Even as a young child growing up in Maine, Stacy loved horses and rode whenever she had the chance. She got her first pony, Misty, when she was six. Her mother Sherri was Stacy’s only instructor in riding and training until she went to college. As Sherri looked on she would ask questions that prodded Stacy to think deeply about the mindset of the animals. “Why do you think Misty just did that?” or “How do you think you could get Bay to want to cooperate? What is she thinking?” The habit of getting inside the horse’s head, of thinking like a horse, became second nature to Stacy.

Before coming to notoriety as the equine industry's most popular up-and-coming clinician, Tommy Garland gained recognition as one of the country's best trainers and most successful showmen of Arabian and Half Arabian horses. Tommy has ridden horses virtually all his life and credits his trainer father, also named Tommy, with much of his early learning about horsemanship. Tommy grew up under his father's tutelage training Quarter Horses, Saddlebreds, mules, walking horses and Arabians. "My father had a tremendous gift with horses, and I was lucky to be able to learn from him. He taught me to use patience and care, never to rush with a horse. Some people prefer to forget where they come from — I think about it every day," says Tommy.

"As a Professional Instructor and Trainer I use the Equicizer to keep myself in riding shape. I don't get as much time in the saddle as I used to, instruction and training take up a lot of my time, the Equicizer allows me to soley work on keeping consistant movement and work on myself for however ever long I choose. So when I do have get a chance to just ride, I don't feel as though I've lost any strength or balance. My back feels strong as my core (stomach) muscles are engaged while riding the Equicizer as well as my glutes and legs."
Lisa Wysocky is an author, equine clinician, and motivational speaker who also trains horses for and consults with therapeutic riding programs across the country. Born in Minneapolis and raised in a nearby suburb, in her teens a riding instructor taught Lisa that by striving to be the best you can be, you often become the best anyone can be. That concept of success, and the instructor's insistence that how you won in the show ring--or in life--was more important than what you won, changed her life.
