LYN RINGROSE-MOE

 

PHILOSOPHY

Lyn’s whole life has been surrounded by a love of horses. They are noble, beautiful, sensitive, forgiving, courageous, and joyful. They have been her life-long teachers. They have taught her more about life than any person. The knowledge and insight they have given her has permeated all aspects of her being. Lyn has spent most of her life trying to understand these incredible creatures. It is her hope that she can give something back to the horse kingdom by facilitating more harmonious communication between humans and their equine partners through education.

Lyn offers quality instruction and training for the serious Dressage horse and rider. Lyn can help you attain your competitive goals for either yourself or your talented horse. If you are not interested in competing, Lyn is happy to structure a program for you that will suit your needs and goals.

Lyn is committed to her students and offers them a thorough training program. Lyn has a background in show-jumping and combined training, but has spent several years focusing primarily on Dressage. She has competed successfully in the United States and Canada through FEI. She has developed horses and students and brought them up through the levels. Lyn has trained and ridden with many top European coaches and instructors including Major Anders Lindgren, Baron Von Blixen-Finecke, Jack Le Goff, Kalman Dejurenak, the late Jaap Pott, Klaus Burgener, and Herr Manfred Lopp. Lyn currently rides with USEF judge, Paula Lacy and USEF long-listed rider, Jeremy Steinberg.

Lyn trains with kindness and empathy, always keeping the horse's best interest at heart. She loves competing and coaching others to reach their competition goals. Lyn emphasizes goal setting with horses and students. She assists each of her clients in defining and achieving their goals through a common-sense systematic approach. Each client is asked to set yearly goals and is encouraged to pre-schedule their competition season. Lyn enjoys working with horses that are deemed difficult by others and employs other styles of riding and horsemanship to bring these horses around. Lyn studies many types of riding to broaden her horizons. She currently has a 3-year AQHA mare that she is training for reined cow horse events. Lyn also trains her long-time dressage partner, Ori. Lyn's husband, John, also rides and competes in team roping events. Lyn's "behind the scenes" support group consist of a veterinarian, an equine dentist, a muscle-release therapist, an equine chiropractor, and a top-notch farrier. Lyn's husband, John Moe, is a full supporting partner in this business. John acts as social director at all horse shows making sure everyone is having a wonderful time. John also is the Northern California representative for DK Saddlery

Lyn has a background and has shown or trained in the following Western disciplines:  cutting, reining, and reined cowhorse.  As a young person growing up in central California, Lyn developed a love and respect for the Californio Vaquero training methods.  She was exposed at an early age to the California stock horses that worked all week on ranches, and then were used at rodeos or team ropings on the week-end.  Lyn was very excited when Eitan Beth-Halachmy came up with the idea of “Cowboy Dressage”.  This combines two of Lyn’s greatest loves:  Classical dressage and working ranch horses.  Today, Lyn is involved in many exciting projects with Western Dressage.  She is on the national advisory board for the Western Dressage Association of America (WDAA).  She serves on the WDAA Rules/Test writing committee.  Lyn also is an active member of the California Chapter of the Western Dressage Assn. (WDACA).  She recently hosted the WDACA booth along with Sarah Dickinson at the famous “Light Hands Horsemanship” clinic held yearly in Santa Ynez at Art Perry’s Intrepid Farms.
