Lynn MacGregor

I have ridden several breeds of horses but Tennessee Walking Horses are my passion.  Their smooth gait and great disposition is very enticing. 

I began training colts in 1996 and they are my first love.  The thought of molding and shaping the mind of young halter horses and then seeing them move on to good steady minded riding horses is a great joy. 

As of 2001 I train full time with my husband.  Now, everyone asked us, “How do you work with your spouse all day long?” GOOD QUESTION 

We train together but we rarely see each other except for lunch.  We have approximately 24 horses in training;  I work half and he works half.  Our philosophy on training is to work as a team.  We switch the horses every 2-3 rides so that we are aware of what each horse is doing.  I work on certain functions such as, round pen (ground training), ground driving, flexibility, long walking for stride and animation, cantering and halter for showing.  He may work on faster work for stretching, animation and cantering.  He starts all the colts under saddle after I teach them ground training. Like I stated TEAMWORK is a must.

            I love training amateur horses probably more than I like to show myself and I train lots of Country Pleasure and Trail Pleasure horses for their owners to show. I get a thrill knowing that I have trained a horse that will give their owner 100% gratification going into the ring and placing at the top of their class.

Obviously you have noticed that Allen All Around is one of my most shown horses.  I owe a lot of my experience and confidence to Allen and American Legend.  They alone taught me how to be a good consistent trainer and they have led me to where I am today. 

Each customer can take a lesson on their horse while visiting to be sure they are at the top of their game for each competition.  Again, that satisfaction of knowing that I helped this team win or place well in a class makes me really happy and being the ground trainer is not so bad either!
