Training Philosophy Rob's Card

As a professional coach, trainer, and clinician, Robert has developed a unique "illustrative approach" to riding. Robert believes in establishing a strong dressage base as the foundation to all other disciplines.

Robert's dressage training gives his students a distinct advantage over the competition. Robert guides his students through each training session with a unique style by patiently breaking down each movement to fit the horse and rider combination. For eventers and jumpers, the horse and the rider learn to apply dressage techniques to improve their jumping ability and perform cleaner rounds.
