Riding from the Heart

A New Book By

Sheryl Lynde


























About Sheryl

As long as I can remember, my passion has always been horses. Being born and raised in Northern California, I never had the opportunity to have a horse of my own; however, I would ride whenever there was even the remotest opportunity to do so via rental horses, volunteering for Riding Therapy programs for the handicapped, or just begging everyone from friends to acquaintances who were horse owners to allow me to do anything from grooming to cleaning stalls as long as I could just be near a horse.


 I began my career training horses in 2004, after graduating from the John and Josh Lyons Certification Program. I have started colts and worked with troubled horses for the better part of 20 years. In doing so I developed a specialty - the fearful horse. In helping these horses, I learned that the buck, the bolt, the rear - those are symptoms. What is the cause. Fear, Aggression, Lack of Respect? After resolving the issues that created the symptoms, I never had to ride the buck or the rear. I also discovered the parallels to my own life - not in an anthropomorphic way, but in a realistic way. How separation or loss of loved ones affects us. Being made to perform a task or live a life that was not in our hearts to do creates unwanted behaviors or simply not having meaningful work has its consequences - it all affects the horse as well.





This was the inspiration for my book - Riding From The Heart.  

I detail my journey of how I worked with a handful of the most difficult or troubled horses in my career and how we came out the other side. I have been and continue to be a contributing columnist for the California Horse Trader Magazine, detailing specific behaviors, how to identify and how to resolve them. This is a career I believe to be my life’s purpose. I’ve never stopped learning from mentors whose shoulders I stand on and from each horse that has come to me for training.

I truly feel blessed
