Our Team

Trainer

Lindsay Odell has 35+ years experience with horses. She's been riding since she was a toddler, starting out in Southern California at a Hunter Jumper barn, she had excellent trainers who started her from the ground up. From there she and her family moved North to a little town called Solvang California in Santa Barbara County, where she and her family began an Arabian breeding and training farm. Lindsay showed in English Pleasure & Equitation, Country English Pleasure, Western Pleasure & Equitation, Halter and In-Hand classes and she worked with many Top Trainers in the Horse Industry. She went on to win many awards and accomplishments in Class "A" Shows and Regional Championships qualifying for US Nationals every year from horses she started and trained. In addition to the show training Lindsay also uses Natural Horsemanship skills with her horses, her influences as a youth were Monty Roberts and Ray Hunt methods which inspired her to develop her own unique method with successful results. She began giving riding lessons and training at her parents Santa Ynez Valley farm (Sleepy Hollow Livestock Company) in her early teens and went on to become a professional horse trainer at the age of 18 working for many big farms throughout the Santa Ynez Valley Ca. In 1997 Lindsay married her husband Seth, who is a Firefighter and started a family with two beautiful children of whom both are also accomplishment riders and handlers of horses.

Assistant-Daughter

Jasmine Odell (daughter) has been riding since she was in the womb. She has gleaned all of her knowledge from Mom, Lindsay and had many lessons to become the successful horsewoman she is today. Jasmine started showing Welsh ponies when she around 5 years old and moved on to larger horses as she entered her teens. She enjoys learning and working with horses daily and with her homeschool schedule she is able to dedicate her mornings to her horse training and evenings to school.

Ground's Keepers

Jacob (son) & Seth, our amazing grounds keepers, they groom the arenas, clean corrals, fill waters and help us keep this place running, Jacob also is a successful horseman though he'd rather be driving horse power than enter the horse show arena lol.

About our Training Program

Trainer Lindsay at Odell Show Horses (OSH) has over 35 years experience in bringing in throw-away horses and bringing them back to life, in health and training, the OSH team has had many “before” and “after” stories of horses and ponies that had no chance and were given a whole new life and most went on to be successful in the show pen. To see some of our Rehab/Retrained horses please click here to visit our "Rehab page" 


When Lindsay starts horses young or old, she will take her time evaluating the horse and will start from the basics and move up, most horses that OSH has had in training either had “Swiss cheese” training where many steps were missed, or they’ve had the wrong training which causes mental “scars” which more often than not can take much longer to fix than if no one had touched them at all. OSH believes not every horse is the same so they don’t use a “cookie cutter” approach to training, they individualize each horse and work on their strengths and focus on weaker points and use training methods that will suit them.
