Discover How To Quickly and Easily Improve Your Dressage Riding and Never Feel Alone, Confused & Frustrated Again



Dear Dressage Riding Superstar,

Dressage can be a struggle at first – I get that. When I first started riding I naively set the goal to reach Grand Prix in 5 years! Little did I know that I was in for a difficult journey of tears, frustration and thoughts of giving up.

This journey is where I would make every mistake in the book, feel alone in my training and be lost and confused with what to do next!

One of the advantages of the journey I took to Grand Prix is that I’ve done my 10,000 hours of training, and had the chance to work with dozens of world-class trainers and Grand Prix Dressage riders, and coach 1000’s of riders world-wide.

What I discovered was that I was not unique in my experiences of frustration and helplessness in my dressage journey. In fact, riders all around the world were having these same experiences of confusion, not knowing what to do and feeling alone.

In fact, did you know that most dressage riders struggle with the same things

they all need to know how to…

  • Connect their seat more effectively with the horse
  • Train effectively and productively by themselves
  • Fix small common problems early before they become big problems
  • Keep their hands still and supple
  • Follow the German Training Scale, but more importantly understand the German Training Scale
  • Learn and understand the Rider Success Scale
  • Learn and master the rider mindset so you can ride with complete clarity and focus
  • Progress in their training
  • Have fun learning and enjoy the journey

Have you ever wondered why it’s so hard to get all these things to come together?



It’s not your fault, you’ve probably heard many different opinions and learned from a whole bunch of different coaches and are more confused that ever…

That’s OK. You are in the right place. I have helped thousands of riders just like you get on track with their dressage journey so I’m confident to say I can help you.

You don’t know what you don’t know. And right now you are trying to progress in your dressage journey while missing the secret ingredient. It’s like trying to drive your card without the steering wheel. It just doesn’t work, no matter how hard you try.

That’s why I’m so passionate about sharing the secret with you so you can get massive results and enjoy your dressage journey again.



I found that most riders, myself included, were lacking in development as a rider to keep up with the German Training Scale. Riders and trainers were so focused on what the system was saying, what the horse needed to do, and how the horse needed to develop.

BUT the development of the rider to keep up with the horse was neglected.

And from necessity, ‘The Rider Success Scale’ was created. The Rider Success Scale works on the progress of the rider and pairs perfectly with the German Training Scale. Many coaches tend to focus solely on the horse and neglect the progress of the rider. This creates a frustrating and unrewarding experience for everyone. The riders skill and strength has to be developed along side the horses skill and strength so an even partnership is maintained throughout the training journey.


Riding Success Scale 


The Rider Success Scale ensures real progress is being made and ultimately the journey is much more fun for you when you understand what you are doing and progressing through the levels.

The creation of the Rider Success Scale came about from a drive to become a Grand Prix dressage rider. It took years of work, trial and error, and a belief that there has to better way.

Where I had previously been stuck for so long, I suddenly made serious progress and sped along and progressed through the levels.

The system worked for me but what about other riders? I taught my new training system to a handful of riders, integrating it with the German Training scale. And it was their renewed passion for riding, understanding, and progress that I began to understand the power of the system I had created.

The key to my coaching system is my in depth training in communication, coaching and NLP training. My skill is taking something that is complex and requires a lot of feeling and breaking it down into simple easy to follow step by step instructions I attribute much of this to my training in Neuro- Linguistic Programming (NLP).

It was through this training and studies that I was able to take the complexities of Dressage and teach them so that any rider could understand the principles and apply them to their riding.

I love I can share my proven step-by-step riding system all over the world so riders can receive riding instruction from the comfort of their own home or even their stables.

how Does the Dressage Mastery Program work?

Dressage Mastery Academy teaches the 6 parts that make up the German Training Scale and the 6 parts that make up the Rider Success Scale which results in 12 lessons. Master these 12 lessons and you are going up to the next grade! Each grade still focus on the 12 lessons but adds on the movements required for that level.

If you are training the Grand Prix level or training 1st level the focus is still exactly the same with the emphasis placed on these 12 lessons. The challenge becomes keeping the 12 levels good while you add the movements.

The first level of training in Dressage Mastery is Basics or ‘Fundamentals’ level. This is the key to building your foundation for you as the rider and trainer for you and your horse. In having a solid base, it is easier for you to progress through the grades to get to where you want.

Some of the lessons in foundations include:

  • The 3 must do’s to having a seat like a Grand Prix rider
  • The 3 must do’s to having a seat like a Grand Prix rider
  • How to ensure straightness in your horse… a vital step riders get wrong
  • Losgelassenheit – heard of it? Possibly the secret to the German riders dominance in dressage for so long
  • Preparing for the perfect transition
  • The 7 step checklist for the correct leg-yield
  • 10 rules for a winning mindset
  • Understanding the most misunderstood term in dressage riding… ‘the half-halt’

Quicker Progress


I was once stuck and lost like you are in your your journey. There was no step-by-step system to follow each week and riding was frustrating. I didn’t know what I should be doing.
I didn’t know how to fix my horse problems. AND I didn’t know how to get my horses to go better so I could win competitions.

There was no clear system on how to train and what to work on each ride AND no answers for what to do when things
went wrong.

I am sure you can relate to this!

I read all the books written on dressage, watched many training videos, trained in person with many world class Olympians and trainers, and spent months at their stables.

It took 15 years making mistakes, coming last, getting it
wrong, looking bad and not getting anywhere fast…
BUT I finally figured it out.

So can you. You can do what I did and take the same road


Be smarter than I was and take the short cut. You might not have 15 years and 10,000 spare hours to learn it all or to figure it out. You may not be prepared to fail over and over and over again while you learn what works and what doesn’t. You may not want to feel frustrated, alone and unsure anymore.

Follow the step-by-step journey in Dressage Mastery Academy that condenses down everything I’ve learned. And be guided on an exciting journey where you’ll save time, money, frustrations and thoughts of giving up.

Don’t let the fact that it’s a monthly training program fool you. Over 15 years and 10,000 hours of learning and experience and years of production and development


I had the Dressage Mastery Academy members area designed so it’s super simple to use. Computers and me don’t get along, sometimes
I don’t even know how to turn it on!

So it is super simple to login to, and to walk through step by step what to do. You get to sit back and watch the videos, follow along with your printed notes as I walk you through what to do.

The system is simple and FAST to learn so you can implement this information immediately on your horse next ride.

Can you imagine how much faster and easier it is when you follow a proven system of a rider who has made thousands of costly mistakes before becoming a competitive Grand Prix rider.
