Sam & Nicky Lyle
Sam and Nicky run an eventing and Thoroughbred
spelling/pre-training business in the Southern Highlands, NSW. Both are five
star eventers and have spent their careers working with Thoroughbreds. Over the years Sam and Nicky have had many Thoroughbreds and absolutely love them, finding them smart, athletic, willing and very suited to the speed and endurance required in eventing. They say a good Thoroughbred is a wonderful horse.
Nicky has produced many quality performance horses mostly from off the track thoroughbreds. Spotting potential and talent in young horses and producing them is a passion of Nicky’s.
Sam believes in training the horse to be as successful as possible but this must be done in a way that is fair on the horse and keeps the horse’s welfare and confidence always as the priority. With the coaching of riders he believes it is important to develop a plan to get each rider to the level they hope to achieve whether that is international or simply to get a place at the local preliminary event. With the selling of horses the most important thing is to match the right horse to the right rider, not just simply to get the horse sold.
