Instruction and Training
Lynn has been teaching riding for over 30 years. She started out riding with her parents on their farm as a small child. Then learned "the horse business" and a tremendous amount about human and equine nature from one of the greatest horsemen of all times, Mr. Mac Abercrombie. She had her first paying job exercising, training, and assisting customers with finding the right horse at Mr. Mac's stable over 30 yrs ago. As a young adult, she continued her love of horses and obtained a nursing degree from the UWG. After nearly 20 yrs in the medical field, Lynn decided to start her family and return full time to the horse business. She started Fairplay Horse and Mule with the support and encouragement of her husband, Mike O'Hara. She was blessed with 2 sons, Reuben and Riley. Lynn has competed in AQHA, APHA, and local organizations. Also, in competitive trail riding with ESTRA. She has started many kids on the road to excelling in equine related occupations and hobbies. She enjoys teaching all ages. Has had students from the ages of 4 to 65 yrs old. Emphasis is on safety, developing riding skills in and out of the arena, and learning how to communicate with your horse. She wishes to instill in her students and their horses a life long love and respect . She believes riding should be fun and enjoyable.
