Missy Wryn “W”Holistic Natural Horsemanship Trainer On “The Horse Show with Rick Lamb”

Airing June 19th, 20th & 24th

Vaughn Brown, Missy’s blind and deaf student, will be featured on RFD TV “The Horse Show with Rick Lamb” June 19th, 20th & 24th.

Vaughn approached Missy in November 2005 wanting to learn natural horsemanship training. With cochlear implants Vaughn is able to hear and speak, but he can not see. At their first meeting Missy asked Vaughn “how will you know if a horse is going to bite or kick you?” Being a young man still in high school, Vaughn had not considered the consequences of training without sight. He had been riding from time to time at a riding school for handicap children, but was tired of being treated like someone with special needs. “Vaughn just wanted to be treated like anyone else and believes he can do anything he sets his mind too” Missy says. Missy explained the dangers of training and the importance of being able to “read” the horse and their body language, but Vaughn was insistant that he wanted to learn natural horsemanship training. Vaughn and his father convinced Missy to take him on and give it a try. Missy explains “I had to come up with a tactile approach allowing Vaughn to feel slack and tension in the rope, listen to the hoof beats all the while sensing the position of the horse. I started with me as the horse tuning Vaughn into the sounds and feel on the lead rope. From there Vaughn learned to apply Frank Bell’s 7 Step Safety System to my horse Paco and to ride with just a halter and lead rope. Vaughn attended a clinic at my facility in which Frank Bell met Vaughn along with many of Frank’s accredited instructors who had flown in all the way from New Jersey, Virginia, and Washington. We all encouraged Vaughn to consider Equine Massage Therapy because of his special ability with touch and gentleness. By the end of summer 2006 Vaughn had his license in Equine Massage and has begun his own practice. I am so proud of him”. Missy goes on to say “Vaughn has kept in touch with Rick Lamb so Rick decided to do a follow-up piece with Vaughn March 2007 to wrap up the story about this remarkable young man. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about Vaughn as a Tae Kwon Do student and his awards in drumming when you watch the show. I am so honored that Rick chose my student and facility for his filming”.

Watch “The Horse Show with Rick Lamb” on RFD TV June 19th, 20th & 24th to see this incredible young man and his journey with Missy and Paco.
