About Bret

Your coach at Well Balanced Horsemanship is Bret Lambdin.

Bret grew up with horses and has worked around them the majority of his life, spending over 20 years professionally working with horses and ponies of numerous breeds.

In addition to that, he has been involved with teaching, coaching and training for over 30 years.

As Vice president and training coordinator for Dur-A-Shield International, being a guest speaker at many PWNA training conferences, EPA meetings and sitting on the board of directors of PWNA and Enviro Wash U.S.A. as well as having over 1,000 hours of flight instruction given, and spending 8 years as a Field Training Officer at the Altamonte Springs Police Department before his retirement in 2017, Bret developed a unique style of instructing and coaching which he has incorporated into his horse training facility located in Mount Dora Florida.

He is also committed to helping Americas Wild Mustangs become confident partners for the equestrian family in multiple disciplines, by participating in the Mustang Heritage Foundation TIP program as an approved trainer and has served on the Board of Directors for the Southern Obstacle Challenge Association as well as a certified judge for EXCA.

Bret has spent the last several years studying the neuroscience behind how horses think and respond to stimulus and applying the science to real life scenarios for behavior corrections and training. He is now passing on this information in his clinics, lessons and online learning programs.

He has spent over 10 years at this location coaching new and experienced horsemen and women, helping them gain confidence and expand their skills and is highly sought after due to his passionate and encompassing coaching style, abilities with problem horses and understanding of how to connect the neuroscience behind how horses think to training applications.

Bret competed in the Florida Extreme Mustang Makeover in 2017, placing 5th and is looking forward to competing again in the future. He was also selected to compete in the Extreme Mustang Makeover (which is by invitation only) in 2017 but had to withdraw due to damage to the stable from Hurricane Irma. Bret also loves competing in the Extreme Cowboy Racing events and has competed at the World Championships.
