I love John. He was one of the last of the great old school trainers. Great friend. He knew my other trainers who had passed and took me on. He got me back into it after decades out. I love him. Always will. I miss him. I ride for him, Jimmy Kohn and Bill Herring...every time I hop in the saddle. Part of my heart is gone with them.

I first met Mr. Lipari in 1971. I had made the transition from show hunters three day eventing, and I don't think he knew what to do with me, though he was always respectful and helpful. I felt honored when I was able to take a few jumping lessons from him. He was a positive influence on many people and I feel that he will live on through his students and their students as well.
