremy Dunn
    Jeremy Dunn is a horseman and rancher living south of Bakersfield. Jeremy is a horse trainer and clinician, but I don't think he likes that label much. From what I've seen, Jeremy is more of an artist than a technician as he works with horses. As part of their Horsemanship series, Johnny Flores Horsemanship is hosting a clinic with Jeremy done at their ranch, March 11, 2023, in Acton, California. On today's show, we talk about his philosophy and what you can expect from the clinic.
    I met Jeremy in 2014 and the following year he encouraged me to enter The Vaquero Heritage Trainers Challenge. Little did I realize how much the trajectory of my horsemanship career would change when I started my first horse at age 60. There were more than a few challenges, and Jeremy was always available to offer advice and suggestions. But, just like he said in this interview, Jeremy wanted me and my horse to find the answers on our own. I've been to several of Jeremy's clinics and have enjoyed every one. He has a laid-back teaching style and I always leave with more than a few ideas on how to improve my horsemanship.

    Michael Canfield Lucky Star Horsemanship

    Michael Canfield Lucky Star Horsemanship

    Michael Canfield Lucky Star Horsemanship I met Michael Canfield while learning Clinton Anderson's Downunder Horsemanship Method. Before the podcast, when I was studying videos from Downunder Horsemanship, I joined the No Worries Club in 2007. Back then, the Club had various groups of NWC members around the country. We would get together and practice our horsemanship skills. Michael Canfield formed the NorCal Brumbies and we held several events practicing together. We had a few grand adventures at the Bar SZ Ranch working our horses together. Michael and I stayed friends although we lost contact when he moved to the east coast.
    We still connect on social media and I noticed Michael re-activated his Lucky Star Horsemanship (New York) company. Michael holds clinics, gives demonstrations at horse expos like Equine Affaire, and even hosts his own horse expo.
    It's fun and inspirational to see Michael Canfield pursue his passion for horses and teaching people. We talked about his history with horses and his horsemanship philosophy. along the way we hear stories that formed Michael's approach to horses.

    Madison Seamans Cowboy Poet Veterinarian

    Madison Seamans Cowboy Poet Veterinarian

    Madison Seamans Cowboy Poet Veterinarian Dr. Madison Seamans is one of those rare individuals you can't help but like for the moment you meet him. Then, the longer you are around him, the more you figure out how smart he is. It's a rare find in today's world.
    Dr. Seamans has been practicing vet medicine four nearly four decades. You see a lot of "stuff" in that time, some you just can't help but learn from. He squeezes everything out of those experiences. Part of it is use in his veterinary practice, sharing his knowledge with other, Some he sprinkles throughout his writing and cowboy poetry. And, for those with a visual bent, he saves some for his art.
    This is a very easygoing conversation about some of the new information coming from the annual meeting of the American Association of Equine Practitioner conference. Staying current on equine medicine is a tough challenge. So much new information comes out every year. And, we find out Dr. Seamans knows our local vet, Dr. John Tolley.

    This year, Madison Seamans gets his first book, "Never Trust a Sneaky Pony", published by Trafalgar Square Books. In this book, you'll learn a little bit about horse medicine, but mostly he'll entertain you with the stories.
