About the trainers

Rising Star's Head Trainer, Joey Burnett has many National Titles in Western, English and Halter disciplines. Joey specializes in bringing the horse and rider to their fullest potential. Joey has had a love for horses for as long as he can remember. As a young man while taking part in a Horse Expo, Joey caught the eye of world famous horse trainer John Lyons. Joey was working his BLM Mustang, Satriani, in the ring, when John noticed him. John was so impressed he asked Joey to be his assistant during his demonstrations. Since then, Joey has spent many years working with horses, learning from them how to communicate so horse and rider can become one. Joey, takes great pride in the number of National Titles accomplished by his students and their horses.

Joey and his wife Karen met through their love for horses. Karen purchased a stallion (Evolution) and Joey trained him. That year Evolution became 4th National Champion, both were thrilled. Joey and Karen have been paired ever since. If you see one you usually see the other, they make a winning team. Rising Star is proud to have them on our staff.
