James Wyllie, 98, beloved Malibu equestrian educator, father and grandfather, passed away March 16 in Agoura Hills.
Born March 2, 1919, Wyllie’s remarkable teaching career spanned six decades, and he continued to instruct students in the ways of the horse until shortly before he died. From preschoolers to senior citizens, he taught over 65,000 people to ride. He was firm but kind, principled but fun, and never stopped being curious about life.
