Bright Zip  BRIGHT ZIP will be remembered best for his connection with contemporary clinician phenomenon, John Lyons. Foaled in 1975, BRIGHT ZIP is by WILD ZIP and out of MIGHTY LU, has sired 20 foals--some of which are point earners. The exposure this stallion has given the Appaloosa breed is nothing short of impressive.For nearly 20 years, "Zip" and Lyons have been a team, demonstrating Lyons' training techniques. What started out as a partnership based on completing day-to-day chores has now become the basis for the Lyons family's primary source of income.

So much so that the Lyons spend 11 months of the year on the road sharing his training techniques with literally thousands of equine enthusiasts. Zip's part in the success is even more extraordinary due to the fact that a few years back an allergic reaction left him blind. The pair's trusting relationship has enabled Zip and Lyons to continue to work as a team, which has drawn considerable media attention with write-ups in nearly every equine publication including Appaloosa Journal. That, combined with Lyons' extensive marketing and advertising campaigns, has given the Appaloosa breed an immeasurable amount of positive exposure worldwide.
