Dressage Clinic


Silva Martin

April 1&2

at Journey's End Farm


German born and trained dressage rider, Silva Martin has achieved success in the show ring and is a sought-after trainer and coach in dressage and eventing. Having relocated to the US from Australia in 2007, she has quickly become one of the most sought-after trainers in the United States. Early in her career Silva passed her Bereiters exam at the German Riding School in Warendorf with an "excellent" mark and is fortunate to have apprenticed with noted horsemen Paul Beck, Rudolf Zeilinger and Hubertus Schmidt. Through these experiences she learned what a well-trained Grand Prix horse feels like and is now able to convey that feeling to her students. Tall, athletic and elegant in the saddle, Silva is a tough competitor. But she is also down to earth, approachable, and relates well to people, making her a superb coach. She has a solid education in dressage training and is happy to impart her knowledge to students of any level. Today, training horses and riders to the top level is Silva's main focus, but she is equally adept at training young horses and inexperienced riders as she is Grand Prix competitors. She trains all her horses with the same basics that she learned in Germany, and is adept at translating that feel into words for her students.
