Matt McLaughlin Clinic Nov 29, 30, Dec 1st

Matt McLaughlin

Matt McLaughlin

Matt McLaughlin studied primarily under Chuck Grant, USDF Hall of Fame member and recognized father of American Dressage. As a working student he not only furthered his dressage riding skills, but also learned the art of training horses in haute école for exhibition riding/performances. Matt spent the next seven years as the Principal Rider, Head Rider, and eventually Head Trainer for the Royal Lipizzaner Stallion Show where he trained as many as 16 stallions and riders for the daily performances all over North America, Europe, and Australia as well as performing his own high-energy solo acts. He has successfully trained horses through Grand Prix which have gone on to compete nationally and internationally as well as multiple horses finished in haute école including Capriole, Courbette and Levade. His dedication to the training of horse and rider is based on his system of horsemanship that integrates classical principles of dressage and Natural Horsemanship techniques with a focus on controllability of the mount.

Matt is currently training and showing horses for competitive dressage and in 2006 was awarded the USDF Bronze and Silver medals.

Although he teaches and trains all levels, his passion is training piaffe, passage and haute école.

LiL Ricky and April show jumping phase of the HT

Nov 9th was our Fall Horse trials and dressage show. We had a super turn out, with 55 rides. Everyone seemed ot enjoy them selves. April Reedy rode two of her young horses Lil Ricky and  Impressions Pride in the Advanced Green HT’s and Baby Green Ct’s, both horses won their respective divisions.

Payana did Tr 4, and did well, esp since she had to do it in the small arena! Not much room to canter a baby!

Our dressage judge was Gaby Hooten, from Roanoke.

Everyone seemed to have a good time.  Many thanks to Penny Ross for organizing this event. and to all ther stalwart helpers who helped us run it.
