Wylene Wilson-Davis grew up in Mesa, Arizona and now resides in Missouri with her husband Randall Davis. She began riding at age 6, learning Monte Foreman balance riding techniques from her mother who worked with Mr. Foreman for nearly 20 years. By age 17, Wylene had trained her first horse which led her to a lifetime career commitment.
Throughout her childhood and high school years, Wylene has competed in local, state and national horsemanship competitions. Even today, as a professional horse trainer, she continues to successfully compete in prestigious competitions across the country, such as the Craig Cameron Extreme Cowboy Races, and the Extreme Mustang Makeover programs.
Wylene Wilson made her debut in the movies as one of the stars in Wild Horse Wild Ride, a documentary that follows the lives of a few select trainers while they have just 90 days to break and train a wild mustang and compete and show their mustang at the Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover in Ft Worth, TX.
Wylene Wilson's riding style has established for her a reputation of confidence and courage. She is described as fearless and exciting. Her performances amaze audiences everywhere she competes. Wylene's trademark is
"Wild West Horsemanship."
Wylene Wilson, Wild West Horsemanship is about training both the horse and rider. Wylene teaches horses and their owners how to communicate with each other. She can quickly read and develop a feel for a horse, teaching new skills and ultimately adjusting the horse's attitude and behavior. The final result is a safe, and happy horse and rider team.
The Horse. Wylene specializes in colt starting, and solving dangerous horse behavior. Her credentials as a top trainer are evident in the work that she has done with the Mustang Heritage Foundation's Extreme Mustang Makeover events. At this time, Wylene has broken, trained and competed with wild Mustangs in five Legends Division events, the highest skill level of competition. Wylene was invited to represent the Mustang Heritage Foundation in March 2009 at the Road to the Horse show in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. She won her "Challenge" event with
Filthy Rich, an extraordinary mustang adopted and sponsored by Sharon and Charles Miller of Corpis Christi, Texas.
In September 2009, Wylene won the Western Stampede, Extreme Mustang Makeover Championship in Fort Worth, Texas. Wylene rode
Rembrandt, demonstrating a dozen flying lead changes, text book stops, and quiet hands. Her performance was based solely on correct horsemanship, and a strong bond with her horse. Rembrandt has been adopted by Jerry Bailey of Fort Worth, Texas. Wylene Wilson became a representative of the Mustang Heritage Team in 2010.

The Rider. Wylene is ready to address any individual client request for help. Additionally, she has two programs for both professional riders, and as well as, non-professional. Wylene's
Competitive Horsemanship Clinic is designed to meet the needs of professional trainers who compete in horse shows and competitions. Wylene enjoys these clinics as further opportunity to network with other trainers. She will share her tips and experiences that have helped her win events. Also, she will work with the trainers on horse & rider strategy that is based upon their level of partnership.
The other rider program is the Confidence Horsemanship Clinic. These clinics are designed for the non-professional rider. Specifically, Wylene teaches women and children how to develop confidence and communication with their horse in order to ride safely. Her
Pony Tails program is specifically designed for young girls. Wylene's daughter, Kensley, is now 10 years old. Kensley started riding competitively at age 3. Many women's equestrian groups ask Wylene to design a "fearless riding" program: such as trail rides; arena demonstrations; and even friendly group competitons.
Wylene is dedicated to preserving our Western heritage and equestrian way of life. She serves as a role model and ambassador to young women, as well as, coached drill team members of the Cowgirls Historical Foundation on their horsemanship. Wylene continues to participate in community events such as rodeos and charity fundraisers to help others in need. Wylene has represented the Foundation in the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena for the past five years.
