Like great horse training, the success of Ryan Show Horses is built upon a solid foundation. A foundation built upon a genuine love of horses that first emerged for Johnny and Christine when they were youngsters. Growing up on opposite sides of the continent-Christine in Massachusetts and Johnny in Texas-both spent their teenage years involved with Arabian horses. Taking into account the total commitment required of up and coming horse trainers, it’s no surprise that they met at a horse show!
For Johnny and Christine, chance encounters with Arabian horses provided
opportunities that developed into a life- long appreciation and passion for the
beauty, intelligence and engaging personalities of the Arabian horse- a passion
that has grown into a commitment to the Arabian horse and its future. Both are
deeply involved in the Arabian horse community, not only attending the annual
AHA convention but also by serving on many of the committees that define the
role of the organization.
However, while recognizing and supporting the importance of national and regional
promotional efforts, Johnny and Christine are naturals at creating their own“grass roots”
Arabian horse excitement! They are enthusiastic and genuinely excited to reach out and
connect with everyone and anyone that might have an interest in Arabian horses and to
provide opportunities to meet these amazing horses in person!
