A pioneer among women in the equine industry, Lynn Palm Pittion-Rossillon has long had a passion for teaching. In fact, she instructed her first clinic in 1970 – long before any of her contemporaries at the top of today’s clinician market had even considered horsemanship instruction as a viable profession. No other clinician today can begin to match Palm’s proven performance record as an all-around trainer, showman, exhibitor and entrepreneur with a first-class reputation.
Lynn’s accomplishments include:
34 Reserve and World Championships • 4 “Superhorse” Championships • Over 50 special bridleless exhibitions with the legendary Rugged Lark, including the 1989 World Cup and 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games • Judged AQHA World Championship Show 1990, 2000, 2006 and 2011 • Named 2000 AQHA Female Equestrian of the Year by the Women’s Sports Foundation • 2003 Equine Affaire Exceptional Equestrian Educator Award winner • 2006 AQHA Professional Horsewoman of the Year • 2010 World Equestrian Games Clinician and Entertainer • 2013 Western Dressage Association of American 4x World Champion
Impressive as her performance record is, Palm says that her primary goal is to educate others on forming correct riding skills and building knowledge to increase the riding longevity of their horses. Lynn and her husband, Cyril Pittion-Rossillon, have created Palm Partnership Training with the mission of improving the rider first and foremost. The pair conducts clinics at Fox Grove Farm in Ocala, FL and at Royal Palm Ranch in Bessemer, MI in addition to Ride Well clinics across the United States and abroad.
