About Lindsey
Lindsey was born and raised in Atkinson, New Hampshire.  She has always shown a love and passion for animals, aspiring to be a veterinarian as a young child and later becoming more invested in the agricultural industry.  Her adventures truly began in high school where she worked as a stable hand for a local farm in exchange for riding the farm's horses.  The experiences on the farm led her to study Animal Sciences in college, where she attended Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, graduating in May 2013 with a B.S. in Animal Science.  As a recruited varsity track athlete in college, competing in the pole vault, Lindsey had a limited amount of time she could dedicate to riding horses.  She did, however, join the Western Equestrian Club where she took riding lessons once a week.
 
In the summer of 2012 Lindsey moved out west to Dubois, Wyoming to work as a wrangler at Absaroka Ranch.  Working with the thirty horses at the ranch was a life changing experience for her.  It was that summer that Lindsey truly appreciated the incredible intelligence and connections that can be made with a horse and decided she wanted to pursue horse training.  Upon graduation in 2013, Lindsey returned to the ranch for the following summer and fall outfitting seasons.  That winter she then went on to work for a horse trainer in Wyoming.  The first hand experiences she gained working for a trainer solidified her aspirations to be a horse trainer.
 
Lindsey was eager to dive into the horse training world.  She decided to pursue further education through a horse trainer certification program.  Being fortunate enough to apply and receive the Karen Clark Scholarship, she was able to participate in the Brandi Lyons Horse Training Certification Program in Cave Creek, AZ.  Lindsey underwent intensive training throughout the Program from February through May, where she Graduated from Brandi's Level I Program as a Certified Trainer.
 
Brandi then hired Lindsey on as her assistant trainer to travel with her across the country to help with Horsemanship Clincis and Horse Expos.  Lindsey then returned to Wyoming for the months of August and September to establish Beyond the Bit Horse Training before going back down to Arizona in October for Brandi's second level of the Certification Program.  After two more months of intensive training with Brandi during October and November, Lindsey became a Level II Certified Trainer.  She thne returned to Dubois, WY to train horses for her business Beyond The Bit Horse Training.  In 2016 Lindsey went back on the road with Brandi to assist her in clinics and expos. Since then, Lindsey has grown a successful business with Beyond The Bit spending the summers in Dubois and winters in Scottsdale, AZ.  

As of Januray 2020, Lindsey has moved to Cool, CA.  She will be establishing Beyond The Bit Horse Training in Cool as well as begining her journey competing in endurance riding.
