Interview with Lynn Palm

Welcome to the Dressage Today podcast sponsored by US Rider. In this episode, Stephanie talks about her recent trip to San Diego, and Aviva answers an “Ask the L” question. Linda says, “My horse sometimes tilts his head to the right especially in leg yield. He’s had his teeth checked, and there does not seem to be anything physically wrong with him. How will this affect our score?” Then Stephanie talks to legendary Quarter Horse trainer Lynn Palm.

For more than 50 years Lynn Palm has championed the partnership of horse and rider. An international clinician and competitor, she travels extensively teaching the fundamentals of Palm Equestrian Academy throughout the country and abroad.
