Dressage Coach,  Judge, Competitor

Patience, Practice, Trust

CalgaryDressage.com is created to highlight my experience within the Calgary area dressage scene. I will share that I began riding in the junior jumpers and later on in adult amateur jumper classes in the 1970’s, before Spruce Meadows. I learned to ride all disciplines back in the day and many of us participated in the local hunts held at Graham Ranches and Fred Mannix’s place, now Fish Creek Park, in south Calgary.

I took a hiatus from riding while attending the University of Calgary, achieving a Bachelor of Physical Education and Bachelor of Education Degree. I taught and coached at a Calgary area highschool, married and have two great kids. My son and daughter both are Pony Club alumni. Ponies and children’s dressage in the Calgary area is a specialty.

When I had time to devote myself to riding, I chose dressage as the discipline of choice. I pursued understanding the equine mind and the training process that makes the aids to the horse most easily understood. This along with correct rider biomechanics leads to success in the dressage ring.

My goal, as a coach is to allow every student and their horses to better themselves through dressage training. Some students are dedicated dressage riders and some come for training to improve their jumping performance. I cross train in my own program to provide a well rounded equine athlete.

2015 has been off to an excellent start. Ive returned from a trip to Australia to explore programs and learn from dressage professionals.  I’ve achieved my “r” judge accreditation from Dressage Canada and will complete my Competition Coach Specialist in Dressage accreditation in July.

I am busy with an exciting prospect, Lord of Londonderry. London is a 2008 imported Hanoverian gelding, Londonderry x Brentano II.  We will hopefully make our Calgary area dressage debut this season.

I have a few openings for students at this time.  I am also booking show dates for warm-ups and coaching should your regular coach not be available. I’m available to serve as a Recorded Judge as well.
