Favorite thing about training horses: "I view each horse in my barn as a puzzle to be solved. I love the challenge of putting the right pieces together to make those puzzles complete. From a business aspect, I enjoy producing a quality product for the public, and providing a superior service to my clientele. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing my customers happy with their experience."
Most memorable win or show pen accomplishment: "There have been several that stand out in my professional career, but winning the Amateur Reining Championship at the AQHA World Show was particularly special. It was the last time that I showed my favorite horse, Lulus Freckles, and the win cemented my desire to pursue a career-path in the horse industry."
Favorite style of Kimes Ranch Jeans: “The one I wear the most is the Cal,” Lyon said. “I just got a pair of the Raw James and I’m a big fan of those. I certainly have multiple pairs of the Watson and the Watson 2.0. I think at one point I have tried every style."
